Daycare & Preschool

Welcome to Blessed Beginnings

Blessed Beginnings strives to provide a safe, loving Christian environment where children develop a positive self-concept based on a trusting relationship with God.


Our Objectives

We're excited to get to know

your young ones.

- Blessed Beginnings offers age-appropriate mental, emotional, social, spiritual and physical development of young children in a Christian environment, grounded in God’s word and purpose. We aim to teach simple Christian truths; proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in a clear and simple manner that children understand; encourage the child to help him/herself; serve the childcare needs of the members of Nazareth and others in the Cedar Valley; and help children through observation, evaluation and parent-teacher conferences. The activities and curriculum aim to develop and support well-rounded individuals and families to acknowledge the daily presence of Christ in their lives.

- Our preschool program is designed to meet the educational needs of 3-5 year old's. The Christian curriculum is integrated into our daily activities and interactions.

- We also provide before and after school care for children who are enrolled in Cedar Falls elementary schools. Transportation to and from school is provided in the school-age program, and the summer program offers full-time childcare to elementary-aged children.
