About HDS

About Us

As parents, we understand just how difficult it is to find the perfect place for your precious little one. We acknowledge the apprehensiveness you may feel when leaving your child with anyone other than family. You want your child to be loved and cared for just as you would, and that’s exactly what we’ll do. Whether your child is six weeks old, in preschool or in kindergarten, he or she will know exactly how unique and special they really are. We’re not interested in being the biggest preschool in the Cedar Rapids area, only the best.

What Makes Us Different?

When you walk through the doors of the Hiawatha Day School, you’ll find a facility that is second to none. You’ll meet a full staff of teaching professionals eager to educate and love your child. You’ll find a place where your child feels as if he or she is the most important thing in the world.

We strive to be a loving extension of home with an academic foundation. We believe it’s never too early to start learning. Enrolling your child at The Hiawatha Day School means they’re preparing for their future each and every day in a structured environment full of love and encouragement. Our beautiful new facility in Hiawatha is custom-built specifically to meet the needs of each child as they grow.

Ninety percent of brain development takes place in the first three years of life.

The first five years of a child’s life can lay the foundation for successful life long learning. We plan to take full advantage of this window of opportunity to ensure your child reaches his or her maximum potential.
