Family-Owned Preschool & Kindergarten

The Hiawatha Day School is locally owned and operated by the husband and wife combo of Blayne and Christa Fielder.

Three months after the birth of their son, Blayne and Christa relocated back to the midwest from Arizona to be closer to family. Not wanting to place their newborn in child care, Christa opened an in-home licensed preschool/childcare and was at max capacity within a month and was soon turning away families for lack of space. Seeing the strong interest from parents desiring a structured, loving program, the dream of opening a larger facility was born.

Christa serves the preschool as a hands-on owner and director, with 14 years of experience in the education field as a teacher, director, and prevention coordinator. For eight years she taught a full-day Kindergarten program at a private school in Scottsdale, AZ, while also serving as assistant director. She received her bachelors degree in education from Southern Illinois University.

With the support and encouragement from family, clients and those in the public wanting a great option for their children, we're proud to realize the dream of building and owning an exclusive child care option for families in the Cedar Rapids area...THE HIAWATHA DAY SCHOOL.
