Children are born learning! Research shows that from birth to age 5 it is essential that children have the highest quality education and care possible, as 85% of brain development occurs during this time. Our job at Key West Early Childhood Center (KWECC) is not only to provide quality care and preschool experiences for the children but to also support parents. Over the past decade, Iowa has ranked in the top 3 states for children under age 6 whose parents are working. This makes our job of supporting children and families even more important!
