Summer Full-Day Child Care

Kids & Company is proud to offer full-day child care for children ages 4 to 12 to all families in Council Bluffs, Omaha, and surrounding communities.

Kids & Company is licensed by the Iowa Department of Human Services, and we participate in the State of Iowa Quality Rating System (QRS), which was developed to raise the quality of childcare in Iowa, to increase the number of children in high-quality childcare settings, and to educate parents about quality in childcare. There are five levels to be earned in succession. Each level requires providers to meet rigorous training, environmental, and programming criteria.
