Stanton Child Resource Center
The Stanton community has many advantages for the nurture of young children. Tradition, stability, security and individual expression are part of the quality of life in our community. We believe that these are important elements to the full development of each child’s potential. Our child resource center is designed to provide services to the community and surrounding area that embody the following principles:
1. QUALITY: Each child deserves a quality experience and the care that he or she needs to develop. Parents deserve quality care for their children and resources for their parenting. They deserve to know that those caring for their children are reliable, knowledgeable and loving partners in caring for their child.
2. COOPERATION: The Stanton Child Resource Center is designed to be more than a day care facility. It is a partnership with parents in providing resources
for effective parenting. Working together with social service agencies, health care agencies, local business, local educational agencies, and other childcare providers we seek to form a network of effective resources for parents and children.
3. ECONOMY: Our community is not a highly affluent area and concern for the cost of childcare resources is of concern to many parents. Through building partnerships with local businesses and organizations every effort is made to manage costs. Resource sharing, effective financial stewardship and avoiding duplication enables the Stanton Child Resource Center to keep costs manageable for area families.
The principle purpose of the Stanton Child Resource Center Incorporated shall be to provide resources to families and children, including but not limited to providing supervised educational, emotional, physical and social programs for children, and educational, developmental and support services to parents and families.
It is the Stanton Child Resource Center’s mission to provide high quality, affordable child care to families in our community and the surrounding area. The Stanton Child Resource Center is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that serves families with children 6 weeks to 12 years. SCRC operates in accordance with the Iowa Department of Human Services Licensing Standards and Procedures and has been awarded Level 5 in the State of Iowa Quality Rating System. The Stanton Child Resource Center offers a comprehensive 3-year-old preschool program during the Stanton Community School year, as well as provides before and after school care to school age children. During the Summer months SCRC also provides an educational program for school-aged children.
