About the Provider


Smart Kinder Care is a private preschool academy for children ages 2 - 5 years.

We have 12 years of experience in early childhood development and offer a curriculum with a weekly changing theme that supports the learning of social, emotional, cognitive, sensory, literacy, math, life and fine and gross motor skills.                                                                                                      We thrive to get every child ready for Kindergarten at his or her own speed.

Having a mixed age class room is an advantage to every child because not only can each child learn from the teachers, the learning resorces/materials provided and their peers in their agegroup but also from older and younger children.                                                                                                Children can teach eachother so much without even trying just by being themselves.

Our program runs Monday - Friday from 8.00 - 12.30 with a healty breakfast and lunch.

Please feel free to look at our facebook page AJ Scheele Smart Kinder Care.                                      You may also call us at (515) 333 - 9210 to set up a meet and greet and tour our facility.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

My wife and I enrolled our son with AJ Scheel Smart Kinder Care. When we met with the providers we advised that he had never been in daycare and he is two. We advised it would be a major adjustment for him. After two day in their care they say us down and said they had concerns that he was on the autism spectrum. Two days people two days (and they are not doctors). So we as parents have it sometime, had him evaluated by professionals and they had zero concerns. As parents we decided to go with a different care provider that will not label our son at such a young age.

We gave our notice and after that things changed. Don't know what happened, but our son always wanted to go to daycare see his teachers and friends. That all changed a day after our notice. He cried at drop off, he cried at lunch and was over joyed to get out of there at the end of the night.

We pulled our son from care a couple days early. They didn't even say good bye to him. They removed us from their page and blocked us. We kept this very professional with them and showed no negative signs to them.

I would never suggest sending your kid to their house for care. It makes me wonder what really happened I. Their care the last week our son was there. He is to young to tell us and that scares me they have scarred him.
