My son got a great start in life at A Child's View school. He attended for five years. He is now a graduate of the U of A and works at Raytheon.

A Child's View Preschool opened its doors on August 25,1985 with a licensed capacity of 25 students in 900 square feet. We are now licensed for 125 students and have over 4,000 square feet to work and play in. There are two playgrounds in the rear of the building, with a separate area for our youngest students. We are licensed through the Department of Health Services and have a contract with the Department of Economic Security.
Several of our former students of A Child's View Preschool now bring their children to our school. It is such a delight to see our students as responsible, young adults, and we feel privileged to teach their children. Of course Mrs. Terry Shaw and Mrs. Olivia Rivera feel their age when we enroll a second generation!
Some of our former students loved their preschool experience here so much, they decided to work here. Some have decided to become educators because they were inspired by the teachers at A Child's View School. We feel honored and blessed to have known these wonderful people. We are also thrilled when we receive visits from our former students, which happens quite often each year.
A Child's View Preschool has its original owners still at the helm. Terry Shaw has a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, with a minor in Early Childhood from the University of Northern Iowa.

Lead Teacher Olivia Rivera is an original teacher at A Child's View Preschool, instructing four year olds since 1985!
