Crittenton's West High Infant Center opened in August of 2006, to meet the needs of high school students in the Sioux City School District who had children. This unique program set forth to make a way for students/parents to complete their high school education without extra barriers.
In collaboration with West High School, we continue to eliminate barriers that prevent students/parents from achieving academic success. One of those barriers is transportation for students/parents and their infants. Infant Center staff and West High staff work closely to establish safe means of transportation to and from school.
Our Infant Center uses a research based curriculum, and charts achieved developmental milestones for each infant. We serve infants 0-23 months old. We work closely with Northwest AEA and can make referrals for infants demonstrating a developmental delay.
Our staff provides a safe nurturing environment for our infants and families. We provide the opportunity for students/parents to participate in their child's early learning experiences.
This past year we have opened our infant center to community families and Sioux City School District employees. We are pleased to meet the need for infant care in Sioux City.
