The center was opened in 1969 with an enrollment of 11 kids. It was began by Church Women United who saw the need for quality child care in Grinnell and the surrounding area. The 1st location was in the basement of the old Presbyterian Church on the corner of fifth and State Sts. Several years later, the center moved to the basement of St. Francis Manor, which had been extensively renovated.
