The early years of a child are the most critical stage of a child's development, and we have a responsibility to do all that we can to optimize a child's developmental experience through a quality childcare center. The purpose would be to provide an around the clock childcare center for families with non-traditional working hours. 

We can address the childcare desert crisis by organizing a budget for the improvements of current childcare facilities as well as the development of a new childcare facility, we hope to improve the availability and quality of childcare in Jasper County, Iowa. Benefits to the city and its residents include the development, growth, and sustainability of a reliable workforce. Thus, increasing the earnings, productivity, and revenue of employers, taxpayers, and working families. Working parents will not miss work, quit, or cut their hours. Children will be in a safe, healthy, and developmentally rich environment. Families who work non-traditional hours will have a childcare option. A childcare center will help to improve the economy in Newton, Iowa.
