North Polk CSD - Lakes Early Learning Center Child Care Partnership

August 5, 2022

Following board approval last week, we are excited to announce that the North Polk Community School District has officially partnered with Lakes Early Learning Center to provide on-site child care before and after school to our district families. Lakes Early Learning Center is owned and operated by Mrs. Emily Feldman. Emily and her husband Tom have two children, Holland and Sullivan, and reside within the North Polk District.  

We are excited to begin this partnership and help Lakes Early Learning Center expand its school-age program, Adventure Club, to serve more children within our district. Child care will be offered on-site at Lakes Early Learning Center in Polk City (near Big Creek Elementary) and West Elementary starting this fall. We hope to gain more interest in this program and expand to Central Elementary soon. This addition and partnership will offer several enrollment options to accommodate families' differing schedules. The options available include: 

  • Before and after school

  • Before school only

  • After school only

  • Only late start Mondays. 

Interested families can complete a short Google at the link here. To keep up with Lakes Early Learning Center or to learn more, visit their website, Facebook, and Instagram. We are excited about this partnership and hope this will help fill a much-needed void in our communities.
