Capitol Park Early Learning Center is proud to support the professional development and training of our teaching staff by offering frequent employer paid opportunities for training. Because of our commitment to a high quality educational environment for our students, all lead teachers are required to have a minimum of a CDA, (Child Development Associate) credential or an advanced degree or achieve one within the first two years of hire.

Our center is one of six centers in Iowa that has been awarded the Drake Early Head Start grant. This grant requires ALL infant and toddler staff to have their CDA or an advanced degree in the Early Childhood Education field. This is a tremendous asset for our students and for our families. When we know better we do better. This is our commitment to quality for the clients we serve.
