Le Mars Community Daycare acquires Building Blocks

Le Mars Community Daycare Center Wednesday announced the purchase of the existing Building Blocks childcare facility in Le Mars.
Rich Zeittlow, president of the Le Mars Community Daycare Center, says this is part of a broader plan to expand and improve child care in Le Mars.


This is one of the initial steps toward bringing daycare in Le Mars under one entity.


Building Blocks is the largest community child care center in Lemars.


Another component of the purchase is that the Crittenton Center of SIoux City will be contracted to provide child care services at the new Community Daycare.


The change will be completed by early January


Zeittlow says the LCDC is an organization suited to help develop and expand daycare in Le Mars.


There is a shortage of 400 day care spaces in Le Mars. Acquiring Building Blocks will cover 270 of those spaces.  There’s also room to expand the facility in the future.
