Farm Bureau Update November 15th

Farm Bureau is almost ready! Unfortunately, we haven’t quite finished yet so we will not be able to provide an open house today, but our management staff will be able to give you the full tour tomorrow when you arrive. You’ll probably be able to notice some big differences right away! If any teachers would like to stop by today to see their new room, you are welcome to anytime between 11:30 and 1:00. We can’t wait to be with you all tomorrow!

Farm Bureau Location Update

We are hard at work getting our Farm Bureau location ready for all of our new families! With new carpet, new partitions, new paint, and a brand new set-up with a cafeteria, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, but we will be ready for our Monday opening date! If we finish by Saturday, we plan on having an open house the following day. We will keep you updated on our progress.

Farm Bureau Expansion

We are extremely excited to announce that Generation Next has been approached with the opportunity to expand into the Farm Bureau offices in West Des Moines! We could not be happier or prouder of our incredible staff who have helped us develop and maintain a great reputation that has led us to being asked to take over the child care facility within the building. We will open January 1st, 2016 and are excited to begin helping a whole new community of families and children learn and grow!
