Day Care

The Peru Day Care, is a non-profit corporation that provides quality child care for infants and children ages 6 weeks to 13 years. The Day Care is located in the lower level of the TJ Majors building on the Peru State College campus. Licensed by the State of Nebraska, and a member of the Step Up To Quality program, the center seeks to exceed all federal, state, and local standards pertaining to child care facilities. Having this service on our campus is a wonderful benefit to students, faculty, staff and area citizens. The fact that it has been here for more than twenty-five years is especially noteworthy!

Our Philosophy
The Peru Day Care believes that a child's early years are his/her most important years. We work to make certain that the time a child spends in training is not wasted, but is productive time that contributes to the formation of his/her being and personality. We believe that children should progress at their own rate, explore and expand their interests, and work and play together while being guided toward becoming happy, healthy, and responsible individuals.
