About Us

Since 1996, Prairie Flower Children's Center has offered an alternative early-education model for children from Ames and nearby communities rooted in values of simplicity, connection to nature and care for the environment, each other and community.

As a nature-immersed cooperative preschool and mixed-age kindergarten, Prairie Flower programs seek to honor unpressured childhood as a critical time for healthy development. Our play-based, child-centered curriculum emphasizes belonging, empathy, community and imagination, and strives to meet each individual child right where they are.
