#MemberMonday
What services does Theodore's Academy offer? We offer preschool and childcare services for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

How many years has your business been a Chamber member? Our business opened in March 2020 and has been a Siouxland Chamber member since December 2019.

What do you enjoy most about being a Chamber member? The best part about being a Siouxland Chamber member is knowing we have additional support from our business community. We also love all the connections and resources the Chamber provides its members.

What is a fun or surprising fact about your business?
Our center is built around the idea that the natural exploration of outdoors is a priority. Our age groups are categorized by a garden theme, seedlings, sprouts, blossoms, and little gardeners. We incorporate nature into at least one lesson plan a day per age group and do as many outdoor activities as possible. We have bird baths and bird feeders at the windows of the classrooms. The children have experienced toads, birds, bugs, wildflowers, crops and more.
