Available Childcare

There are three organizations that offer childcare with pickup after school at the Downtown School.  They may also offer care on non-school weekdays. The centers are not staffed by Des Moines Public Schools employees so this information is offered as a resource only. Please contact the center directly with questions, as our office does not keep more specific details.

Bright Horizons, provides childcare on-site at the Downtown School. 515-556-6417
Creative Center for Young Children, buses students from DTS to their care facility. 515-280-3032
Lil’ Scholars, uses a mini-van to transport students to their facility. 515-285-2256

If you contact the DTS office about childcare, you will be referred back to this page.
Thank you.
