Little Farmers Preschool & Daycare

$1,655 of $80,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 12 months



My name is Allison Phillips. I’m a Northeast Iowa native. I grew up on a farm outside of Frankville, attended elementary to high school in Postville, and graduated from UNI in 2004 with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. My husband, Josh, and I – along with our four kids, Libby, Kyla, Drake, and Marley – have been residents of Decorah for the past six years.

Our community is an excellent place to raise children! Much of this is due to the high-quality education provided for our students. There is, however, a continual need for daycare and preschool education for the youngest members of our families.

We are beyond excited to announce  the coming of a new preschool and  daycare to our community, Little Farmers Preschool and Daycare! Teaching is, without a doubt, my passion and purpose on Earth.  I’ve always wanted to make a difference in the world and share my passion in a way that set me apart.

Little Farmers will be the area’s FIRST farm-based, non-profit, state-licensed preschool. We can’t wait to open our gates this fall and start teaching our curriculum – one that encourages children to learn as they play; to let kids be kids!

On a farm – two miles north of Decorah on Hwy 52 – we’ll have a coop full of chickens, four sweet bunnies, a miniature horse, flower and food gardens, and a large natural playground equipped with the fixings for fort-building, hillside slides, and more. Age-appropriate, child-driven lessons will be taught both outdoors and inside our completely renovated 3,600 sq. ft. 1967 farm out-building. We will also offer wrap around daycare from 6:30 am-5:30 pm for those families enrolled in Little Farmers preschool.

One of the first things we teach our
kids and students is that it’s okay – and important - to ask for help.

We’re taking a page out of that lesson book and doing just that. We need your help.  Would you consider making a donation to Little Farmers? All funds raised will go toward construction of both indoor and outdoor play areas and features for our furry and feathered farm friends.

Our “Little Farmers” thank you in advance for your support, and I, too, am forever grateful for any donation you can offer. Thank you so much!

Sincerely,
Allison Phillips
Founder and Teacher
