Des Moines Public Schools Early Childhood Programs provide quality learning experiences to help promote growth of young children and their families. We adhere to state and national program standards to achieve our goal of Kindergarten Readiness.
Des Moines Public Schools uses Nutrislice to provide easier and more complete menu information about breakfast and lunch at all of our schools.
Visit DMPS Nutrislice to see what’s for breakfast or lunch at any school on any day of the school year.
