Just to clarify, do you need a kindergarten, or a preschool? How old are the kids?

Yes, I think preschool and/or daycare is the term you want Kindergarten is the year before 1st grade and is usually located at the elementary. At least, I think that's right...my daughter isn't that age yet, so maybe things have changed since I went to kindergarten!

Anyways, my daughter went to Good Shepherd Center, just a couple blocks from the hospital, as an infant and we loved it. I've never heard anyone who sent their kids there say a bad word about it. About GSC | Good Shepherd Center

Bright Horizons is the daycare located on campus, right next to the hospital in the Westlawn building. Definitely very convenient, but also the most expensive one in town, and the waiting list is long.

The sooner your friend can get on a waiting list, the better, as the daycare centers in Iowa City tend to be pretty full.

I believe some Iowa Schools are offering free to low cost preschool based on income. Your friend might want to contact the Iowa City Community School District and ask (you'll have to Google it).
