Humpty Dumpty Daycare

Humpty Dumpty Daycare provides quality daycare based on the individual needs of children in a class and the collective needs of the class as a whole.  As a result, we will have children with a stronger sense of self and a stronger sense of community.

Humpty Dumpty Daycare is an education based center.  Our focus is on developmental skills such as fine and gross motor, listening, following directions, expressive & receptive language, problem solving, and appropriate social behaviors.  We offer programs for infants, toddlers, pre-kindergartners, and school-age children.

Our Daycare hours are from 5:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  We care for children ranging from 6 weeks through 12 years old.  If you would like to enroll your child/children or have any questions, please feel free to call the Director, Megan Rahn, at (402) 287-1006 or send an email to .

Please visit our Facebook Page at Wakefieldhumptydumpty91 to see all the fun activities we have done throughout the year.  You can read up on the theme for the week and what activities each program will be working on.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.

Humpty Dumpty started to fall,

But all the children and staff who were there

Caught him and helped him build a daycare!

Humpty Dumpty is happy now.

He’s so glad we showed him how

All of the children and all of the staff

Could  gather here to love, learn and laugh!
