Women of Washington Iowa Endowment (W.O.W.I.E.) voted to gift the estimated price of $850,000 for the new child care center to be built at Stewart Elementary. W.O.W.I.E. is responsible for the former YWCA endowment. This fund focuses on empowering women and supporting children, stressing the need for child care.

Superintendent, Mike Jorgensen, feels that this will open opportunities to partner with an established child care program, "ideally forming a partnership with the YMCA." The partnering organization would be offered a very reasonable lease agreement for the new child care center, and have the close partnership of the school. While this is all just at starting point, there is promise for good things to come. "We are really appreciative of the WOWIE group for doing this for the school district," said Jorgensen.
