Heartland Christian Daycare/Preschool has been providing Christian education to children ages 2 1/2 – 5 years old since 1985.  Heartland Christian Daycare/Preschool was originally incorporated as the Independent Christian Academy of the Northland (ICAN for short) and was located in Gladstone, MO.  In the spring of 2005 the daycare/preschool moved to its current location on Prairie View Road just off I-29 and 64th Street in the Northland of Kansas City.  In the summer of 2007, ICAN changed to its current name.  The daycare/preschool is overseen by a Board which consists of members of the Heartland Church of Christ.
