Iowa State University Extension and Outreach: Wapello County

Wapello County Extension, in partnership with Iowa State University, provides education and information to help the people of Wapello County become the best they can be. We believe in quality, access, diversity, and accountability. We are dedicated to engagement, entrepreneurship, and local presence. We welcome you to explore our website or stop by our office and see the many ways Extension can serve you.

The Nest Program is a free incentive based group parent education program. People are eligible for the program if they are prenatal until their children turn 5 years of age. Once you are enrolled in the program you receive points for attending weekly classes, medical appointments for your child, prenatal and postpartum visits, and participating in other community resources; such as WIC, Parent's As Teachers, MEICHV, and Early Access. We are grant funded through Early Childhood Iowa and Prevent Child Abuse. There is no cost to participants. We cover a variety of topics like prenatal care, child development, safety, parenting skills, nutrition and cooking, budgeting techniques and managing stress. We have onsite childcare available too!!!
