Capital CDC & Kleberg Bank Finance Inch Worm Day Care Learning Center in Corpus Christi

Share this page:

Inch Worm Day Care Learning Center, founded in 2007 in Corpus Christi, Texas, is the second child care facility owned and operated by Maria Pedraza. The first location, a casualty of arson, did not stop Ms. Pedraza from fulfilling her dream of owning a day care & learning center to service the children of Corpus Christi.

In the face of adversity, Maria reached out to Capital CDC to help finance a new location for her business - a location which her business could continue to grow. Not only was she able to keep her business, her long-time employees were able to keep their jobs, and her students continued learning in the Inch Worm program.

The Inch Worm Learning Center cares for children from four weeks to five years old. This new facility will ensure these children receive quality education as well as a clean and engaging environment.

Inch Worm Day Care’s new facility is larger than her first location, enabling them to not only provide for more the children, but also create more jobs in Corpus Christi - the home of the 5th largest port in the nation and the eighth most populated city in Texas.
Capital CDC is excited for Inch Worm Day Care Learning Center’s success and thankful for Kleberg Bank’s partnership to get this project financed.
