Program Goals & Objectives
1.Provide preschool students with high-quality, developmentally appropriate learning experiences designed to enhance kindergarten readiness.
2.Support parents in their role as a child’s first, and most important teacher by providing access to educational resources and information.
3.Provide highly qualified teachers trained in child development and a research based curriculum.
4.Ensure continuity and smooth transitions from home to early education and primary school.
Our learning environment is designed to provide students with a challenging, yet developmentally appropriate curriculum. The center has chosen to integrate the Missouri Early Childhood Standards into the state-approved Project Construct curriculum model. Through the active learning process, children will construct their own knowledge; learn how to make decisions and plans; seek and organize information. The role of the teacher is to guide students in their construction of knowledge – challenging them to make predictions, try new approaches, and solve their own problems. We are a quality program committed to excellence in our efforts to serve the preschool students of our community.
