Before and after School Program

Summer School Age Program

The purpose of the Center is to provide a comprehensive, high quality child development program for preschool and school-age children, while their parents pursue educational and employment goals.

The Center also serves as a laboratory setting for students enrolled in early childhood or other curricula related to the care and education of young children. These students are provided an opportunity to observe and interact with young children in a quality program as part of their coursework.

We believe...

...that each child should be treated as an individual and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect; that each child has unique qualities and capacities which enrich our society; that every child's needs and interests must be honored; that being allowed choices instills competence and independence.

...that parents deserve the assurance that their children are safe, nurtured and acknowledged while in our care; that families should feel a sense of trust and connection toward teachers and staff; that educators provide the children intellectual stimulation in a positive, challenging environment.

...that a strong home/school relationship is essential and basic to the child's education, and we welcome and encourage parent involvement.

Lead teachers are formally trained in Project Construct, a curriculum based on the theory that children learn most readily when they are actively involved in experiences that are meaningful to them. Project Construct, the Creative Curriculum, the Missouri Early Learning Standards and the Parents as Teachers curriculum provide teachers a framework for creating a learning environment in which children pursue their interests, act on their environment and reflect on their actions. By building upon what children already know, teachers foster dispositions toward learning that make all learning possible--curiosity, creativity, confidence and initiative.
