The entrance to our school remains locked at all times. A member of our leadership team will personally open the door for our families so we are physically available for every person who enters our building. We also have a doorbell in case the person at the desk has stepped away. Our child pick-up policies are strictly enforced, and all exterior doors remain locked at all times. There are security cameras around the perimeter of our school and on our playgrounds that can be viewed from the front office.
What Sets Us Apart
Meals and Nutrition
We believe that maintaining healthy mealtime habits at a young age can lead to lifelong benefits, and working to create healthy meals kids enjoy is one way to teach children about good nutrition! Our school creates weekly menus that exceed the nutritional guidelines set forth by the state of Missouri. These menus include the freshest ingredients and incorporate organic, homemade dishes prepared fresh in our kitchen.
Our Spanish teacher holds classes twice per week for our children ages 3 and up. She goes into each classroom and immerses the children in a 20 minute class where they sing songs, read books, play games, and learn new Spanish words and phrases. You will also receive a bi-annual Spanish Newsletter from the teacher! Spanish classes are included in the regular weekly tuition.
Providing the opportunity for children to run and get their energy out each day is so important! It is for this reason that we have an indoor play space that allows the children to be able to run, climb, and participate in gross motor activities even when the weather outside does not allow for outdoor play time.
Our little library has hundreds of age-appropriate books for our teachers and children to choose from each day, as well as the perfect space to have a special story time. We participate in the Scholastic Book Orders and even have a Scholastic Book Fair every year! Providing a literacy rich environment sets the stage for a lifetime of a love of reading and learning.
