About Us

     Started back in 1992 as the ideal model for their own children, Chip and Debbie Rowland wanted to create an atmosphere of learning that is second to none. We proudly hold National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Accreditation and Missouri Accreditation. What this means is that our teachers hold higher levels of credentials and our curriculum is of the highest quality.


     We boast ideal student-to-teacher ratios, contracted and enthusiastic teachers, and long-standing academic excellence. Beginning at infancy, a strong theme-based curriculum is carried forth by degreed and experienced teachers. We provide a campus-wide premiere curriculum enhanced by special classes such as

Spanish, Cooking, Physical Education, Music, and Outdoor Classroom.


     Our three-building campus is located at the neighborly intersection of Clayton and Strecker Roads.  Our campus boasts a music room, library, two gymnasiums, a children’s cooking kitchen, six developmentally appropriate playgrounds, a soccer field, and, last but not least, our very own Splash Pad!
