Meet our Family!

     We surround our children with happy, loving staff members that make a higher level of learning a natural part of each day! 


     Our teachers take pride in establishing long-lasting and caring relationships with each child and family while applying their degrees and experience in early childhood education. Our enthusiastic administrators are always there to support the EC's mission of providing the best quality education in an environment of love and learning. 

Our Owner

"What makes The Elegant Child unique is the warmth you feel when you walk in the door. Families feel like they are leaving their child with family, but know our NAEYC and Missouri accreditation means they will receive the highest level of education available. All my children have attended our school and now my grandchildren are here... it has to be the best!"
- Debbie Rowland, Owner

Our Director

"As the director, I feel very privileged and honored to be a part of an educational facility where the philosophy encompasses a home away from home feeling for the children. Debbie and I are on-site every day and our door is always open to parents and staff."
- Kathy Wolfe, Director

Cooking and Spanish- "I have worked for the EC since 2001 and have loved going to work every morning to teach Spanish and cooking class. It's wonderful to see how my 2-year-old students understand Spanish when I teach cooking. I love how clearly they count their numbers, colors, parts of the body, and much more! My heart is at The Elegant Child because it's my home away from home."
