    Preschool at ACES!

    Avenue City Preschool


    • We offer Preschool for 3,4 and 5 year olds on M-W-F from 8:00am-11:00am with an all day option available until 5:45pm.


    • Did you know that you do not need to live in our school district to attend our Preschool?  However, first priority will be given to district patrons. We are taking applications beginning  February 1, 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year. Space is limited.


    Avenue City Preschool has many things to offer your child that you may not                                         find in other Preschools.

    1. We use the Pathways to Reading Phonics Program.
    2. There will be separate lessons for the 3 year olds and the 4 and 5 year olds so that we can meet their different developmental needs.
    3. We have a Smartboard in the classroom and technology is used often.
    4. There are many options for the length of time you want your child to be at Preschool.  You can pick what works best for your family. However, academics will be taught in the morning.
    5. Your child will have a certified Early Childhood Teacher that has been trained in the above programs and in the Project Construct Curriculum. The curriculum is aligned with the State of Missouri’s Early Childhood Standards.   http://dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/earlychild/Publications.html
    6. The number one goal of our Preschool is socialization and preparation for Kindergarten. This preparation also includes laying the foundations of reading, writing, math, and other areas of academics to help your child reach their fullest potential.
