    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
