Our wonderful staff consists of a certified or degreed lead teacher and teacher assistant in each of our classrooms.
We work closely with the Wentzville School District and St. Theodore School to align our curriculum to be consistent with theirs. We have Parents As Teachers screenings each year and closely monitor each child's progression.
Children are our passion! First and foremost, we are all children of God and our mission is to keep God as the center of everything we do from playing and interacting to exploring and learning.
