Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Welcome to Meramec Valley Early Learning. We are looking forward to working with your student and with your family.

Small children are naturally curious and eager to learn. Our goal is to develop those natural curiosities into foundations for life-long learning. We provide a safe, nurturing atmosphere where your child, through guided explorations, imagination, and self-discovery, can grow intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

Research shows that children who attend quality preschool programs have better language development, demonstrate secure attachments to adults and other children, and perform better academically in school.

The Meramec Valley School District offers parents the opportunity to enroll their children in an environment that is rich in developmentally appropriate learning experiences. We invite you to visit our facility or call the office for more information. Meramec Valley Early Learning is operated and located in a public school and is exempt from licensure. The Center follows the Meramec Valley R-III School District calendar. The Meramec Valley Early Learning Programs include:

  • Tuition-Based services for children ages 3-5
  • Title-I services for children ages 3-5 (students must qualify to attend)
  • Early Childhood Special Education for children ages 3-5 (students must qualify to attend)
  • Parents as Teachers Program for families with children from birth-age 5

The staff has planned developmentally appropriate activities for your child to enjoy and grow. We are anxious to begin a new year of self-discovery and exploration in a safe, child-centered environment. With families as partners, we feel your child will develop as an individual.

We encourage you to visit our programs often and promise to work closely with you to provide the best care possible for your child.
