We know from research that the early years of a child's life have a tremendous impact on life outcomes. Here at the SM Early Childhood Education Center we take this very seriously. Instruction is based on the Kansas Early Learning Standards in order for each of our students to have success. It is individualized for each student and delivered in a play-based model. Our staff understands what is developmentally appropriate for children and designs learning opportunities that are fun and inviting for students. Our center is an encouraging and safe place for families and students to experience the joy of learning.
