Pre-Kindergartener's are energetic and imaginative! They explode with self-confidence and love trying new adventures. Children are invited to explore and experiment the many activity centers available in the open area at Today's Children of Wildwood.
Each child in Pre-K will have a cubby and parent pocket assigned to them. Cubbies will hold artwork, clothing, bags, bedding, and other personal items.
Our Pre-K program provides a developmentally appropriate learning environment that correlates with Missouri 's Pre-K standards.
We believe that with time, support, and a loving atmosphere all children
can develop a love for learning!

As a former fifth grade teacher, I realize the importance of developing a curriculum that will encourage children to develop a love of learning. I believe all children should be involved in an environment that motivates and encourages them to learn.
When young children are involved in an active, hands-on learning environment, they are enthusiastic and motivated. A constructivist classroom allows children to gather information through their senses and make hypotheses, test predictions, and discuss results. This is how children gain knowledge.
Developed by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Project Construct is a learner-centered curriculum and an approach to teaching for preschool, primary, and elementary grades. The Project Construct curriculum is closely linked to both state and national standards, and is shaped by the belief that student success depends on both a solid foundation of content knowledge and the ability to apply it to real problems and new situations.
The theme based curriculum at Today’s Children of Wildwood will provide the foundation for the Project Construct approach to learning. Over the next several months, I will be attending a series of training classes to assist me in implementing the newest learning practices developed to help children reach Missouri’s academic standards. The staff at Today’s Children of Wildwood will be involved in numerous training opportunities to enable them to provide an engaging environment that will prepare your child for Kindergarten.
We are excited about the implementation of the Project Construct Curriculum at Today’s Children of Wildwood, and believe that with your support, your child will be prepared for the next level of learning.
