Learning Ladder has been in operation since 1971. We are an outreach program of First United Methodist Church as a nonprofit preschool. We are are a licensed preschool through the Missouri Department of Health Bureau of Childcare.
Our success is due, in part to the support we receive from parents. We appreciate you telling your friends about our program. If you know someone who may be interested in enrolling their child/ren, please tell them to call or stop by during preschool hours.

An immunization form is needed for each student. All health forms and immunization records must have a doctor signature/office stamp. This is required by the State of Missouri. The State now requires that all children have Hepatitis B and the chickenpox vaccines. Learning Ladder does not accept students who are not immunized.
Immunizations are required at enrollment. Signature from your doctor stating that your child is in good health and able to attend preschool is required within 30 days of starting class.
In addition to the classroom time spent achieving goals, the children participate in Huff-N-Puff (physical education time), Music, and Art. We also have playground time, special events (see Highlights), and several fun visitors during the year.
