About Us

Bayless Early Childhood Center is Licensed and Accredited by the State of Missouri.  We enroll students ages three-six years in our tuition-based program and ages three-five through IEP services with Special School District. We serve students from birth to age five through our free Parents as Teachers Program.

​Bayless Early Childhood Center uses Project Construct, a curriculum framework approved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and Conscious Discipline.  Through a variety of group and individual experiences, we strive to empower each child to think for oneself, decide between right and wrong, solve realistic problems, become critical thinkers and creative problem-solvers, develop cooperative and collaborative skills, and develop a love of learning.  Student success depends both on a solid foundation of content knowledge and the ability to apply it to real problems and new situations. Children participate in and explore an array of learning opportunities revolving around their interests and developmental levels through play and exploration.
