A formal preschool curriculum might be just what your child needs before heading into the grade school years! Check out our listing of local preschools.
The College School
The College School engages children, ages 3 to 14, in a Reggio Emilia-inspired and Experiential curriculum that is playful, adventurous, and theme-based. From analyzing ecosystems and conducting experiments in the woods to becoming investigative journalists in local neighborhoods, students do more than learn in a traditional classroom setting. They become collaborators, risk-takers, and problem-solvers.
Little Sunshine's Preschool
New City School
Rohan Woods School
Rohan Woods School is small–by mission–just one class per age or grade level. Set in a family neighborhood in mid-county St. Louis, the school starts at age 2 (Early Childhood) and goes through 6th grade. With an 8:1 student/teacher ratio, faculty is able to focus on personalized instruction and project learning to ensure students positively embrace their challenging curriculum for future success, develop a love of learning, and practice the skills to problem solve. Each adult connected with the school community serves as a passionate conduit for teaching and discovering the qualities of a leader in each student. All of this, blended with project learning, Science, Technology and team development, help each child move from their Early Childhood program based on purposeful play, through their elementary and middle school to be a successful and engaged student in secondary school.
See all this for yourself. Set up a private tour. Since we have rolling admissions, we accept applications year-round, and your child can start mid-year if you’re moving into the St. Louis area or just moving to a new part of the area.
The Fulton School
The Fulton School is a small, independent, Montessori school for toddlers through 12th grade. They offer a strong academic environment where self-confidence, curiosity, kindness, and integrity are paramount.
As a school based on the Montessori philosophy, Fulton School educates the whole child, not just his/her brain, integrating social skills, character education, and emotional well-being with academics.
Curiosity, joy, and engagement are cornerstones of their toddler and preschool programs. Children have a natural desire for independence (which is intricately linked to self-confidence), so the classrooms are designed to allow each child to explore hands-on, meaningful work that both reaches the child at his/her current stage, but also encourages the child to stretch him/herself to the next level.
Located in Chesterfield just off Highway 40 on a beautiful nine-acre campus, The Fulton School boasts an environment where the teaching styles are refreshing and the children are engaged, accepted, and passionate about learning. Private tours are available year-round.
Based on the school’s belief that all children should have access to high-quality education, City Academy provides scholarship support to 100 percent of students.
Located in North St. Louis City, families from more than 40 different zip codes send their children ages 3 through 6th grade to City Academy to be taught by dedicated teachers with bold expectations that empower children to overcome barriers. Founded in 1999 out of Matthews-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club, the beautiful campus opened in 2004 and now includes a state-of-the-art early childhood center built in 2018.
City Academy offers small class sizes with a 7:1 student-to-teacher ratio and Spanish instruction for all ages.
