Teachers

Each of our classrooms have a full time teacher on staff with a bachelor’s degree in an education-related field, and most of their co-teachers have their associate’s in education. Teachers help children reach development milestones using the curricular framework known as Project Construct, of which was developed by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in 1986 and is designed to be used with children birth through age seven. All Child Care Center staff have received first aid training and are certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Safety

Your child’s safety is our number-one concern. The center is equipped with a top-of-the-line security system. There are cameras around the perimeter and in all of the rooms in the building (for reference and monitoring purposes only, not for parent log-in). All access doors are locked 24/7 and only a parent code, Child Care staff badge, or St. Anthony’s security officers can open it unless buzzed in by the front office. Anyone picking up a child who is not a parent will have his or her ID checked in the front office with the child’s profile to assure permission for pickup before being allowed back to the child’s classroom.
