Welcome to the De Soto Little Dragons Early Childhood Center!

The De Soto Early Childhood education program provides a special opportunity to open a door to a child’s future and a curriculum experience based on interests and individual needs. We believe children who are provided an enriched learning environment become empowered to make choices, contribute and learn based on their individual strengths. Early childhood education programs promote cognitive, social, physical and representational development. This early age is the most important period in the growth of a human being. The quality of early experiences lays the foundation for how children perceive themselves as engaged learners, as confident and competent individuals and as caring members of the community and the world. Through education children are able to build a strong foundation, which increases the likelihood that they will later become productive citizens.

Our Program at Little Dragons is a local community public school program under the administration of the De Soto #73 School District. We are a fully accredited program through the Missouri Accreditation of Programs for Children and Youth. Our program follows the Project Construct Curriculum and is closely aligned with the Missouri Early Learning Standards. We offer an inclusive preschool experience where typically developing children and children with special needs can grow and learn from each other.
