Early Childhood Education Program


    The Ferguson-Florissant School District is recognized nationally as a leader in the field of Early Education. For more than 35 years, the District, in partnership with the state of Missouri, has worked with Early Education experts to develop programs that have been adopted statewide and now serve as national models.

    Within the Ferguson-Florissant Early Education Program, it is our vision that all children will be successful learners who are caring, creative and confident.  Recognizing and understanding that parents are a child's first teacher, we believe that developing positive partnerships between home and school is crucial to ensuring children gain the confidence and skills needed to be successful learners in preschool and throughout K-12.   
    The Ferguson-Florissant Early Education Program is dedicated to partnering with families to inspire a love of learning in all children.
