Peggy L. Taylor Early Learning Center (ELC)

  • The ELC houses our tuition-based preschool and the Title I program. Title classes are smaller and provide educational intervention to those students who qualify based on their DIAL scores. During DIAL testing, students may have indicators that they need a little extra help in multiple areas. Due to federal funding, Title classes are offered free to families who qualify. All classes work towards the same grade card expectations.

    The ELC also offers free tuition for families meeting income guidelines. Qualifying students are placed in our 5-day afternoon tuition-based classrooms, but parents do not pay the tuition. Spaces are limited and are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The income guidelines are based on Missouri's Free and Reduced lunch program. To see if your child would be eligible, see the document below.

    If you believe you would qualify and would like the opportunity to be placed tuition-free, please let us know during the enrollment process and view the income guidelines here.
