    About Us

    The ECSE program serves children three years to five years of age (not Kindergarten eligible). We have seven integrated classrooms which are taught by a certified Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. Our program implements the Emerging Language and Literacy Curriculum (ELLC). In our classrooms, children experience a wonderful early childhood opportunity. Our daily schedule allows for a language-enriched circle time, shared storybook reading, teacher-directed phonological awareness activities, music and movement, learning centers, and recess. Our focus is developing each child's language skills, social/emotional skills, adaptive behavior skills, fine/gross motor skills, and cognitive skills to prepare him/her for Kindergarten. If you are interested in participating in our program, you must schedule a FREE screening with Carthage R-9 Parents As Teachers program. Please call (417) 359-7012 to schedule your screening.
