The Mehlville Early Childhood Preschool Program offers an integrated curriculum in five core content ares: Personal and Social Development, Language and Literacy, Mathematical Thinking, Scientific Thinking and Physical Development.  This curriculum is aligned to the Missouri Early Learning Standards and is approved by the district's Board of Education.  The curriculum is implemented using a constructivist approach, which means that children actively construct their own knowledge and values as a result of interactions with the physical and social worlds.  Mehlville's Early Childhood Preschool Program is an "Inclusive Program." Inclusive classrooms are made up of children with disabilities and children without disabilities. This opportunity enhances the learning skill development of children with disabilities as well as provides invaluable lessons for children without disabilities.
