Mission Statement

The teachers, parent educators, principal and other professional associated with the Early Childhood Program will work together in a team effort approach to provide coordinated services that best meet the diverse needs of young children and their families.

By providing support and knowledge of child development to families, parents become more confident and informed observers and facilitators or their children's development. The preschool programs maximize opportunities for success in the areas of language, cognitive, self-help, motor and personal-social skills.


  • The HMC-1 school district is currently enrolling ALL four year old children in the preschool program. If you have a NEW preschooler; please bring all enrollment paperwork to Baptiste between 8:30 am and 11:00 am and 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm to check residency and then call 816-316-8500. If you have a returning preschooler, with no address changes, please call 816-316-8500. Enrollments will take place between 9 am and 11 am and 1 pm and 2 pm throughout the week.
    Your child MUST BE 4 by July 31, 2014 to be age eligible to attend preschool.
