• Welcome to Preschool!

    We are excited to welcome you and your preschool learners as they start their educational journey in the Hickman Mills C-1 School District. This is a big step for your child and for you as parents/guardians.

    HMC-1 is proud to offer a full-day, five-day-a-week preschool program. The program follows a comprehensive curriculum designed to make learning fun while building a solid foundation for your child’s future. As your family prepares for this exciting step, you may have questions. The first step to preparing your child for preschool is to schedule a screening.


    Who is eligible for screening?

    Children must be born on or before July 31, 2021, and residents of the Hickman Mills C-1 Schools district to participate in the screening. If your child is currently enrolled in our district preschool, no screening is required.

    Preschool is for any child who resides within our district. The child must be age four (4) on or before July 31, 2024. Some students who meet a developmental delay may be eligible for preschool at age three (3); eligibility is identified during the screenings.

Parents as Teachers

  • Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a parent-education program offered in Missouri by Hickman Mills School District, serving families who are expecting a child or have children under the age of kindergarten. A trained parent educator provides. This evidence-based early childhood program is designed to offer regularly scheduled family personal visits, annual developmental screenings, monthly group connections and access to a network of resources. Together, these four components of PAT support school readiness and provide families, schools and communities with the guidance they need to ensure children are able to reach their full potential.

    Parents as Teachers is a fantastic program! Parents of all ages and "skill level" can benefit from parent education!"

    We really enjoy our educator. She's helpful and provides support when needed."
