The Brentwood School District Early Childhood Center offers a developmental/constructivist program to meet the educational needs of children ages two years to kindergarten. We accept enrollment for Brentwood School District residents or employees.

BSD Early Childhood Center utilizes the Project Construct curriculum that empowers children to do more than memorize and repeat selected information. This program is rooted in inquiry-based learning which offers open-ended experiences and encourages critical thinking. These skills build a strong foundation for future learning and academic success.

Our Philosophy

Our goal is to provide a strong educational program which guides children in their construction and quest for knowledge. BSD Early Childhood Center is a place where each child’s intellectual, language, fine and gross motor, social and emotional potentials are carefully cultivated and guided. Children, parents, and teachers are all a community of learners growing together in our relationships and knowledge. If you would like to learn more about our curriculum, please call us at (314) 262-8521.
