About Show-Me Child Care

Mission Statement

Show-Me Child Care Center’s (SMCCC) goal is to support and supplement the family unit. We focus on the needs of each child as an individual. Our task is to guide the child using Conscious Discipline and structure the environment so that each child will develop to his/her potential. The staff at SMCCC will accept the responsibility of providing a safe and secure environment. Play is the main avenue in which children learn. Our goal is to integrate learning and playing by guiding, directing and encouraging positive intellectual, social, and physical development.
