The Flance Early Learning Center has been constructed at 1908 O’Fallon in the Carr Square neighborhood.
The Center will provide a range of services including:
- A full-service demonstration kitchen for children and families to learn about healthy eating and cooking habits
- An adventure playground that encourages physical activity and creativity in play
- An in-house wellness suite to provide critical preventative services and developmental screenings
- A community education room that will host workshops on critical parenting topics for both parents and outside childcare providers
- Rooms designated for moms to nurse their babies
According to their website, the Flance Center seeks to become the first preschool/early learning center in Missouri and only the fourth worldwide to be certified under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Schools rating system.
