The mission of Great Beginnings is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where a lifelong love of  learning begins. It is the goal of our program to provide support to your child and family early in your child’s life to promote his or her development. Our dedicated staff includes certified Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education teachers, experienced paraprofessionals, and qualified support professionals who prepare a variety of daily activities which encourage communication, social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth in each child, fostering independence and self-esteem.

We have two locations: Great Beginnings at the District Education Center in Platte City, and Great Beginnings at Barry School in the southern attendance area of our District. Both locations offer Early Childhood Special Education and a limited Peer Program; additionally, Great Beginnings at the District Education Center offers a Preschool Tuition. Our focus on early intervention in a high quality learning environment increases the likelihood for school success.
