UCP Preschool: Northwest Missouri’s Only Intentionally Integrated Program
Research indicates that young children with disabilities are more likely to reach developmental goals sooner while interacting with typically developing peers. UCP Preschool is an intentionally integrated community preschool, where children with and without disabilities play and learn together.
UCP has been serving children since our founding more than 40 years ago, and our preschool staff knows child development! Small student/teacher ratios allow our exceptional staff opportunities to provide more individualized attention than children can receive in larger preschools. Our teachers also use quality and effective curriculum (Project Construct Curriculum) approved by the state of Missouri to ensure that children who attend UCP Preschool will be as prepared as possible for kindergarten.
The UCP Preschool serves children ages 2 to 5 years old, Monday through Thursday, with a morning session (8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.) and an afternoon session (12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.) Students may choose two days a week or four days a week. Speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy are offered on-site for children who qualify.

Research indicates children learn just as well, if not better, in integrated environments like UCP’s Preschool, where children with and without disabilities learn and grow together.
