Green Meadows Preschool has been Columbia, Missouri’s premier early childhood educational center for over 30 years.

We provide fundamentally-structured child care and education for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years; we also provide after-school programs for school-aged children.  We are not a chain or franchise supervised from afar; we are warm and welcoming, with a family-oriented atmosphere, a professionally-educated staff, and our track record spans decades.

We Co-Educate With You

Educating your child is a mutual endeavor shared between you and our staff. This is a partnership to co-educate your child with a needed emphasis upon his/her individuality. The task is not just getting beyond the present. Rather, the focus is to presently set a principled, thoughtful foundation for expression, and a basis of language and literacy skills. This elicits in your child a familiarity with future education, balanced understandings, and a basis for the potential of a lifetime filled with achievement.

Warm, Safe, Respectful & Loving.

Our warm, safe, respectful, and loving environment is just what we would hope for our own children and we want to attract parents seeking the same. We strive to identify and make the most of your child's: "teachable moments" during the moments these windows open and as they present themselves. Our curricula is developed and delivered by caring teachers to emphasize structure, patience, listening, speaking, reading, independence, problem solving, peer-play, cooperation, curiosity, decision-making, creativity, boundaries, fun, and attention.

Stop By Anytime!

Feel free to stop by with or without an appointment to decide if we're the right fit for your child's early education and care. We are situated in a quiet Columbia neighborhood located at 1000 W. Green Meadows Rd. in Columbia, Missouri 65203.
