Mary Margaret’s Daycare and Learning Center at Union Road is committed to providing quality childcare and preschool to your little one! We enroll children starting at 6 weeks through 12 years and are a Missouri state licensed preschool center that provides nutritious meals, snacks, one type of infant formula, baby food, and baby cereal at no extra cost. 

Our curriculum focuses on your child as a whole.  It includes social/emotional, physical, and cognitive development while in a nurturing environment.  We strive to foster the creativity of your child with learning through play with the goal of preparing younger children for Kindergarten.

We follow the Safe Sleep Policy for infants required by the Department of Health.  Our infant teachers work in tandem with the parents, following each parent’s plan and schedule for their child.  It is our goal to have open communication with the parents during this critical time of development.


Infants enjoy singing songs, tummy time, playing with friends, and lots of cuddles!  We have a full refrigerator and freezer to properly store breast milk as well.

Our toddlers are very busy here at Mary Margaret’s.  Our preschool curriculum starts in this classroom, and students love exploring paint, crayons, markers, playdough, and other materials for the first time!  They are also learning how to share and play with other children.

Our two year old classroom is focused on potty training while working on our curriculum.  They are learning pre-math skills, art, reading readiness, and music/movement.  Two can be a rough age for a child while learning how to be a “big kid” and figuring out how to exert their independence.  We use redirection and positive reinforcement in order to help the children during this time.

Preschool & Pre-K are the classrooms that prepare your child for Kindergarten.  We have circle time, story time, play time, and class time.  The teachers work on fine motor skills while the children learn to write their names.  The children also learn number and letter recognition and some even learn sight words!  

We offer a before and after school program for elementary school children.  It includes breakfast, snack, fun arts and crafts projects as well as physical activities to keep growing bodies healthy.  

Our company is committed to continuing education for our teachers and also participates in the TEACH MO Scholarship.  All teachers are required to pass a background check, physical, TB screening, Hep B immunization, and are CPR/first aid certified.

Please feel free to call and schedule an appointment to come in to visit our center.  We do have a wait list so enrollment in advance is recommended.  From infants to preschool, babies to big kids, We take pride in developing happy children in a safe and nurturing environment; giving them a lifetime love of learning. Come see us today!
