The Early Childhood Center is operated by St. John LaLande Catholic Church and is incorporated under the auspices of the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City – St. Joseph. The Early Childhood Center provides childcare for children six weeks through Pre-Kindergarten age. Enrollment is open to any child in this age range regardless of race, color, creed or religion.
