About Seneca Early Childhood



The Seneca R-7 School District strives to fulfill the vision of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education that families, staff, and the community will work together to effectively meet the individual needs of young children with disabilities through a variety of early childhood special education services. These services will be family focused, developmentally appropriate, culturally responsive, community sensitive, and cost effective. Multiple resources will be used to enhance each child's future by assuring that trained staff and equitable early childhood special education services are available to children and families across the state.

Seneca Early Childhood is a free program for children ages three to five with developmental delays. The program also offers a limited number of openings in each classroom for integrated classroom peers. The teachers have early childhood special education certification and implement an early childhood curriculum that promotes early literacy through a variety of language rich activities. The daily schedule includes circle/music time, story/lesson time, snack, center time, recess and small group activities to encourage the development of cognitive skills, adaptive skills, social/emotional skills, speech/language skills and motor skills.

Free screenings and/or assessments will be conducted by the Seneca R-7 School District to determine eligibility for the program. To schedule a free screening, contact Carrie Givens, Parents As Teachers Coordinator, at 417-776-1204. We look forward to hearing from you!
