The Children's School at Stephens College is a premiere private pre-K and multi-age elementary school in Columbia, Missouri.

Children's education should not be one size fits all. We believe children should have the space to learn in an environment that encourages them to learn, dream, and do.

Our Vision

The Children’s School at Stephens College is a constructivist, holistic-based, arts-integrated laboratory school community. It is comprised of children, families, faculty and Stephens College students. Collaboration with the college and community provides the opportunity for many educational experiences.


We Offer Summer Camps! 



Plenty of schools can say they have low teacher-student ratios and things like that, but what makes CSSC so different is the overall attitude of allowing kids to be their unique selves."
