Fatima Preschool

Welcome to the Osage R-3 Early Childhood Center

The staff at OECC would like to welcome you to our center. The preschool is located along Highway 63 and is part of the Osage R-3 School District. We are licensed by the State of Missouri for children 3 – 6 years old on a year-round basis.

The preschool years are an exciting time of growth in the physical, social-emotional, and cognitive areas for your child. At OECC, we believe that every child is an individual and we are committed to bringing out the best in each child. We believe that children learn at their own pace, so activities are developed for a variety of skill levels.

Please feel free to stop by and visit our facility at anytime. You can also contact us for more information at heimerickst@fatimacomets.org or by calling 455-2375 ext. 211.
