Brookside Day School

Brookside Day School was founded in 1956 serving children preschool 6th grades and has operated in the same general format since its inception.
The school offered the earliest extended-care programs in Kansas City, MO. Brookside is noted for high quality academic programs in addition to excellent childcare services.
Brookside is dedicated to serving the educational and extended care needs of the children and families of the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan area.
Brookside became a charter school in August 2002. Brookside is an elementary school, serving classes kindergarten through seventh grade.
Brookside is sponsored by the University of Missouri-Kansas City and is a member of the Basic School Network.
The teachers are trained in the Basic School concepts, and the faculty works hard to ensure Brookside is an effective school.
The Brookside Day School strives to meet the physical, emotional, and educational needs of children by providing a rich, well-rounded life experience at school during the academic day and during our before and after care programs.
We hold fast to our belief that a complete educational experience places equal emphasis on the academic and the aesthetics provided in a multicultural setting with a strong sense of community.
We further believe that, in order to provide a complete educational experience, the values in the home honesty, integrity, and strength of character must also be taught and modeled by all members of our school community.
