EarlystART (formerly United Inner City Services) is a multi-service, community-based agency serving Kansas City, Missouri since 1967. Over the years, EarlystART has addressed the issues of the urban core employment, emergency assistance, housing, violence intervention, early childhood education and youth services. EarlystART serves as a neighborhood anchor, providing a safe, warm, inviting site for a variety of social services, early education programs, community arts programs, and neighborhood outreach. We operate three early childhood education centers and offer a distinctive, creative curriculum and a commitment to a highly trained faculty. UICS-St. Mark Center, UICS-Metro Center, and UICS-North Center function as the heart and signature outreach of UICS and are recognized as Kansas City’s leading early learning programs. Our Centers serve nearly 300 infants and toddlers, and pre-k students as well as their families and caregivers. The Arts are an integral component at UICS. We encourage individuality and support exploration. We inspire students to march to their own beats and do what works for them. We cultivate open-mindedness and creativity in all that we do. UICS is distinguished for its arts-based curriculum which not only enhances students’ developmental progress, but also enriches their lives through exposure to arts and cultural experiences.
