SC4 st. louis post-dispatch ST. CHARLES COUNTY POST Wednesday, September is, 1999 postnet.comcommunities jj) UCATI 0 ! B 0 Preschool By Aisha Sultan Of the St. Charles County Post Amanda Sauter, 4, wrapped herself around Ruby Baath's legs and refused to let go. "Come home with me," she begged. The soon-to-be-preschool owner hugged Amanda and said, "I'll be here to see you everyday. You can call me whenever you want." Ruby and Opie Baath plan to open the Kids "R" Kids Quality Learning Center in O'Fallon next month, fully equipped with the latest technology, but they say fancy gadgets won't replace personal bonds. Parents have enrolled more than 60 children so far to attend either the day-care or preschool program in the fall. One of the center's unique features is Internet cameras in each classroom that allow parents to monitor their children from personal computers, at home or work. But the Baaths say that's just one of a number of attractions with which they hope to lure parents. Appropriately enough, they discovered the franchise through an Internet search. The center is the first in Missouri of a national franchise based in Atlanta. About 90 other centers operate in nine other states and Puerto Rico. Each center requires at least a $1.5 million investment, said George Anderson, of the sales and support in Atlanta. That includes buying the franchise, the land, the building and the equipment. In addition to closed-circuit cameras in the rooms, each classroom is divided by tempered glass walls By Avis Ruebling Special to the St. Charles County Post St. Charles School District The junior varsity cheerleading squad at St Charles West High School won first place in August in regional competition at Linden-wood University.

She encourages parents to also get involved in the organization because students benefit immensely when families read together. "A lot of young parents know that it benefits students to read to them when they're young. As they get older, parents have a tendency to stop doing that," she said. Buehler said parents should listen to children read when they get older or share the literature they read. "It's an opportunity for families to have meaningful dialogue about Put It On ble composite score on the ACT assessment test.
