About Learning Communities Project (LCP) - formerly MOT

The Learning Communities Project is a component of the Missouri Preschool Program that offers ongoing professional development to Missouri preschools and early learning centers, including recipients of Missouri Preschool Program (MPP) grants and Title 1. This professional-development program includes on-site technical assistance for new MPP classrooms and regional professional-development meetings for all MPP grantees at no charge, and these meetings also are provided to all other early learning programs at a minimal cost. The goal of the Learning Communities Project is to support teachers and teaching assistants in providing high-quality early childhood care and education, whether they are implementing High/Scope, Creative Curriculum, Project Construct, or the Emerging Language and Literacy Curriculum.
