  • Open the door to a stimulating environment where your child learns to love learning. Your child may be eligible to attend for free; others pay a tuition that may be less than your daycare.

    Success Starts Now!

    Your four-year-old child’s brain has been making 1,000,000 connections every second since birth. The sights, sounds, curiosity, and physical activity that children experience before the age of five contributes to 90% of a child’s brain development.

    Pre-Kindergarten is where your child discovers and practices the social, emotional, and academic skills needed to succeed in the coming grades.

    You will find Pre-Kindergarten classes at 33 North East ISD elementary schools, including the original at the Pre-K Academy at West Avenue.  As you read through these pages you will recognize that creativity, imagination, and curiosity is the right combination for your enthusiastic and curious four-year-old.  

Two Ways to Participate in Pre-K at NEISD

Tuition-Based

If your child is a non-qualifying student, they are eligible to attend Pre-K at one of our designated campuses as a tuition student.

Qualification-Based

A qualifying student is a child who meets at least one of the Texas Pre-K qualifying criteria, and is eligible for free Pre-K.
