Why Choose the Pre-K Academy?

  • Choosing a full day Pre-K program is a big decision.

    The NEISD Tradition of Excellence will continue at the Pre-K Academy as we provide a high-quality Pre-K program through an evidence-based curriculum that introduces social, emotional and academic skills through research-based, developmentally appropriate teaching strategies. 

    Our teachers are certified in early childhood education and participate in on-going professional learning throughout the year. Our instructional assistants are also state certified and participate in professional learning each semester.

    Our classes are designed to support the Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines and promote the use of playful and purposeful classrooms.
