Early Childhood Learning Center Pre-K Program

PreKinder Child
 
McAllen ISD believes in the value of early childhood education.  Whether it is through amazing Pre-K programming on our elementary school campuses or through a community partnership, we strive to provide high quality Pre-K education for all children.
 
The Early Childhood Learning Center Pre-K Program is a unique opportunity for families to take advantage of a fully certified Pre-K teacher in the smaller setting of a childcare center.  This means students are enrolled at both the Early Childhood Learning Center and McAllen ISD.
 
Program Eligibility:
To be eligible for the Early Childhood Learning Center Pre-K Program, students must meet the State of Texas Pre-K Eligibility criteria.  Criteria can be found HERE
 
Registration Process:
  1. Parents should first enroll their child in a participating Early Childhood Learning Center.  All tuition policies for the Early Childhood Learning Center apply.  Please direct all inquiries regarding cost directly to the center.
