Early Childhood Education Center
Empowering children to flourish in mind, body and spirit.
First Presbyterian Early Childhood Education Center adheres to a play-based, developmentally appropriate learning environment for our students. We believe play is the hard work of a child and aim to provide them with meaningful experiences. The staff at First Presbyterian Early Childhood Education Center is committed to our calling and proud to offer these learning practices in a loving and caring Christian environment.
We serve children ages six months of age (by September 1st) up to four-years old. Our class days are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Our school year begins in September and ends the middle of May.
Our curriculum is focused on the standards set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the Little Texans Big Futures Early Learning Guide for children ages 0-3 years old and the Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines for 4-year-old children. We pride ourselves on providing a hands-on learning environment with an emphasis on oral language and vocabulary development, pre-reading literacy skills, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, math, and science. Our purpose is to partner with families to develop and foster within each child's heart a lifelong love of learning.
Monthly tuition is $210 per child per month. We collect tuition through monthly withdraws by ACH (tuition is automatically taken from an account selected by you on a certain day each month). If you would like to pay tuition for the entire year or by semester (September-December and January-April), you can pay by check, cash or credit card.
A non-refundable registration fee of $100 per child will be charged at the time of registration and must be paid online.
A $50 supply fee per semester (September and January) per child will be paid at the beginning of each semester or at registration if enrolling after the semester has started.
Registration for the 2021-22 school year took place during the week of March 15-18, 2021.

Being on our wait list is the only way you will know if a spot becomes available for your child(ren) in the future.
