Pre-Kindergarten

In CFBISD, we offer two full day Pre-K options. We have free Pre-K for students who qualify under the state guidelines (see qualification information below) and we offer tuition-based Pre-K for families who don’t qualify for free through a very affordable rate.

Caring, Certified Teachers for Your Child

Taught by our caring, certified educators, students are involved in thematic units that engage learners through developmentally appropriate activities. Mathematics, science, social studies and language arts are integrated to provide students with real life opportunities to read, write, and problem solve. We also support the socio-emotional learning of students so they can build strong healthy relationships with their peers and friends.

** The Pre-Kindergarten program in CFBISD is for students that are 4 years old on or before September 1.
