Our school is open year-round, Monday through Friday from 7:00am - 6:00pm. From our full-time child-care and preschool programs, to our year-round programs for school-aged children, we have a program for your family and child to love and grow with.
Preston Kiddie Kollege Programs include everything your child needs to learn and grow.
Our programs are tailored to each age group, and daily schedules for each program include:
Meals & Snacks
Beginning at age 12 months, all PKK programs include breakfast, lunch, and two snacks daily. Our school's menu features a variety of tasty meals and fruits & vegetables that kids actually look forward to. Our PKK parents love to know that their kids are eating well while away from home.
With video camera access to your child's classroom, outdoor playground, and common areas like our indoor gym, you are able to check in on your child at any moment in the day, from any location. Camera access is password protected, regularly updated, and highly secure - only PKK families can gain access to view our school's cameras.
All research points towards the importance of outdoor play during a child's early years. Starting with our infant program all the way through school age camps, time is built into each day to make sure time is spent outdoors on our giant, wrap-around-the-building playground! (Weather permitting, of course).
Texas weather can make the outdoors not very play-friendly for many days, or sometimes weeks, at a time. Our school has a spacious indoor gym that children of all ages love to take advantage of on hot, cold, or rainy days!
Digital Daily Sheets
PKK's classroom-specific digitally delivered daily sheets are your gateway into the most important information from your child's day. Daily sheets for younger classrooms include detailed information from feeding and potty times throughout the day, while older classrooms also include items such as topics learned and specific observed behaviors.
Our monthly themed curriculum is always developed in-house by our teachers to maximize creative activities and ensure that the material covered is relevant to each classroom and the individual students in that classroom. Our teachers plan for dress up days, art and cooking projects, science experiments, and daily circle time, worksheet, and activity learning to keep their classroom engaging and exciting.
Arts & Crafts
All PKK classroom schedules have time built in each day for arts and crafts. Art projects are always the students' work - not the teacher's. Seasonal crafts made at school always go home to be enjoyed by the whole family.
Music & Movement
Our classrooms incorporate music throughout the day's activities, but also designate time for just listening to music and moving around! Dancing to music helps children develop rhythm and finetune gross motor skills, all while having a blast.
Language & Literacy
Early exposure to phonics makes the world of difference in ensuring that your child eases into literacy learning. Beginning at age 12 months, our teachers routinely practice naming lowercase and uppercase letters of the alphabet, and making the sounds that each letter makes. Older age groups then begin connecting the sound each letter makes with what it looks like to sound out common sight words... all before Kindergarten!
Beginning at age 12 months, PKK kids are introduced to numbers and counting on a daily basis. Our older preschool classrooms emphasize numerical understanding and prepare students for Kindergarten through early learning of addition and subtraction.
Our classroom teachers cover basic Spanish vocabulary and play Spanish children's songs for the students starting at age 12 months. By setting early groundwork for second language learning, completely new regions of children's brains are activated during development.
Science & History
Oftentimes, subjects like science and history are neglected in early childhood education for being "too complicated for kids". However, by introducing science experiments and important historical figures to children, their interest in these subjects are piqued and motivate them to learn as much as they can about the world.

Will my child always be with children of the same age?
Your child will be in a classroom with children of approximately the same age, usually within a maximum of 3 months for our younger classrooms, and a maximum of 12 months for our older classrooms. During the first hour and last hour we are open each day, students are sometimes combined with other kids that are at most 18 months older or younger than they are.
Are meals, camera access, and curriculum included in tuition?
Absolutely! Camera access, curriculum, breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack are all included in tuition.
What is the daily schedule like?
The daily schedule is dependent on your child's program. However, each schedule includes designated time for meals, care routines, nap time, and all activities including outdoor play twice daily (our classrooms get to play in our indoor gym, if the Texas weather is less than optimal!)
How do I keep track of my child's development & progress?
Our entire staff is trained and knowledgeable about early childhood development and constantly monitor student progress, and report any concerns to our PKK parents. We also formally evaluate milestones on a bi-annual basis starting at age 2.
Are you able to accommodate for food allergies and cultural preferences?
Yes, we are able to accommodate our menu for many food allergies and cultural preferences.
What curriculum do you follow?
Our monthly themed curriculum is always developed in-house by our teachers to maximize creative activities and ensure that the material covered is relevant to each classroom and the individual students in that classroom.
How will I know how my child was and what they learned during each school day?
You will receive a digital daily sheet at the end of each day letting you know about your child's day. Daily sheets for younger classrooms include detailed information from feeding and potty times throughout the day, while older classrooms also include items such as topics learned and specific observed behaviors.
