Prekindergarten can be one of a child’s most exciting years in school. Four-year-olds are naturally curious and eager to learn. Prekindergarteners leave the DISD program with a love of learning and the skills they need to be successful students and citizens.

    Every DISD prekindergarten class has a certified teacher to provide enriching experiences for the children.

    Younger children learn through play and hands-on activities. High priorities are learning about the alphabet, expanding vocabulary, developing awareness of language sounds (phonological awareness) and the building of social/emotional skills.

    Students who speak languages other than English are served by a teacher of English as a Second Language. After qualifying, these students attend Rann Elementary. Other students who qualify (see criteria) will attend Pre-K at Young Elementary.
