Research-Based Preschool with Full-Day Coverage

Blue House Preschool is a safe, nurturing, hands-on preschool program for ages 2–5. Our school day begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m., with optional childcare until 5:15 p.m. Our curriculum is built on proven best practices, and our faculty are highly qualified and incredibly dedicated! Blue House Preschool is a place for kids to explore the world (and themselves!) and build the foundation to become the best learners they can be.

Students per Teacher
Our teachers are supported by a team of support staff, keeping our student-teacher ratio exceptionally low. (Texas state average for toddlers is 10:1. Ours for same age is 4:1.)

Our class sizes range from 7 toddlers in PK Two to 15 kids in PK4. Lead teachers are supported by a team of staff, so every child gets the attention they need to thrive.

Outdoor Spaces
Preschool is about exploration and discovery! In addition to all the indoor spaces, our campus features five playgrounds, an athletic field, and a garden.

Teachers with a Master's
Our faculty are highly qualified and dedicated! Almost a third of our teachers (and more than half of our lead teachers) have advanced degrees.

It's normal for children to develop at different paces for different milestones, and we differentiate our instruction to teach to each child's strengths and struggles.
