Preschool Program (3-5 years old)

Our preschool program prepares young children with language, pre-literacy, and foundational knowledge that will help them acquire academic competence in later years. With these skills, our students do not only leave us prepared to enter kindergarten but are also equipped to succeed on the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI) published by NCS Pearson. Many schools use this test for admission, diagnostic evaluation, or program placement purposes.
The development of this program centered on Dr. Mel Levine's neurodevelopmental framework which consists of eight constructs that are essential for optimal learning: attention, language, memory, gross and fine motor skills, visual-spatial ordering, temporal-sequential ordering, social thinking, and higher-order thinking. We evaluate student competence in all of these areas and plan targeted interventions to remediate the identified deficits and promote adequate brain function.
Our curriculum has been designed with a combination of weekly themes, the integration of multiple-intelligences from "Project Spectrum: Early Learning Activities" by the collaborative work between Tufts University and Harvard University, and the STEM curriculum which promotes knowledge and competence in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. In addition, we offer enrichment activities like: culinary, arts and crafts, music, book club, and Spanish lessons from our adopted Spanish Champs Preschool curriculum.
Upon initial student evaluation, an intervention program is customized with most or all of the following components based on the identified needs of the child:
  • auditory processing skills
  • vsual processing skills
  • listening comprehension
  • oral language development
  • social-emotional development skills including the exploration of feelings, classroom rules, relationships with others, and following directions
  • gross and fine motor skills
  • visual-motor integration skills
  • sensory integration activities
  • literacy skills introductory for 3-year-olds (pre-print, letter-sound correspondence)
  • literacy skills advanced for 4-year-olds (letter-sound correspondence, phonological awareness, handwriting, name tracing and writing)
  • Listen, Think, and Remember curriculum to strengthen memory and attention (for 4-year-olds only)
  • Move, Play, and Learn curriculum to build brain-and-body connection
  • cognitive training for problem solving, attention and concentration, working memory, and processing speed skills
We offer this program in small teacher-student ratios at our Cypress/Fairfield location in order to promote ample intervention and practice opportunities. Class schedules are as follows:
3-year-old classes: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
4- and 5-year-old classes: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
If you are interested in one-on-one sessions, please visit our Early Childhood Intervention Program page for more information.
Our classes are small! They will fill up fast! Please contact us for more information.
The Preschool Program follows the same calendar as the Cy-Fair Independent School District.
Our weekly rates are $75 for two days and $95 for three with meals included. In addition, there is a $50-fee for materials to be paid at the beginning of each semester. Registration fee is $50.
This program does not require an initial evaluation of the students. We assess them in December, once they have grasped most of the concepts and skills taught in class, and those results help us adjust our instruction and plan specific interventions for the following semester. In May, the same evaluation is administered to the students in order to identify areas of growth and mastery. To meet our diagnostic purposes effectively, we use the Cognitive Assessment of Young Children (CAYC) and the Listening and Speaking sections of the Oral and Written Language Scales II (OWLS-II) for all of our students. In addition, we administer the Kindergarten Essential Skills Assessment (KESA) to our 4- and 5-year-olds in December and May. Each student evaluation has a cost of $50.
