Guide to Childcare & Schools in and around Dallas

0

Disclosure :: We are frequently asked about early childhood programs and recommendations for child care, preschools and schools in Dallas and understand that picking a school or child care center that fits your child’s and your family’s needs can be an overwhelming task. We are thrilled to provide this guide resource, brought to you by our many sponsors! Thank you to those that participated in this guide.

As a new mom, making that decision to enroll your child into their first “away” program can be overwhelming, stressful, and just plain hard — especially in DFW!

If you’re new to the game, you may not be aware that you have a LOT of options depending on your needs, child’s age, and the goals you have for your child’s education. There’s private childcare, daycares, Mother’s Day Out, preschools, transitional Kindergartens. You can choose between tradition, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Co-ops, or even homeschool.

Then, once you’ve done your research and made your decision, the wait begins. That’s right — the wait! MANY daycares, preschools, and private programs begin registering for the following year a year in advance. Even as this is being published, schools are hosting open houses for the 2020-2021 school year.  We’ve written several posts (see below!) that can help you navigate through the enrollment process, but the most important part is making that initial decision. Where should I send my child? 

This is where we want to help!

Dallas Moms has a pulse in many communities across the Dallas Metroplex. We’ve compiled a list of featured programs and schools and personal recommendations to help you get started on your search! We can’t review them all, so we’ve included a small directory at the bottom of this post with local schools by area to help you continue your research a little further.

Have a question about a school?? Leave a note in the comments and allow other moms to help! We hope this post will be our communities ULTIMATE guide to childcare, preschool, and private schools.

The Primrose-exclusive approach, called Balanced Learning, balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion. The Balanced Learning approach is more than a curriculum. Daily classroom experiences; classroom equipment, materials, books and toys; training; assessment and school-home connection resources are all intentionally aligned to engage children in developmentally-appropriate learning. On the surface children simply have fun and engage in purposeful play, but underneath is a comprehensive and integrated approach that provides an unparalleled early learning experience.”
