The Pre-Kindergarten program in Grand Prairie ISD has been developed using the Texas Education Agency’s Pre-Kindergarten guidelines and early education best practices, including Dual Language at a majority of our campuses.  Our program focuses on providing a rigorous environment that helps to address the developmental needs, social needs and academic content needed to ensure that our students acquire the readiness skills essential for them to be successful.   
The Pre-Kindergarten guidelines developed by the Texas Education Agency in Language and Early Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Physical Development, Health and Safety, Social Development and Technology Applications are educational objectives within the program.  Our focus is bringing families together in an educational community that helps to provide a rich environment in which students can develop and reach their potential.  We intentionally develop strong relationships with students, their families and our community. This environment coupled with our rigorous instructional program, provides a setting where students thrive.
