4-Year-Old Pre-K Informational Presentation

Mesquite ISD elementary campuses offer full-day pre-K for 4-year-olds who live in our district or who are children of our employees. Our high-quality, highly engaging program will put your child on a path for school success. A fully certified teacher and one teaching assistant will guide each classroom. They’ll teach no more than 22 students—prospective friends—per class.

What exciting things are in store for your child? He or she is sure to grow academically surrounded by books and innovative learning tools. We’ll work hard to build your child’s letter and number recognition skills and ever-important vocabulary, among so much more. Our classrooms will transform based on units of study, and that captivates students and makes learning even more fun. For example, during a unit on animals, you may find the classroom mirroring a veterinarian office.

At full-day pre-K, their social skills will develop, too. Our teaching will cover how to take turns, model manners and be a good team member. Students will learn how to understand what they are feeling and how to express emotions in positive ways. In the end, these girls and boys will become kindergarten-ready!

What’s more, parents and family members will get in on the learning fun, too. We’ll do our best to show you how to extend your child’s academic and social development even more at home!
