Preschools in Henderson

 

When my oldest hit age three, I felt like I ran full speed into a wall labeled “what are you doing for preschool?” I obviously knew this decision would be coming, but I was not prepared for the stress and pressure associated with figuring it out. I didn’t realize that this decision about a tiny person would feel so big.

 

So I started researching. I made a spreadsheet. I investigated websites, made phone calls, took tours, requested information packets. Now that I’m typing this out, I’m realizing that I spent way more time on this than I did researching some of the colleges I applied to….

 

After compiling everything last year, I made my decision for our family. Then 2018 rolled around and I’m needing to make decisions all over again. It was pretty handy to have my spreadsheet already made. I wish someone had handed me all the basic info first time around, so that’s what I’m doing for YOU!

 

I wouldn’t recommend sending your kid to a preschool you haven’t thoroughly investigated on your own, but I’m hoping my list can start you in the right direction.  It’s likely you have some idea what type of program you’re looking for and what your price range is, so this will be an excellent starting point for you.

 

Some factors you may consider when choosing a preschool program:

  • Location: What is your distance limit? How much are you willing to drive? Do you have other children? Location will likely impact your preschool decision.

 

Find the closest preschools to you. Enter your email here to receive a link to a map of Henderson with each preschool/childcare center on this list.

 

 

 

  • Cost: Some of these options are free. Some of the preschools have annual tuition rates twice the amount of my total college education. Most are in between. The schools are arranged in order by tuition cost. Due to differences in days/hours of preschools, the cost per hour is not necessarily in order, but monthly tuition is ROUGHLY in order cheapest to most expensive.

 

I’ve updated the information as much as possible to be current for 2018, but every entry includes a link to a website so you can continue your research on your own.

 

PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS:

 

ACELERO LEARNING CENTER (HEAD START)

Tuition: Free 

Registration Fee: Free

PRESCHOOL AT PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Location: Throughout CCSD

Tuition: Free

Registration Fee: Free

Schedule: varies

Details: Many of the public elementary schools in CCSD have a preschool program for students with IEPs (“special needs”). Some of these preschools will also accept “typical peers,” or students without IEPs, depending on availability and the teacher. This works differently at every elementary school, so your best bet is to call the front office at the schools near you. You do not have to attend the elementary school you are zoned for pre-K. I called Bartlett and Kesterson this year and was told that they won’t make the decision on whether to have/how many typical peers until the school year starts. Estes Elementary will take your information throughout the year and put you on a list. Several schools run the typical peer program as a lottery.

VARIOUS IN-HOME PRESCHOOL OPTIONS

Location: various

Tuition: most are between $120-$200/month

Registration Fee: various

Schedule: various

Details: I know of at least 4 people who offer in-home preschool. Obviously you probably wouldn’t send your kid to someone’s home you didn’t know or trust, so the best way to find out about these is by word of mouth. If you would like information on the ones I know of, you can contact me, as I won’t be posting people’s personal phone numbers or addresses here. All of the ladies I know of fill up their spots pretty fast because they’re so popular, so if you want to avoid a wait list, start thinking about your options by January of the year you want to start preschool in the fall.

OTHER OPTIONS

 

When I did this research for myself, I was looking for a preschool-only type location. There are many daycare-type locations for preschool aged children in the area. I didn’t gather the complete information on them because I was looking for more of a “school” environment for just a couple hours a day that didn’t include daycare. 

 

I’ve include limited information and a link to many of the extended care businesses below. Because of the nature of daycare programs, specific pricing and schedules aren’t available online since it will differ from family to family based on childcare needs. Each site directs you to “request information” about pricing.
