The good news is that the team at First Class Child Development is here to help you make the right choice! We’ve been serving our community in Houston and the surrounding area for over two decades and there’s nothing we love more than helping families to learn and grow.

Whether you’ve taken advantage of our nursery or toddler classrooms in the past or you’ve had your kiddos at home with you, but you’re looking into your options for preschool, we’re here to help. That’s why in today’s post we’ll be sharing a bit about when the best time is to consider preschool and what you can expect from our program if you choose us. Keep reading to learn more!

What Age Is Right For Our Preschool?

At First Class, our preschool program is designed for children from 3-5 years old. If your child falls within that range, feel free to reach out to us to ask any questions you may have or get our input on your specific situation because we’d be glad to help! 

What Can You Expect From Our Classroom?

At FCCD, we’re all for children learning about themselves and others while seeking solutions to problems. In other words, we’re always on the lookout for age-appropriate ways to teach them about problem solving, providing them with crucial tools that they can carry all the way through school and into adulthood. Research has shown that children do best in environments that are stress-free, and we go above and beyond to foster a space that allows your children to learn without any stressors.

We also encourage creative play as a method of learning problem solving in addition to math, science, social studies, health, and various other subjects. We pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere that is positive, encouraging, and creative for your child. It can be hard to send your kiddo off on his or her own, but we want you to rest assured that we’ve worked hard to create a preschool program that utilizes the latest research and the most time-tested methods for teaching your kids. No matter what you hope for your child to get out of the experience, you can count on us to offer a number of beneficial activities designed to give your kids exactly what they need.

What Should You Bring?

Needless to say, it’s best to send your kids to school with a couple of items to ensure that they’re able to make it through the day. We recommend a change of clothes, toothbrush and toothpaste, a comb, a blanket, and something that your child loves and finds comfort in like a stuffed animal. 

Other than that, simply bring your child in and let us take care of the rest! We’ll supply everything from building blocks to play dough to paper and crayons to ingredients for cooking. 

Have a Question? We’re Here to Help!

As we mentioned above, if you’d like to speak with us and share any questions that you may  have, we’d love to hear from you! With academic accreditation, degreed teachers, and low ratios of students to teachers, you can count on First Class Child Development to take great care of your children regardless of what classroom they’re in.

Speaking of which, in addition to our nursery, toddler classroom, and preschool, we also offer kindergarten and elementary classrooms and afterschool care in Houston. Feel free to browse our website to learn more or start the enrollment process today. We look forward to hearing from you!
