PreK and Preschool Registration


As part of our Start Smart initiative, we are partnering with Lubbock ISDFrenship ISD, Lubbock-Cooper ISD, Early Learning Centers, and the YWCA of Lubbock to encourage families to register for pre-k or preschool. 

When children attend high-quality preschool or pre-k, they are...

  • more likely to succeed in school,
  • more likely to have a full-time job and consistent employment later in life, 
  • less likely to develop alcohol or drug problems, commit a felony, or go to prison.

What will my child learn?

High-quality prekindergarten provides a learning environment that inspires curiosity, builds confidence, and fosters a love of learning. Children learn essential skills for being successful in school like:

  • Paying attention
  • Following 2-3 step directions
  • Learning lots of new vocabulary words for objects and ideas that help them to comprehend what they read and hear
  • Learning the ABCs and the sounds associated with each letter
  • Learning how to read and write short words including their name
  • Learning numbers from 1-to 20 and counting
  • Sequencing, sorting and problem-solving skills that will help them with reading and math
  • Following daily routines
  • Taking turns, sharing, and appropriately communicating with others
  • Building strength and coordination of muscles for academic and nonacademic activities
  • Exploring
  • Asking questions
  • Seeking answers
  • Building confidence as learners and a positive relationship with school
