Below are broad categories of the type of curriculum including Traditional, Religious, Montessori and British. All schools in the traditional category have created a curriculum for themselves taking elements of the most favored programs such as Montessori, family-focused, fun-focused, STEAM, or academic focused.

Free preschool offered in Texas for children who qualify

A free, public pre-kindergarten education is offered in Texas to students deemed "at risk". Some of eligibility guidelines include unable to speak or understand a English, a child of a US military member or US military member who was injured or killed while serving, child of someone who is eligibile for the Star of Texas award, or homeless.
