Why Pre-K?

  • Early childhood education offers our youngest learners strong foundations built on solid academic concepts, as well as individual and group discovery.

    HISD has 154 elementary campuses with Pre-K that provide nurturing environments for young learners to reach their highest potential, as well as 8 Early Childhood Centers (ECC) which cater specifically to our youngest learners.


    All elementary schools will be participating in two application fairs to assist parents with the application process for prekindergarten three ways, In-Person, Virtually, and Over the Phone to ensure families have one-on-one options. The events will take place on Saturday, February 19, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to noon and Thursday, March 3, 2022 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

    Families can receive application assistance one of three ways:

    • In person: Walking into any HISD elementary school or Early Childhood Center with all required documents

    • Phone: Calling the HISD hotline at 713-556-6734

    • Virtual: Joining the information session below and/or book a 15 minute consultation with one of our team members

    Required enrollment documents include:

    • Proof of address (utility bill such as light, gas, water, or lease)

    • Child’s original birth certificate

    • Child’s immunization record

    • Parent identification

    Support will be available virtually and on the phone in English and Spanish.
