Instruction Junction Inclusive Preschool is a Texas Rising Star Program. We serve children 2 years – Kindergarten with and without disabilities. We are Texas Rising Star certified and strive to prepare each student to be successful developmentally, socially, and academically when they enter Kindergarten. In support of this, we utilize components of the Frog Street Curriculum and Circle (Children’s Learning Institute) Curriculum.
To meet the individual needs of the child, we offer a very low teacher-student ratio. All of our classes follow daily schedules and are provided breakfast, lunch, and snack. Our caring, compassionate, loving teachers are supported by our therapists to provide exceptional services. Children needing therapy can receive services during the day while on campus.
CCCS Funding – We accept Texas Workforce Commission Child Care Contractor Services funding.
The Shorkey Center offers a variety of services to meet the needs of children.
