What’s the #1 question we are asked??? What preschools do you recommend? Moms want to know the options, where others send their kids, and what educational philosophy those schools abide by. So, we compiled a list of Tarrant County schools that are great options for your little ones. You’ll find a variety of curriculum choices, pricing options, and time slots.
Arborlawn Children’s Academy is a Christian-based, school-readiness preschool that focuses on the social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual development of the young child. It provides children an active learning experience in which they discover, create, explore, and participate in God’s world. All classrooms use Frog Street curriculum implementing conscious discipline for classroom management and social-emotional components of the curriculum. Children participate in weekly chapel and have a weekly music class with a music teacher. The small class sizes ensure each child receives individual attention and learning opportunities through large and small group instruction. Arborlawn Children’s Academy also focuses on a color, shape, and math concept each month. The school closely follows the FWISD school schedule. Classes are in session September through May.

“Learning through play, growing with God.” The preschool and mother’s day out programs at Arlington Heights United Methodist Church provide for the growth and development of the whole child. This approach emphasizes interrelated areas such as intellectual, social, physical, spiritual, and emotional development. Emphasis is placed on meeting the needs of individual children in a group setting. Each child experiences success and positive feelings of self-worth at his or her level of maturity. A Christian environment rich in opportunities for growth fosters a love for learning. Special enrichment activities like chapel, soccer, music, and Spanish round out the curriculum.
Mildred Haupt Preschool focuses on play-based learning rather than a traditionally academic approach. The classrooms are not overly structured and allow children the opportunity to select from several activities and play either alone or in small groups. The teachers work to help students develop appropriate social skills including communication, sharing, listening, and empathy, while also equipping them with the academics necessary for succeeding in kindergarten and beyond.

School Hours: Mother’s day out on Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.; and preschool two-, three-, and five-day options from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (early and extended care available).
