Families can learn about the unique, hands-on Pre-Kindergarten programs offered in Alief ISD at the annual Pre-K Preview on Saturday, March 4, 2023. The free event takes place at the Center for Talent Development, 14411 Westheimer Road, from 10 AM to 2 PM.
Families of students entering Pre-K in the 2023-24 school year are invited to attend. VIP registration for the next school year is available for families who bring along your child’s birth certificate, proof of address such as an apartment lease or utility bill, and immunization records. Parents of students living outside the Alief ISD attendance boundaries can apply to enroll their children in the district’s innovative Pre-K through the Limited Open Enrollment Program.
In addition, all attendees will receive a lunch box, an Alief coloring book, and a water bottle. Snacks will be provided.
“Studies have shown how important it is for children to get a good educational foundation early on. Children who attend an advanced Pre-K program, like the innovative Pre-K program in Alief ISD, perform at a higher level and are more likely to excel in reading, writing and math,” Kimberly Smith, Director of Public Relations, said. “Parents who want their children to be successful learners really need to take advantage of this enormous opportunity to see the program in action during the Pre-K Preview. It is truly unique and this innovative interactive program is only available in Alief.”
The full-day Pre-K program is free for students who will be four years old by September 1 and who meet requirements, such as eligible family income; English language learner; homelessness/unstable housing; current or past foster care; child of an active duty member of the armed forces; or child of a person eligible for the Star of Texas Award (first responders). To find out if your child qualifies, contact Student Services at (281) 988-3100.
Alief offers a limited number of tuition-based Pre-K spots in its award-winning early childhood programs as well. The interactive Pre-K program is available to Alief employees and district residents whose children do not qualify for full-day Pre-K. Tuition is $675 per month or $6,750 per year per student.
Registration for the 2023-2024 school year for new and returning Alief students is now open online. New Alief residents can also register students for the current school year at www.aliefisd.net/enroll. Information on Limited Open Enrollment is available at www.aliefisd.net/loe.
