Guide to Preschools & Schools in Collin County {2107-2018}

Moms, let’s get real. . . Deciding where to send your children is tough! Whether it’s daycare, preschool, public school, or private school, these are the places where your child will grow, develop, feel nurtured, and spend a large part of their day. No one should have to start this type of research on their own, so we’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you. 

Collin County Moms Blog is thrilled to announce our first in-depth guide to local childcare, preschools, and schools in the area. We hope that this guide on Collin County Moms Blog will serve as a resource for those new to town and those who are entering a new stage of parenthood. 

Below you’ll find a list of featured schools who we’ve personally developed a relationship with on Collin County Moms Blog. Just underneath, you’ll find an in-depth listing of local childcare centers, preschools, and schools from all over the area – listed by age they serve and the Collin County community they’re located in. Plus, we’ve tossed in some additional links to other relevant articles new moms in this stage might find helpful!

Don’t forget: in North Texas, almost all preschools and private schools begin enrollment at the beginning of 2018. You won’t want to miss these open enrollment/application dates if you’re looking for a spot in 2018-2019! 

Our mission behind this guide is to help you, but we always welcome your help! If you have any childcare, preschool, or private school recommendations for other parents, we invite you to leave them in the COMMENTS below! 

If you have questions about specific schools we also encourage you to ask the moms in our neighborhood groups about their thoughts and experiences. Who better to ask about local schools than actual moms who have experienced the schools themselves?

Good Luck as you begin this new adventure!

Explore Horizons is a tutoring and enrichment service in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that is dedicated to building fearless learners out of students in Pre-K through 8th grade.

“We believe that any child can flourish to meet and exceed their academic goals if they have a positive environment and encouraging tutors around them. It’s also exciting to watch newfound academic confidence translate into other areas of life! We use adaptive digital learning programs and highly tailored materials to meet a child right where they are, whether it be for standardized testing, high school prep, or bolstering weaker skills.”
