Our objective is to help children learn of God’s love, increase self-esteem, socialization skills, increase physical ability and establish a sequence of learning to prepare children for grade school.

About Us — Fifty Years of Excellence

Covenant Presbyterian Preschool and Child's Day Out is a half-day program that has provided high-quality exploratory learning in a Christian environment since 1971. We aim to provide exceptional educational experiences in a caring environment to enable children to develop spiritually, socially, physically and intellectually.
We are located in Covenant’s Fellowship and Education Building and serve ages nine months (by Sept. 1) to five years, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students attend music every week, and our three- to five-year-old’s attend chapel weekly and are introduced to Spanish. We follow the Austin Independent School District schedule. Covenant Presbyterian Preschool and Child’s Day Out is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Our Curriculum

We provide each child opportunities for personal growth through creative activities and foster problem-solving skills, self-control, and acceptance of responsibility. Circle time activities, stories, games and conversational exercises provide opportunities for interaction among the children in a large group setting. Teachers develop their curriculum by themes/units of study that include discovery tables, art projects, language games, Christian values, spiritual growth, and gross and fine motor skill activities.

We provide consistency that helps our kids to gain independence and learn how to be successful in the real world: ‘How do I share?’ ‘How do I play with and respect others?’ 'How do I make the world a better place?' We actively participate in the Texas Education Agency’s Kindergarten Readiness System and implement the “Get Set for School” curriculum in our fours and fives classes.

Concepts we teach include: 

  • Reading and writing concepts: body awareness, cooperation, grip, drawing, letter and number recognition, capital letter and number formation.
  • Language and literacy concepts: syllables, names and sounds of letters, words linked to content, new words in spoken language, how to respond to simple questions, how to have discussions and share new ideas.
  • Numbers and math concepts: counting, comparisons, spatial awareness, patterning, sequencing, matching, sorting, problem-solving and Pre-K geometry skills.
