About Preschool
and Child’s Day Out

Our History

Since 1971, Covenant Presbyterian Preschool and Child’s Day Out has offered half-day, high-quality exploratory learning in a Christian environment.

We are licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Our school year follows the Austin Independent School District academic schedule.

Holistic learning through a comprehensive curriculum

Your child will grow through a curriculum that uses creative activities and large-group time to foster problem-solving skills, self-control, and acceptance of responsibility.

Different units of study involve discovery tables, art projects, language games, Christian values, spiritual growth, and motor-skill activities.

Preschool students participate in music every week, attend weekly chapel, and are introduced to Spanish. Different units of study involve discovery tables, art projects, language games, Christian values, spiritual growth, and motor skill activities.

In our Children’s Day Out Program, we focus on building basic trust and fostering your child’s autonomy while guiding their development through sensory stimulation and concrete experiences. Your toddler or two-year-old will experience a variety of activities including music, books, puzzles, crayons, paints, and more.

School Readiness Programs

Covenant’s Preschool participates in the Texas Education Agency’s Kindergarten Readiness System. We also use the “Get Set for School” curriculum in fours and fives classes.

Caring, qualified staff and teachers

Our dedicated and fun-loving teachers have degrees in elementary education, child development, or equivalent training and experience with preschool children.

All staff are certified in CPR and first aid. Each team member also takes an additional 24 hours of study in child development every year.
