The Best Preschools near by

Looking for the Top Recommended Preschools near by around Plano, McKinney, Allen, Frisco and North Dallas?

Do you have preschool aged kids or are you going to soon? Plano and the surrounding areas have so many top-notch preschools.

There is no “one best” Preschool in Plano — or anywhere for that matter. Not every school is right for every child. That is why it is important for parents to look around to find what works for your child — and what works for your family. This guide covers Preschools listed in Allen, Dallas, Frisco, McKinney, Plano and surrounding cities.

We know that this is a considered and well researched choice that you make when you place your child in the hands of carers, teachers and staff at a Preschool.

This Guide features schools that:

Cater to children from 6 weeks and generally through ages 2-5. Some also offer Private Kindergarten as an option. Many (but not all) require children to be potty-trained upon admission. All preschools listed are privately owned which means you do not have to live in the city where they are located for your child to attend.

We try and list as many Preschools as possible and some have been featured highly because they are Recommended by Moms in our Community of Plano Moms and many have requested to be sponsors of the guide. We’ve gathered some input from Moms around town and made a list of some of the most recommended learning centers to send your kids to in Plano.

You may also be interested in Mother’s Day Out programs which provide more part-time hours for flexibility.

Hours

Many of the options are in session a few hours per day or full working days and many operate on school-year calendars – although some are year-round. The School Year options do offer Summer Camp options for older siblings too. There are some gray areas; some schools may offer optional extended care options and some offer extended calendar years.

Fees

Fees vary according to the facilities, programs and extras that are offered. For instance, some Preschools have a Chef offering hot meals every day and include Wipes, Snacks, Drinks and other daily extras.

If these options don’t work for your needs, you might also consider some Mother’s Day Out options
