Welcome to Early Childhood
The department of early childhood education in Clear Creek ISD provides early learning opportunities for children who are three and four years old. Early childhood education increases student learning in language, literacy, and math and prepares children to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
To best meet the needs of our students and community, Clear Creek ISD offers three early childhood programs:
Pre-kindergarten is an early learning program to prepare children for kindergarten who are identified as at risk. Pre-kindergarten provides learning to children who are 4 years old on or before September 1st. Pre-kindergarten for three year olds provides learning to children who are 3 on or before September 1st.
Tuition-based Pre-Kindergarten (Tuition-based PK)
