Welcome to Your
Upstream Learning Preschool exudes warmth and a family feel. Our six-room house turned preschool is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled amongst tall trees. This serene learning environment is designed to be cozy, comfortable, and calming. Your child explores their full learning potential in this charming home-style setting within a lovely natural landscape.
Small Classes For
More Personal Attention
Bonding with their teachers enables children to maintain emotional balance, feel confident, enjoy being with others, share their feelings, seek support, and rebound from disappointment and loss. For these reasons, we prioritize small class sizes, offer highly individualized care, give plenty of one-on-one time and personal attention to your child.
Children can safely explore epic playgrounds, gardens, a sensory play patio, and a covered courtyard across our two acre grounds.
Our curriculum is a
World Of immersive Learning
The Upstream Learning Program invites children to delve into learning through experience. Children explore guided activities based on bi-weekly themes. The varied activities, in-line with the topic, bring a sense of fun and celebration to subject matter. Your child experiences a sense of continuity as the idea is revisited at a later time and in a later stage in their development.
Our curriculum has been designed utilizing the Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Kindergarten, and is based on high-interest themes that maximize student engagement. We confidently guarantee your child will learn all the skills necessary to be ready for Kindergarten. The Upstream Learning curriculum is engaging, age-appropriate, rigorous, and fun.
Remarkable Skills In Reading,
Writing, Math, and Science
Children start the Jolly Phonics program for reading by age two. By four, their vocabulary explodes as they understand syllables and the sounds of words through the familiar songs they’ve been singing. The “Handwriting Without Tears” program supports early and successful handwriting, and we focus heavily on hands-on math and science as well. In our Three’s, Pre-K, and Kinder Ready classrooms, we use portfolios and journals to track your child’s personal progress to help them hone and improve their skills.

"Peace of mind knowing my children are safe and loved."
My daughter attended Upstream Learning from the age of 2 and my son from the age of 4. The amazing staff guided and cared for my children every day when I could not be with them. Both my children were beyond prepared for their kindergarten year and continue to perform above grade level. I will never be able to repay Upstream Learning for the peace of mind they gave me knowing my children were safe and loved.
"More than prepared to start school"
All three of my children attended Upstream and absolutely loved it! My oldest 2 only attended the year before they started kindergarten, but in that short time, they were MORE than prepared to start school, both excelling in school-straight A students! My youngest attended two years prior to starting kinder and WOW is all I can say! She is at the top of her class in everything, especially reading! The staff is amazing! So friendly and caring for your children, they are like extended family! I would HIGHLY recommend this school, you will not regret it!
"It is so welcoming and feels like home."
So thankful to have found this preschool for my two children. It is so welcoming and feels like home. I love that it is locally/family owned, has Christian values and teaches what they need to know for kindergarten, and is character building. I highly recommend putting it on your list to visit when deciding where to send your child – I just wish I had found it sooner!
