tons of attention and a
more structured routine

With two teachers per classroom for more attention and care, we create an early learning environment in which your child is fully attended to. In addition to plenty of personal attention, we give your child the security of a structured daily routine, while allowing time for them to explore their independence, and encouraging them to express themselves.

a sound foundation for
emerging language skills

At this age, children are discovering the exciting world of words and beginning to experiment with their new sounds. The introduction of Jolly Phonics encourages and consolidates their learning for future success with speaking and writing. This approach is a fun and child-centered way to teach literacy through synthetic phonics.

exceptional teaching team
guiding your child

Our incredible teaching team believes in education, and many members have degrees or are presently pursuing higher education. Having a team of professionals who are educated and who value knowledge is crucial to the learning experience, as they embrace every opportunity to facilitate your child’s learning.

enhancing creative and
critical thinking skills

As their awareness grows, children are encouraged to observe, imagine, conceptualize, and to create, as well as to discover the natural consequences of their thought processes and actions. Perception develops, and organic learning happens throughout the day, along with their structured daily activities. Based on the Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Kindergarten, the Upstream Learning curriculum gives your child every advantage possible as they prepare for the start of school.

fresh air, outdoor play, and the
benefits of a nature setting

Outdoor play increases focus, attention, concentration, and has a tremendously positive effect on self-esteem. Children are given the space to walk, run, and jump around as they safely explore play structures, gardens, our outdoor patio classroom, and more. At Upstream, our natural environment is as vital as our effective curriculum. Your little one gets outside every day for fresh air and exercise and has fun.

social skills that
come from the heart

Our Christian values are at the heart of everything we do, from prayers before meals to our culture of kindness. Children learn respect, patience, and compassion from a young age. Saying “please” and “thank you,” actively listening, sharing, taking turns, and playing well together are all part of what will define your child’s future character as they grow.

communicating with your child’s teacher is easy with our app

Two-way communication is at your fingertips with “Remind,” our easy-to-use parent communication app. You’ll receive important reminders and announcements through the app and can request information at any time! In addition, your child’s teacher writes personalized notes about your child’s daily triumphs and plenty of photos. Educators and parents can easily communicate, share information, send reminders so that you are always in the loop and up-to-date on your child’s day.

Community Events
Always Involve Parents

We always invite parents to participate in activities at the school, from Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to our annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Community events such as Parents’ Night Out, Spirit Nights, held at local restaurants, and other family events are monthly occurrences. Everyone looks forward to being together.

Exciting In-House Visits from Vets, Dentists, Police Officers, and More

Readers from the library visit every month, and we host visits from community members such as firemen, police officers, hairdressers, dentists, vets, bankers, and more. A reading group from our local active adult community, The Mad Hatters, give a live presentation, and of course the big man in red visits every year at Christmas.

"Within days our son was happy to run into school 🙌 that is the best feeling ever..."
Read More

Our tour with Emily and Jeneffer was like no other. They asked questions, allowed us to ask ours, and gave our kiddo space to play and become comfortable while we talked. And then they gave us the facility tour. We didn’t feel rushed and we could see and feel the care they have for the children and families in their care. The best part, within days our son was happy to run into school 🙌 that is the best feeling ever. It is HARD to find a good center. But I can tell you that Upstream Learning is phenomenal.

I CANNOT say enough good things about this school. My little one has been going there since she was 1. She is thriving and loves the school, the staff and her friends so much. The environment is so warm, welcoming, loving and vibrant. The teachers and staff are beyond amazing. The kids are so sweet and your little will be surrounded by amazing people and other kids. Upstream is also a school that my own mother, highly recommends and cannot say enough good things about either. Read more...

This preschool is one of a kind. The curriculum, the community, and the care that is provided by this school is like no other around. We tried to find something closer for my son (19 months) but after looking at more than 20 different closer preschools, we determined there is nothing comparable. The staff are warm and love the children, but also amazing educators. We love our Upstream family and are so thankful to have them as an integral part of our child’s development.

"The family culture draws you in and makes you feel at ease"
Read More

The moment we went on our first tour we felt like family. From meeting the teachers, to seeing the campus, to the extensive welcome packet, all of it was informative and put us at ease. The family culture draws you in and makes you feel at ease, while the attention to curriculum and training of teachers helps you to know that your child will not only be where they need to be academically, but they will also be well rounded kids as they enter the world of public/private school after preschool. Thank you, Upstream Learning!

"Peace Of Mind Knowing My Children Are Safe And Loved."
Read More

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"
Read More

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!

“My son loves to get ready to play with his friends every morning.”

If I can’t be with my son during the day, Upstream is the place I want him to be. The first time I toured, I walked into one of the classes and they had they’re prayer hands ready to give thanks for their food. I knew I wanted him in this environment. He’s now 2 and loves to get ready to play with his friends every morning. I love the structure and the roaming space to play. The staff is so nurturing and I’m grateful for their hard work. Thank you ladies!

“children become well rounded, lifelong learners.”

Upstream Learning is an amazing preschool! After searching and searching for the right school for my son, we found everything we were wanting (and more) at Upstream Learning. The teachers and owners are wonderful, and committed to helping children become well rounded, lifelong learners. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a safe, inviting school that encourages play, investigation, and making learning fun!

“I know they are ALWAYS safe”

The ratio of teachers to children is one of the main reasons I love this school. The teachers are all amazing and I always feel comfortable leaving my babies with them no matter which teacher my babies are with, I know they are ALWAYS safe. I also love the location of the school and how it’s not on a main rd!
