Welcome to Meridith-Dunbar Early Childhood Academy!
TISD now serves close to 600 Prekindergarten students. The Pre-kindergarten program is open to monolingual and bilingual students who turn 3 or 4 by September 1st of the current school year and meet the qualifications set forth by Title I. These include meeting the income guidelines for free and reduced lunch, students who have difficulty speaking or understanding the English language, and children of an active Military parent or a parent who has been killed or injured in active duty, foster children and those who meet the qualifications as homeless. We hold pre-registration each May and accept applications throughout the school year.
Our classrooms are arranged to invite involvement in a variety of learning activities with consideration to large and small muscle development, social maturity, emerging literacy, math and science explorations, as well as art, music and movement. Our staff believes that each child who comes to our program is a unique and special individual. We will work with parents to make their child’s first school experience one that will set the stage for years of successful learning and achievement. Please come by and visit our program at Meridith-Dunbar Early Childhood Academy!
