Paragon Prep Preschool

Now Enrolling PreK-3 and PreK-4
for the 2022-23 School Year!

Paragon Preschool provides children with the building blocks needed for kindergarten. We meet the child where they are and cultivate these skills needed for Kindergarten while fostering responsibility, social emotional learning, and growth for the whole child.

Paragon Preschool may look like a full day of play, but students are learning through every interaction to prepare them for school and their future. Play as a building block improves memory, helps children regulate emotions, negotiate interactions with each other, and results in higher cognitive ability.

Preschool is not school, it is that magical period of life that occurs prior to attending school. It is when we learn by touching, smelling and tasting. Paragon’s preschool curriculum is geared to teach the academic fundamentals while engaging meaningful learning through play.

Playing outside helps nurture imagination, free play and how to interact with our environment. Our mini Knights play outside every day and grow a garden. We even get to eat lunch outside on good weather days.

Paragon Preschool takes field trips! Our PK Knights experience the best resources Austin has to offer. When on a field trip, we not only learn about our destination, we also learn the valuable lessons of standing in line, being patient, and experiencing new environments.

Parties help us celebrate everything from changes in the season to different cultures. Parents and families are welcome to join us for parties and help us celebrate!
