Private Preschool Education in Frisco, TX

The Blue Elephant is the leading private preschool serving Frisco TX and the surrounding community. We offer exceptional early education and childcare services to families, and it is our mission to help every child grow into the very best person they can be. Everyone has something beautiful to contribute to the world, and every child is unique and precious in his or her own way. That’s why we’re so passionate about helping children in and around Frisco become mature, healthy, well-rounded individuals, and why we have engineered a nurturing and educational environment in which children flourish.

Early Childhood Education Experts

Thanks to our research-based curriculum, a world-class team of early childhood educators, and an unwavering commitment to our little learners, we’re proud to be the premier private preschool and early childhood learning center in Frisco, Texas. While it takes a team effort to make The Blue Elephant what it is, we truly wouldn’t be the special place we are today without years of commitment and dedication by our founders, Clay and Meredith.

Clay & Meredith Carpenter: Partners In Children’s Education

In 2003, husband-wife team Clay and Meredith moved to the fast-growing city of Frisco. Both share a passion for childhood education and a continuous commitment to our family here at The Blue Elephant, taking on active roles in the school and propelling each student’s success.

Meredith: A History Of Child Care

As president of the school, Meredith plays a hands-on role in the center’s daily operations. She spent her younger years surrounded by the children who attended her mother’s preschool, observing and practicing caregiving skills each day. She had a knack for early childhood work at a young age, went on to receive an elementary education degree, and was hired as a Frisco ISD teacher. She operated a successful in-home preschool before opening TBE in 2011.

Clay: Passion For Family & The Frisco Community

Clay, a full-time Assistant Fire Chief, is dedicated to his family, his work, and of course, The Blue Elephant. His strong work ethic, positive spirit, and passion for guiding the next generation make him an invaluable asset to our school. In his spare time, Clay enjoys technology, vintage cars, water activities, and bowling with his family.

The Carpenter Kids

Clay and Meredith have two children, Madison (aka Gracie) and Tyler. Now teenagers, both kids attended The Blue Elephant when they were younger and made memories that will last a lifetime. Gracie and Tyler especially loved our summer program, which was full of action-packed field trips, themed parties, and special guests.
