Premier Private School in Frisco, TX

At The Blue Elephant, we do everything we can to help our little learners grow, mature, and develop into the absolute best people they can be. That means we work hard to find the best teaching talent that the community has to offer, we structure our lesson plans on the latest, most accurate findings in developmental science, and we make every day in our classrooms a fun, engaging learning experience. Even though we’re a premier North Texas child care and preschool provider we know a lot of a child’s development happens outside the classroom. Parents often tell us it’s hard to know where to look for guidance on how to nurture their child. To help, we’ve compiled a handy list of great resources you can refer to when you have questions on how to help your child be the best they can be.
