School Readiness Program

The Blue Elephant is committed to providing your family the best private preschool education in Frisco, TX. It is our mission to make each day great for your child, both emotionally and educationally. To support the growth and development of your little learners, we customize our curriculum to your child’s developmental stage, and we base our methodologies on world-leading research. Our staff offers three developmentally specific curriculums: an Infant Education Program, a Toddler Education Program, and our School Readiness Program. We want to provide our families with resources for our School Readiness Program so it can best benefit your child!

What is the School Readiness Program?

Our School Readiness Program provides Pre-K students stepping stones to prepare for Kindergarten, ensuring they’re set up for success. Our structured schedule helps students feel comfortable. Using math and literacy tools to build off our science-based preschool curriculum, our character development program also teaches skills important for school and life. Our School Readiness Program helps your child develop social and academic skills, learn independence, and build confidence to thrive in Kindergarten and beyond.

What Are Some At-Home Resources for Parents?

How to Prepare a School Readiness Bag

At The Blue Elephant, we know that you are your child’s first teacher and the most influential presence in their development. Children are more likely to perform at grade level when entering school if parents, guardians, and grandparents read to them on a regular basis, from early childhood. You can influence your child’s cognitive and social development by creating a School Readiness Bag for your pre-K student. You will need the following items to complete your bag:

  • The Texas School Ready Parent Literacy Handbook (literacy and math activities, available for download in English, Spanish, or Dual-Language)
  • A magnetic clip to hang the handbook on the refrigerator for quick reference
  • Books to read aloud and do activities with your children
  • English: If You Give a Pig a Pancake, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Mouse Count
  • Spanish: Si le das un panqueque a una cerdita, Chica Chica Bum Bum, Fiesta para 10, Huevos verdes con jamon, Caldo de Piedras
  • Other suggested books to read aloud to children
  • A set of uppercase and lowercase letters for playing alphabet games
  • Alphabet Activities for parents and children
  • Alphabet arch in Spanish
  • Alphabet arch in English
  • A set of math counters for playing counting games
  • Two “fun” pens to get children excited about writing
