Preschool

Fully accredited by SACS and voted Best Preschool in the Bryan and College Station area in the 2017 Best of the Brazos Valley, Allen Academy is an excellent choice for your child!

With classrooms led by fully certified teachers with years of experience, Allen Academy’s preschool program nurtures a love of learning by inviting students to participate and grow through interactive lessons, games, and activities that are appropriate for each child in both age and maturity. Our program provides a well-rounded and challenging academic experience for children in Pre-K I (3-year-olds) and Pre-K II (4-year-olds). We place a strong emphasis upon the uniqueness of each child so that they may learn to value others in the same way.

At Allen Academy, we believe it is important to nurture every child’s cognitive and physical growth, as well as their social and emotional development, helping them learn the basics of cooperating, sharing, following directions, and self-acceptance. Using a theme-based curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and student-centered, we provide an environment where children are encouraged to be children. Play becomes the tool for learning in a warm and loving atmosphere that nurtures the child’s total growth and development. School days are structured to provide a balance of inquiry, exploration and play-based learning.

In addition, our preschool students receive regular Music and PE instruction from Allen’s Music and PE co-curricular teachers. Receiving instruction from the same co-curricular teachers as the Lower School students allows for a more streamlined experience as students transition from Preschool to Kindergarten, in regards to both curriculum and instruction.

What do you love about Allen? The thing I love most about Allen is the sense of family.  Everyone works together to make this a great school.  We have helpful parents, wonderful students and hard working teachers.  I truly enjoy having been a part of the families and getting to see so many former students on a daily basis. It is a great place to raise your children and to be a part of in all aspects.
