About the Pre-K 3 Program

  • Starting the 2017-2018 School Year, local Day Cares and Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD will be accepting students for a new Pre-Kinder 3 Program. Interested parents may choose one of the following:

    Option 1: Full-Day Partnering Day Cares

    Do you have a 3-year-old receiving day care services? Or are you planning to enroll them at a day care?

    If so, enroll them at a PSJA Partner Day Care where they will receive PSJA ISD school readiness instructional support to help ensure they are ready for school!

    Our school district partners with various local day cares in the area providing a Certified Teacher and/or training, guidance and support to day care staff. This fee-based option provides full-day care for your child.

    Financial arrangements can be made with the day care of your choice. You may be eligible for funding assistance, inquire with your selected day care.

    Students must be 3 years of age by September 1 to be eligible to receive these services.
