Cleburne ISD uses Frog Street, a comprehensive, early childhood-focused curriculum available in both English and Spanish, and follows the Texas Education Agency’s Prekindergarten Guidelines in its pre-kindergarten classrooms.
Through whole-group, small-group, and individualized instructional opportunities, Cleburne ISD pre-kindergarteners grow academically and socioemotionally as they pique their curiosity, develop lifelong friendships, and take their first steps on the path to becoming a Yellow Jacket graduate.
We offer full-day pre-kindergarten at all seven Cleburne ISD elementary campuses; bilingual pre-kindergarten programs are available at Cooke, Irving, and Santa Fe Elementaries.
