Enroll Your Child in the DISD Pre-K Program at Pace and Ross

For over 20 years, Pace and Ross has offered quality, early learning programs that help children reach important milestones and prepare them for success in school.


Dallas ISD pre-K enrollment for the 2018–2019 school year kicked off on Monday, April 2. The district offers both free and tuition-based Pre-K programs throughout the district.

Pre-K classes offer a safe environment that includes daily, structured academic lessons. Studies have shown that children who attend prekindergarten are more likely to succeed in school, more likely to graduate and more likely to go to college.

Enroll at Pace and Ross, or your nearest elementary school.


Who is eligible? 

Dallas ISD offers free Pre-K programs for children who are three- or four-years-old on or before September 1, 2018 and meet at least ONE of these requirements:
  • The child is eligible to take part in the national free or reduced-price school lunch program. To find out if your child is eligible, click here.
  • The child is unable to speak and comprehend the English language.
  • The child is homeless.
  • The child is a dependent of an active duty member of the U.S. armed forces.
  • The child is or has been in foster care.

Again, they only have to meet ONE of these requirements to qualify for free Pre-K. If you do not qualify for free Pre-K, you can still pay for childcare and attend the nationally accredited Pace and Ross Pre-K program with the same full-day, quality care.
