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. We offer private and DISD pre-K classes.


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.
