Full-Day Pre-Kindergarten

  • Keller ISD is expanding its current half-day Pre-Kindergarten program for eligible 4-year-olds to a full-day program beginning in the 2020-21 school year.

    Texas lawmakers approved funding for the expansion of full-day Pre-K statewide during the 2019 Legislative Session. There may also be opportunities for students who don’t qualify for the free program to participate in a tuition-supported program.
