Four-Year-Old Fountains of Knowledge



IDEA’s Student Lottery is less than 3 weeks away, and limited spots are still available in our Pre-K program.  If your child will be 4 years old by September 1, 2018, you can apply now!

Why Pre-K? 

While only about half of students in the United States attend Pre-K, numerous studies have shown that a child who begins their academic career in Pre-K, as opposed to starting in kindergarten a year later, will more likely flourish in school and graduate from high school.   

A child’s education is a journey that builds upon itself for years and years.  A child learns letters to build words, learns to count, add and subtract so that someday he or she can solve equations or balance finances.  There is nothing more important than foundational knowledge, and that is exactly what each scholar learns in IDEA’s Pre-K program—the educational foundation to be a great student.  Our dedicated teachers track each student’s progress and match instruction to meet their specific needs. Our students have fun learning as they start on the road to success in college and in life!



An IDEA Pre-K classroom is a great place to learn and grow.

Parent Testimony

Elle Evans, a proud IDEA Pre-K parent, said this of her son, Jackson: “My son is now a four-year-old fountain of knowledge.  Since he started Pre-K at IDEA this fall, he has learned all of his numbers, how to count, add, subtract, recognize words and build them from sounds, how to sit tall, how to work together, and so much more.”  

Did you know that 99.85% of IDEA Pre-K students leave Pre-K completing kindergarten work?


In an IDEA Pre-K classroom, scholars take turns working with their teacher in small groups, and applying that knowledge independently.   



Your child can start early on the road to success in college and in life.
