Austin, TX Preschools
Although it is almost universally agreed on that early childhood education sets the foundation for a child’s entire educational experience, it can be hard to locate a comprehensive list of independent preschool programs that are well-respected. And it can be really hard to decide which Austin neighborhood to live in if you don’t know where it is in relation to the educational options.
