A Guide to Collin County Education & Childcare

Disclosure :: We are frequently asked about early childhood programs and recommendations for child care, preschools and schools in Collin County and understand that picking a school or child care center that fits your child’s and your family’s needs can be an overwhelming task. We are thrilled to provide this guide resource, brought to you by our many sponsors! Thank you to those that participated in this guide.

Moms, let’s get real…Deciding where to send your children is tough! Whether it’s daycare, preschool, public school, or private school, these are the places where your child will grow, develop, feel nurtured, and spend a large part of their day. No one should have to start this type of research on their own, so we’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you.

Collin County Moms is thrilled to announce our second in-depth guide to local childcare, preschools, and schools in the area. We hope that this guide on Collin County Moms will serve as a resource for those new to town and those who are entering a new stage of parenthood.

If you have questions about specific schools we also encourage you to ask the moms in our neighborhood groups about their thoughts and experiences. Who better to ask about local schools than actual moms who have experienced the schools themselves?

Don’t forget: In North Texas, almost all preschools and private schools begin enrollment in early Winter of 2020/2021. You won’t want to miss these open enrollment/application dates if you’re looking for a spot in 2021-2022! 

Good luck as you begin this new adventure!

Thank you to the following featured sponsors who helped us bring you this guide.
