Full-day PreK
Leander ISD is excited to announce the expansion of prekindergarten from a half-day to full-day program for eligible 4-year-olds starting in the 2020–21 school year!


PreK Registration

See if your child qualifies for PreK by clicking on the "Eligibility Requirements" tab in blue below. Registration for the 2020-2021 school year is open. To register for PreK during the summer of 2020, please call the main district office at 512-570-0000. We will not have in-person campus registration at this time; all facilities and schools are closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Tuition-based PreK
At this time our district leadership has decided that due to the pandemic, we will not be able to provide tuition-based Pre-K for the 2020-2021 school year. Anticipating a potential increase in eligible students and the impact of social distancing guidelines, it is necessary to increase the space within LISD’s classrooms to accommodate eligible students in keeping with state requirements. We will continue to make any updates to our program here and hope to be able to provide the tuition-based program in future school years.


The purpose of the LISD PreK program is to teach, grow and nurture each student in a positive and developmentally appropriate manner through a play-based curriculum, so that each student can be successful.

Transportation is provided for students in LISD's PreK program.
