Our Pre-Kindergarten program goals are aligned to State of Texas learning standards, ensuring that USLC’s curriculum builds the skills that children need for future academic success. Above all else, our staff is responsive to children’s varying needs and abilities, which builds each child’s confidence and instills a love for learning!

Pre-Kindergarteners enjoy child-centered activities in advanced math and science, reading, writing, art, and computers. Every day starts off with Chess and Circle Time, which includes songs, music, poems, and group discussions. Universal Satori Learning Centers, Inc. supplements our outstanding Pre-K program with our exclusive enrichment programs, including Introductory Spanish, Computer Instruction, and Music – this unique combination of traditional instruction and enrichment programs is the cornerstone of the

  • Chess
  • Music Appreciation
  • Health

Interest areas are structured to offer opportunities for both quiet and active play, while promoting cooperation between children, and allowing them to organize their time. Our teachers encourage children to use their imaginations and to make their own decisions.

Our classrooms (3-5 year olds) maintain a child to staff ratio of 11:1, allowing staff members to work with the children individually, in small groups, and as a class each day. As with the other age groups, a daily report is sent home, summarizing your child's day at USLC! In addition, our staff maintains an assessment portfolio for each child, which tracks developmental progress using graphs, checklists and work samples. Children’s assessment portfolios are stored in the classroom with their journals, alphabet books, and other work in progress – these materials are always available for parents to review.
