When I was a kid, we called it Nursery School. It was where we went when we were too young for kindergarten. These days, they call it prekindergarten and its time to pre-register.

If you have or know of a child that will be 4 years old on or before September 1st, they can, in the words of VISD, 'take small steps toward big futures.'

Pre-registration runs April 6th through the 17th at your neighborhood school. Just bring proof of address like a utility bill that has your address on it, the child's birth certificate, an immunization record, a parent's photo ID and, proof of eligibility such as proof of income or military status.

Transportation may be available too, and there are some eligibility requrements. For more information, call 361-788-9294 or visit the VISD website here.
