Houston Preschool Curriculum

At The Banff School, our "Bear Cubs" (3 and 4-year-old students), are learning, growing, and readying their minds for our college-preparatory program. We offer enrollment for PreK-12th grade, all on one campus...so you can rest assured that you've found a place to call home for your child's education through graduation. 

Our Houston preschool curriculum, Bear Cub program, gives students the opportunity to develop in a loving environment designed to foster their cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. This isn't just a daycare program... We work with our students to prepare them for success as they begin their education journey with us.

  • Counting by 2s, 5s and 10s
  • Using advanced fine and gross motor skills

Our teachers prepare our students for success in Kindergarten through a curriculum that:

  • Develops firm social skills by learning to share and cooperate with others
