I live in Orange County California. So many of my friends have moved to Texas and I will be joining them this summer...I think.
I have a 4 year old that is currently enrolled in preschool. Schools are pretty expensive here but I managed to get a church run school and pay $600/month. That is pretty cheap.
She will be going to Pre-K in September and I need to have an idea what tuition is like over there. I am looking at La Petite, Kindercare, Primrose schools to start.
Anyone have any information?

Also the norm here is to graduate at Pre-K before moving to Kinder. I see a lot of schools having both a Pre-K and Kinder. Does this mean there is not Pre-K graduation?

My son has been to a kindercare and a kids r kids. kinder care for $720/month, kids r kids is for $800/month.
They are both good but it'll depend on the specific location you choose.

Hello msshelly11,

The prices quoted by "From SoCal to Houston" are about right. Some of the schools here have Pre-K and Kindergarten. There is a graduation ceremony. Some of the schools have before and afterschool care in house. There can be a waiting list because it is CHEAP! You can also contact the school district for information on the programs where you think you might want to reside. I work with a lot of people moving to Texas. Let me know if I can help you.

You are welcome. Please feel free to ask me any questions, we've been in the same situation and toured lots of daycares.

$800/mo. is a good conservative estimate. I was at one time paying twice that for two. I think the youngest was more expensive, though, so you might get by on slightly less than that for one in pre-k. Daycare/pre-k is expensive, particularly for two kids, but I never felt like I was throwing money away, so there's that. Good luck.

Lots of people moving from Socal to Houston, huh? I have visited there and, if not for the housing prices, that's almost hard to believe. I have lived in Houston for a while and like it here, but I hope you don't value the weather and beaches too much. Those are two things you will miss.
