Pre-Kindergarten registration will open on August 3rd for eligible New Braunfels ISD children. If your child will be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2023, AND meet state and federal pre-k eligible requirements, they may register to be a student at Lone Star Early Childhood Center.
NBISD also has paid tuition spots available in our 4-year-old program. Please note, that once a student is enrolled in NBISD Pre-K, school attendance is not optional. This is not a drop-in or day care program.
To meet eligibility for Pre-Kindergarten at no cost, a student must qualify for at least ONE of the following criteria:
- is unable to speak and comprehend the English language; or
- is economically disadvantaged, which means a student eligible to participate in the national free or reduced-price lunch program; or
