The PREP School of McKinney is quickly approaching its sixth anniversary and is planning a Family Fall Festival to celebrate! This free event is open to the public and will be held Saturday, October 20th from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM at 5317 W. University Dr. The celebration will feature bounce houses, face painting, a petting zoo, family-friendly games, food, and a silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Shiloh Place McKinney. "We are thrilled to be a part of the McKinney community and what better way to say thank you than to host a family friendly event and help raise money to benefit a local non-profit here in McKinney," says owner, David Golden. "Our management team will also be available for school tours and to provide information packets as well, if you are interested in learning more about The PREP School."
The PREP School of McKinney opened its doors in November of 2013 and enrollment has been progressively growing ever since. Nestled in the back of the Wilson Creek Medical Park, directly across University from Baylor Scott & White Hospital, it is clear from the moment you first see the building that this is a school unlike any other. Once you walk in the front door, you are greeted with a magnificent view through the foyer and glass doors which overlook the outdoor classroom and splash pad. Just beyond the outdoor playgrounds is a sprawling green belt and nature area. As you walk the halls, you encounter lively hues of blue, green, and orange. You also hear the mix of music, which we all know facilitates children's development, and the joyful noises of children learning. Each classroom is stocked with developmentally appropriate toys and activities to enhance the student's learning environment as well as several award-winning curriculums. Additionally, The PREP School boasts enrichment classrooms such as an outdoor classroom, art room, an indoor gym, and a tech room with multi-touch whiteboard technology!
As word continues to spread about this state-of-the-art preschool, The PREP reports that they are now enrolling at lightning speed. " We are excited about all of the new children who have joined our PREP Family!" states PREP Director, Sarah Krist. "With high quality education at the forefront of The PREP philosophy, we are proud to be apart of these students early education.” Mrs. Krist continued.
