The preschool years are a critical time in a student’s education.  The learning experiences during these years provide a foundation that guide children academically, socially, and emotionally. Students come to class with vastly different abilities and experiences, and we want them all to experience early success academically and socially. Children’s learning and intellectual growth are affected by the specific experiences they have in a preschool classroom.  The Galena Park Independent School District’s Early Childhood Department is committed in making these the best possible experiences for all students.
