About Us

Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District operates five licensed childcare facilities, as Early Learning Centers (ELCs).

The centers are available for children of all regular full-time or regular part-time district employees. The centers provide care for children from 6 weeks to eligibility for kindergarten. Our mission is to provide an engaging environment for children to learn, grow, and thrive.


The Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D. Early Learning Center Program is designed to create a safe, wholesome environment where children may enjoy learning in a nurturing, caring atmosphere. Individuality is recognized and used as a base on which to encourage children to reach their maximum potential.


Research confirms the value of early education for young children. Our program supports effective teaching practices and opportunities for child discovery through play have been shown to lead to significant growth in children’s intellectual and social development, both of which are critical to their future academic success. Our program has implemented FrogStreet as the curriculum for the infant to three-year-old classrooms which actively engages children in thinking, reasoning, and communicating with others. The CFISD Pre-K curriculum is utilized in the four-year-old classroom to best prepare children for Kindergarten. With positive reinforcement and guidance, children acquire important skills and concepts.

The ELCs are a fee-based program. A waiting list for enrollment is maintained by the Community Programs department located in the Cy-Fair Annex building. To obtain information about joining the waiting list or enrolling, send an email to Early Learning Center.
