Frisco ISD offers a three-hour daily pre-kindergarten program at the Early Childhood School (ECS). Students must be four years of age on or before September 1 of the target school year.
The program is free for qualifying students and busing is provided from the student’s home elementary school. A limited amount of space is also available to students whose families do not meet the requirements to attend for free. In that case, transportation to and from school is the responsibility of the parent.

Enrollment for the tuition-supported program continues year-round when space is available.
