Primary School

University Primary's mission is to root students, teachers and families in the story of God's love so each person knows they are loved, they belong and they are created with purpose.

University Primary is accepting enrollment for the 2023–2024 school year for 12-month-old classes through Second Grade!

Our NAEYC accredited program runs August through May, follows NISD holidays, and is carefully planned to meet the developmental needs and learning styles of each child by using hands-on learning experiences. We provide a loving, Christian environment that offers developmentally appropriate materials and experiences, enabling each child to grow physically, socially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Large and fine motor skills are developed with the use of music and movement in the classroom, various manipulatives such as puzzles, blocks, scissors, clay, paints, and a variety of activity choices made available daily on our three playgrounds. The school day is from 8:30am to 2:30pm, and we offer morning and afternoon Extended Care to meet the needs of our families. Classroom schedules may include Chapel, Music, and Motor Skills, depending upon the age of the child, and STEM classes are included in our 3-year-old, 4-year-old, and School Age curriculum for children who attend three or more days. Library and Art are offered to 3-year-old, 4-year-old and School Age children who attend five days a week. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is a new addition to our specials classes and provides an enriching opportunity for students to explore, problem–solve and think about the world around them.

Our children learn to work as members of a group. We model sharing and respecting others while helping children gain an understanding of self so that they may enjoy and appreciate each other.

We strive for school to be a positive learning experience and encourage curiosity, questions, and discovery of God’s world.
