About Clifton school

Thank you for considering The Clifton School for your child’s early childhood education journey. All of us here would be delighted to have your child and your family join us.

The Clifton School is licensed with The State of Texas' Department of Family and Protective Services and holds a permanent license to operate a quality preschool on site. Being a licensed preschool means that we maintain high quality standards and insist on additional periodic training of our staff. All staff are required to complete 30 hours of Orientation, be certified in Child C.P.R. and First Aid, have a criminal background check as well as a FBI fingerprint check and they must complete an additional 24 hours of training annually.

Our Director would love to answer any questions or discuss any concerns you may have. She is available for conferences with parents of enrolled students and to families considering to join The Clifton School. You may contact The Clifton School @ 972-416-4000.

Our Mission

The Clifton School is guided by ONE LEADING PHILOSOPHY - To provide the highest level of early childhood education in a safe and secure environment that nurtures individual needs of each and every child.

We do that by abiding to our MISSION:

  • Partner with Parents to offer a continuity of care between home and school by familiarizing ourselves with each child’s individual needs.
  • Educate each child as a unique individual and provide them a safe and secure learning environment that allows them to grow socially,
    emotionally, physically and intellectually.
  • Recruit highly professional staff and train them continually.
  • Make a difference in the community we serve by providing opportunities for our families, staff and children to give back.

How do we deliver MORE?

  • We focus on a child’s unique learning needs
  • We hire experienced staff and train them consistantly
  • We partner with parents on every front
  • We hire well trained and experienced staff

Ultimately, we encourage learning, exploration, imagination and creativity-all with the end goal of ensuring your child is more than prepared emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually for that next chapter in early life whether it’s private or public elementary school.


The Clifton School is under the guidance of the Preschool Board. The board works in an advisory capacity to the Preschool Director.
