Best Preschools in Dallas

Dallas, Texas has an abundance of child care centers available to serve children from infancy to school age. However, sometimes parents are not able to find enough information about preschool programs online in order to make an informative decision.

Although there are dozens of available preschool providers in Dallas, some say there are not enough quality-rated child care options. Dallas is also on the list of the most expensive daycares in the U.S. alongside California, Washington State, Oregon, Connecticut and others. Interesting enough, some parents are left feeling like they are paying college tuition for their 1-year-olds, where a family of four can expect to pay upwards of $800/month for daycare services.


As a parent you want to find the best quality care for your child, ensuring that a provider can offer a safe, fun and enriching environment. We took the initiative and narrowed the list of available preschools down to some of the 10 best-rated daycares in Dallas.
