Why is DKH unique?

If you are looking for more than just childcare, then you’ve come to the right place.
We are the only true preschool around that can boast the very elite standards required from being a NAEYC accredited school where our legacy and reputation live on after 40 years!

  • Each day is structured and planned to provide the most developmentally appropriate experience for our little learners.  

  • We employ and maintain the most qualified, degreed and certified teachers.

  • We provide a learning-rich environment in all of our indoor and outdoor classes.

  • Students learn through inquiry and exploration.

  • Most importantly, our students LOVE coming to DKH each day.

"I have heard only the best things about DKH. Both my mom and mother-in-law are teachers in LISD and one of my best friends is a kindergarten teacher at Old Settlers.  She has said time and again that her most prepared students are from DKH."

Lindsay Van Meter


NAEYC administers the largest and most widely recognized accreditation system for the best early childhood programs that provide a safe and nurturing environment while promoting developmentally appropriate practices for young children.  DKH Academy, the only preschool in the local area to have achieved this prestigious certification, undergoes regular and rigorous reporting and assessments to uphold NAEYC program standards. 

Best teachers.
Best practices.
Best preschool.
