Welcome to the Tarleton Day School

Founded in 1957, The Tarleton Day School is a private, independent preschool with no religious affiliation. The school was organized by educational professionals to provide a superior learning environment for boys and girls encountering their first academic experience. Our curriculum is designed for children from preschool through first grade with a focus on nurturing each child’s individual learning capabilities. Tarleton’s focus is on building the fundamental academic habits that have proven, year after year, to prepare children for the challenges they will face in the future.

Most importantly, always remember, there’s no place like home… except Tarleton!

What Our Parents are Saying
“We enrolled our son at Tarleton as soon as he was eligible and thought the transition would be difficult for him, but by the second day, he was already excited about his morning and going to school.  His teacher told us that her goal was to make the students “love school” that would carry them through their education, and that has absolutely been our experience.  Our son loves Tarleton, his teachers and his classmates and I know that experience will stay with him.”
