Childcare (Early Learning Centers)

General Information

Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District operates six licensed childcare facilities, as ELC’s (Early Learning Centers).

The centers are available for children of all regular full-time or regular part-time district employees. The centers provide care for children from 6 weeks to eligibility for kindergarten. Our goal is to provide children with an environment that is nurturing, safe, clean, and where they are encouraged to grow as unique individuals. By offering developmentally appropriate activities, we allow children to learn at their own pace and in ways which are best for individual needs.


The Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D. Early Learning Center Program is designed to create a safe, wholesome environment where children may enjoy learning in a nurturing, caring atmosphere. Individuality is recognized and used as a base on which to encourage children to reach their maximum potential.


The program offers a curriculum committed to establishing and maintaining a positive and stable environment for all children involved. Children will learn more about themselves, others, and the world around them. The program is sensitive to the needs of the children in all areas of development: social, physical, emotional and intellectual. We welcome our parents to share any information and ideas they have, as we value them as resources who have an abundance of knowledge.

The ELCs are fee-based programs. A waiting list for enrollment is maintained by the office of community programs located in the CyFair Annex building.
