Opportunity School provides excellent early education and care to 149 children ages six weeks to five years old (until kindergarten-eligible) through two campuses:
The Central Campus is a part-day preschool program for 80 three-and four-year olds. Bus service is provided. Children attend morning or afternoon classes, and Extended Care is offered (limited availability) to provide a full day of learning for working families. Located inside First Presbyterian Church, 1100 S. Harrison, Amarillo, Texas 79101.
The Grand Street Campus is a full-day, year-round learning program for 69 infants, toddlers and preschoolers 6 weeks old through pre-kindergarten age. Open from 6:45 a.m. – 5:45 p.m. Nutritious meals are provided (breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.) Located inside Community of Grace United Methodist Church, 1525 N. Grand, Amarillo, Texas 79107.
Parent Education Program
Both campuses include a strong parent education program designed to equip families to support their children’s development, both during their time at Opportunity School and throughout their educational career. Monthly individual teacher/parent/child visits and regular group parent meetings provide valuable information to support adults in their parenting role.
By helping parents become their child’s best teachers, entire families become lifelong learners, and strong bonds are established between home and school.
