Thank you for entrusting your children to Austin ISD. The staff at Anita Uphaus Early Childhood Center is truly committed to providing a developmentally appropriate and rigorous learning experience for all children.  2019-2020 will be the year that we focus on dual language education for as many of our students as are willing to participate, increase the amount of inclusion time in the general educaiton classroom for children participating in PPCD (preschool program for children with disabilities) and work to expand services for children ages 0-3.  We are also thrilled to have a strong P.T.A. for the upcoming year.  It is important to us that family members feel welcome and part of the education journey of their children every step of the way.  It is with great enthusiasm and pride that I welcome all of you to the new school year.
