Custer Parkway Preschool opened its doors in 2006 in the education wing of West Plano Presbyterian Church. Just 18 months later, we proudly launched our second location on Teakwood Lane. CPP has stood as a leading child care provider in the Plano area for decades. In 2012, we were honored with the Annual Awards of Excellence, and since then, we have consistently been recognized as the best child care provider of the year. CPP has maintained a Texas Rising Star Certified program throughout this time, a testament to the dedication and commitment of our staff and leadership.
Our primary goal has always been to offer the best early education program to our community, and we are dedicated to achieving this goal each day.
At Custer Parkway Preschool, we are dedicated to fostering the growth, development, and well-being of every child in our care. Our mission is to provide a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that empowers young minds to explore, create, and thrive. We believe in the power of early education to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning and success.

We embrace diversity and celebrate each child’s unique qualities, ensuring that every child feels safe, valued, and inspired to reach their full potential.
