Ascension Day School

Ascension Day School offers a loving, caring, and safe environment for infants and children from 12 months to 4 years old. Using a Christian curriculum, we help children develop personal and social skills, practice gross and fine motor skills, and learn foundational academic concepts. An extension of the Episcopal Church of the Ascension, our program is nestled in the heart of Lake Highlands and is easily accessible from surrounding Dallas and Richardson neighborhoods. Classes are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with an Early Risers (8:00-9:00) and Extended Day (2:00-4:00 pm) option for parents who need to take advantage of a little longer day. Check out our Facebook page for a closer look at our fun activities and sweet children.

Chapel Classes

Our Chapel classes are based on the Godly Play curriculum. Lessons are designed to draw children into each Bible story and help them discover how the stories relate to their own lives. Each week, Chapel will also include music and movement activities related to each Bible story. We are confident that these new enrichment programs, rooted in faith, will add another layer to our curriculum and the spiritual and physical development of your children.


Enrollment is currently open. A one-time registration and supply fee (which can be paid in two installments, one at enrollment, the other by August 1st) and a completed registration form will hold your spot for our fall classes. Fall classes will include a Toddlers Class (12-23 months), a Twos class (2 years old by Sept 1st), Threes class (3 years old by Sept 1st) and our new KinderPrep/Kindergarten Bridge Program, for four-year-olds and five-year-olds who will be graduating in the spring. 


We are currently enrolling for the 2018-2019 school year. Want to come check us out? Drop by any Wednesday at 10:00am for a tour.
