Hello Cub Families!

We welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. We are excited for the start of an amazing learning journey! The Hafley Development Center is EMSISD's early childhood education center. The campus is staffed with educators trained to meet the specific needs of our youngest learners.

We recognize that school success requires a strong partnership between school and home.

We are dedicated to providing high-quality educational experiences for our Cubs while working as partners with families. Along with the entire Hafley Staff I will work to build strong relationships with families and community partners.

This year will be filled with academic and social experiences that will prepare our Cubs for a lifetime of learning.

I look forward to seeing you all very soon! As always, thank you for your support and dedication to learning in the early years.

Director of Prekindergarten

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

On the first day of school parents are welcome to walk their Cubs into the building. After the student's first day of school we ask that parents drop-off and pick-up in the parent loop. The parent loop is located in the front of the building on the far west side of the parking lot.

Parents will need to exit the vehicle to safely unbuckle and buckle Cubs in their safety seats. Name cards will be issued for display on the passenger side Sun-visor or Window.

We ask for your patience in the first days of school as we learn everyone's family vehicle.

Parents that must walk children to the door may do so and will need to park in the middle parking lanes. For the safety of students, we ask that parents hand their child to a staff member at the school entrance.

Our Vision

We are a school where educators partner with families and community members to provide experiences that enrich students' social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative abilities while nurturing their capacities to think skillfully and critically.

We believe:

  • Every student will be successful
  • Student success is a shared responsibility among school, family, and community
  • Consistent modeling of exceptional character contributes to the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors that students need to make successful choices
  • Student engagement in meaningful, authentic, work promotes a lifetime of learning
  • Commitment to teaching the whole child results in students who are capable of seeking help when needed, managing their own emotions, and problem solving difficult situations
  • In providing a safe, risk-free environment that supports and encourages all stakeholders
