Upbring to Open Private Faith-Based Preschool in Austin

Austin, Texas – March 24, 2017 – Upbring announced that it will open a private, faith-based preschool at 3407 Red River Street in Austin. Upbring School of Arts and Sciences – Central Austin Campus is currently enrolling students for the fall 2017 semester.

Dr. Andrew Benscoter, vice president of education and innovation at Upbring, said the preschool is part of the agency’s strategic focus on creating brighter futures for all children through education.

“Our research shows that education is one of five key markers of every child’s wellbeing,” Benscoter said. “Upbring School of Arts and Sciences will provide a safe, inclusive place for children to tap into their talents, develop appropriate social skills and prepare to enter kindergarten ready to learn.”

Teachers at the new school will deliver a curriculum rooted in faith and driven by innovative teaching methods that integrate the latest technology-based tools. Parents can expect individual learning plans designed around their child’s needs, as well as family support services, such as parenting classes and job-placement resources.
