By the 2025-26 school year, San Antonio’s Southeast Side will have 350 new early education spots thanks to a new Pre-K 4 SA learning center under construction.

According to state records, the 53,000-square-foot building has a $30 million price tag.

Most seats will be free to families in the area making less than $80,000 a year, like at all its centers, according to Pre-K 4 SA, the city-funded early childhood education program.

The new facility is being built on eight acres donated to the city through a private-public partnership with local Caterpillar dealer the Holt Group, headquartered next door to the construction site at 3510 S WW White Rd.
