Welcome to Our School

Welcome to The Children’s Courtyard in Austin, TX! My name is Marissa Benitez and I am the campus director here at our Harris Branch location.

When we opened in 1997, we became the first Children’s Courtyard educational daycare in Austin. Our loving Infant Care and superior Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development.

We have an exceptional group of teachers. They receive ongoing training throughout the year, including CPR and First Aid training. As a team, we have over 61 years of experience.

We service, Bluebonnet, Pioneer Crossing and IDEA at Parmer Park Elementary Schools. Our facility includes spacious classrooms and playgrounds for each age group, two indoor playrooms and a lactation room for nursing mothers. We also offer fun and educational camps during the holidays, as well as extracurricular activities such as soccer.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.
