Welcome to The Children’s Courtyard in Austin, TX! My name is Tessa and I am the Campus Director. I have a master's degree in early childhood education with teaching certification in K-3rd grade.
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 Barbara Jordan, Bluebonnet, and Pioneer Crossing 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.

I have been with The Children's Courtyard for four years. I started out as a teacher but my passion for education motivated me to become a manager. I also have two teenage children who keep me on my toes. In my spare time I love to spend time with my children and sew.
