Keeping Families Connected

Our families mean the world to us and keeping them connected is one of our main goals. That’s why we created SproutAbout®, our exclusive family communications app that features live streaming video of the classroom and much, much more.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to The Children’s Courtyard in Austin, TX! My name is Heather and I am the campus director of the beautiful Spicewood location.

Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool programs, and a wonderful School-Age program. Our curriculum has been designed to meet the developmental needs of each age group and our programs allow time for skill-based learning as well as play. Our teachers attend ongoing training courses in all areas of child development and provide quality care with enriched programs across all age groups.

We create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan monthly events for our families, so they have an opportunity to meet each other and enjoy the exciting activities our teachers plan on a daily basis.

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.

I encourage you to schedule a tour of our beautiful Children's Courtyard educational daycare at Spicewood in Austin, TX. Come see all that we have to offer your family!
