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 closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment. We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
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!
Are you concerned about the impact of COVID on your child’s education? You’re not alone. Now, more than ever, early education matters. We’re here to help.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Elective programs allow students to learn by exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future—while giving your family more free time on evenings and weekends. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
In this classroom, your child will make discoveries and think independently, as we prepare them for the future. The authentic Montessori curriculum enables children to learn in their own way, at their own pace, through the practical application of sensory-based and self-directed activities. Our certified Montessori teacher spends significant time with each child, helping them discover unique talents and interests. Plus, a full complement of Montessori equipment offers tangible, hands-on learning opportunities to develop children’s skills and senses.
This mixed-aged classroom (for 3- to 6-year-olds) also helps children to develop social skills and challenges them to learn to work together—while being mindful of the best interests of others.
Ask your school director for additional details.
Our School-Age classroom is a perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, where children become thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
Education: Culinary Diploma, Associate's Degree in Applied Arts
Certifications: Texas Directors Certificate, CPR/First Aid, SIDS/Shaken Baby, Health & Safety, Food Handlers Certification
