Welcome! We are The Children's Courtyard team located on William Cannon, an AdvancEd accredited private preschool in Austin, TX. We thrive to provide a safe, nurturing and education driven environment for our students.
During this time, safety and healthy practices continue to be some of our top priorities in our school. We have implemented temperature checks, hand washing and sanitation procedures and mask wearing for all of our teachers to keep all of our staff, students and their families safe and healthy.
Our school offers Infant Child Care, Toddler, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and School Age programs. We are a Texas Education Agency PreSchool of Excellence designee, recognized for successfully preparing children for Kindergarten! Our teachers are equipped with iPads in the classroom in order to keep our families updated throughout the day with our mobile app. We also have camera views in all of our classrooms and playgrounds.
We have an open-door policy and are always available to speak with parents regarding the care and development of their children. Majority of our teachers have over five years of experience with The Children’s Courtyard. We have an incredible team of teachers who are educated, loving and creative. It is a true pleasure seeing them work with the children and helping them grow on daily basis. We also have an on-site chef who creates homemade, healthy meals.
Since our school opened in 2001, we have provided a warm and welcoming learning environment for children and we would like you to become a part of our school family. Call us today to schedule a tour of The Children’s Courtyard at William Cannon!
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.

My name is Nicole Rivera-Macias and I am happy to be a part of your CCY family. I have worked in education for almost 15 years, starting my career in ECE as an assistant infant teacher at the UT CDC. After graduating, I worked at a museum facilitating educational programs for children K-12, but early childhood called me back and I've been working with children five and under ever since, specifically toddlers, and 2's. I love drawing, spending time with my husband and son, and all things Texas.
