Welcome to Our School

Welcome to The Children’s Courtyard in Grand Prairie, TX! My name is Sara and I am the campus director. I bring more than 25 years of experience as a teacher and manager to my position. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you how our Infant Care, Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K and School-Age programs provide children with a unique learning environment.

We have an outstanding group of teachers! More than half of them have been with us for two years or more and many of them have been here for 10 years or more. They receive quarterly training sessions on age-specific children’s topics, as well as an all-day staff development training day twice each year.

Our building houses multiple classrooms for each age group along with two indoor play areas. We have a separate School-Age building with facilities to offer children a variety of recreational and educational activities. Since we opened in 1996, we have provided a safe, warm and welcoming learning environment for children.

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.

Call us with any questions about our Children's Courtyard educational daycare in Grand Prairie, TX and see firsthand how we are a great match for your child!

We love Mrs. Frankie, the director & Mrs. Angelica, his teacher. My son was very shy & reserved when we started. Now he smiles & runs to them when I drop him off now. 100% recommend.
