LEARNING SHOULD BE FUN
The primary objective of our school is to help your child develop a positive attitude toward him/herself and toward everything associated with learning. Each child is gently guided into learning what he/she can do to accept him/herself and to take pride in and derive satisfaction from personal achievements. We want to build a creative foundation for a lifetime of learning. Characteristics such as self-confidence, independence, curiosity, persistence, initiative, and the ability to concentrate and organize will be developed.
Our school is interested in promoting and developing positive social skills. Building trusting relationships with peers and adults is very important. Our staff is aware of this. Our program is designed to meet the needs of each age level.
All our classroom teachers/caregivers have passed background checks and have been fingerprinted through the FBI database. Staff is also continually taking various training to be the best caregivers possible in their age groups. All staff have been trained on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Shaken Baby Syndrome, Brain Development and Child Abuse and Neglect, and First Aid.
Children are not born with social skills! We work hard in all our classrooms to help our children be able to cooperate and play with others in their space. We have set rules in the classrooms and stick to a schedule to help the children learn routines and know what to expect next.
We provide full time care for children 6 weeks old up to 5 years of age during the school year. During the summer months we also provide full time care for children up to the age of 12. For children 18 months and up we teach curriculum daily and do activities to continue to build the children’s vocabulary and social skills. All lessons are modified according to age level. Each age group builds lessons based on prior knowledge and introduces the following objectives into lesson plans:
- Reading Readiness
- Math Readiness
- Practical Life
- Motor Skills
- Differences and Similarities
- Social Skills

We pick up at five local elementary schools; Bonham, Bowie, Crockett, Lamar, and McGill. When the children arrive at the center they are served an afternoon snack, participate in center play, and outdoor play time.
This classroom is also open full time during school holidays and during the summer months.
During the summer, we also have a variety of field trips at an additional cost that are available for the children to participate in.
