"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
Baby Barn (12 -17 months)
Infants grow and learn every day. Around the Clock Child Care Center provides a safe and nurturing “home away from home” where infants can explore and make new discoveries. Young children learn through play, and we are designed to provide infants with skills that serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning. We appreciate you trusting us with your infant’s care and education, and we’re committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your baby.
Toddlers & Twos
Our Toddlers and Twos are busy! Throughout the day, they do art projects, play dress up, do puzzles, read plenty of books, run around outside, sing songs, eat lots of healthy food, and so much more while having FUN and LEARNING through PLAY. And of course, a major goal of our two year old classroom that every parent looks forward to: potty training!
YOUNG SPROUTS Farm to Childcare Project
The Toddlers and Twos participate in our Young Sprouts Farm to Childcare Project. The purpose of the project is to teach young students about the importance of farming, to grow your own fruits and vegetables, to care for the earth and to eat healthy.
Young children are natural gardeners. They are curious and like to learn by doing, and like to play in the dirt. They will learn to connect with nature, do something real with tangible results, and enjoy both the process and product.

Threes and Pre-K (ages 4 and 5)
On our Way to K with O.W.L. Curriculum!
Our preschool students learn SO much! Our teachers work extremely hard to prepare your child for Kindergarten. Both the Pre-K and 3 year old classrooms are involved with the Texas School Ready! Project which will allow us to provide so many wonderful things for our young students. This project is designed to ensure we have the training and tools necessary to be successful. Through this program, we utilize the state-approved O.W.L. Curriculum, which provides lesson planning directly aligned with the State Pre-K Standards. We also benefit from associated materials to create an active and engaging environment where your child can learn through PLAY.
In addition to the material assets, your child’s teachers have
attended over 58 hours training last year which included classes on:
Effective Read Alouds
And SO much more
They will continue their education throughout the upcoming year. They will also have a mentor who comes into the classroom to give them pointers and ideas and helps them set goals to become highly trained and effective teachers.
We are so proud to have your child be a part of our Pre-K program as a great foundation for their continuing education.
Feel free to visit TexasOwl.com to learn more about our curriculum. This website has interactive books that we use in the classroom so parents can log in and read these books with their child.
Please have your child to class on time. Morning Curriculum Session begins at 8:30 am!
We have fun and may get messy. Bring your child in old comfortable clothes and athletic-type shoes.
Kids love and NEED outdoor play. We go outside every day that is over 40 degrees and not raining. Please dress them accordingly.
Children must be fully potty trained to enroll in our Threes and Pre- K classrooms.
