About Challenger School
For the parents, families and students of Austin, Challenger School offers center-based early care and education that’ll both care for students and their needs now and prepare them for the years ahead! Challenger School’s center-based environment enables a strong and structured learning culture, with the enriching curriculum and activities for students that stimulate the brain and their curiosity. Students will benefit from the socialization opportunities that come from interacting with peers of similar ages and non-family adults that’re professionals in the early education space. With a full-time schedule, as well, Challenger School allows parents to work and assume other responsibilities while their children are playing and learning amongst their peers. Children have the opportunity to get used to the natural rhythms of a daily structured learning environment with a full-time schedule, which can help smooth the transition into kindergarten and future education. The full-time schedule allows plenty of opportunities for creativity and fun, too, as the day always feels too short when you’re having fun! Challenger School also offers a mixed-age classroom and curriculum which emphasizes open-ended, tactile activities that allow children to explore however that learning activity makes the most sense to them. Mixed-age classrooms like at Challenger School encourage peer learning, asking help from each other and reinforce a sense of empathy for one’s peers. Older students will learn leadership skills and younger students have the advantage of joining a classroom that already has the building blocks of community.
