About Children's Courtyard
The first few years are a joy to behold and the learning and fun that happen within them is formative for success ahead! Children's Courtyard is a center-based child care provider serving children, parents and families in Austin. Centers like Children's Courtyard are popular choices with families that value getting the best of early educational enrichment, in the form of stimulating activities and a peer set of similarly-aged children, along with an environment that feels like formal school and can help smooth the transition ahead. Children's Courtyard moreover offers a full-time schedule, making it convenient for parents to drop their children off in the morning and know they’ll have plenty of time for everything else in the day they need to take care of. With a full-time schedule, as well, teachers and staff have the luxury of getting to know students in-depth, day in and day out. Parents can have the confidence that their children are growing, learning and playing in a structured environment. In addition, Children's Courtyard teaches a mixed-age curriculum that facilities peer learning and communal growth. In a mixed-age classroom like at Children's Courtyard, students receive open-ended, stimulating activities and are encouraged to move at their own pace. Younger students receive help and encouragement from older students, boosting their confidence and self-esteem, and older students get to lend a helping hand, teaching empathy and the joy of giving. Mixed-age learning replicates the best of a family or neighborhood group structure as children socialize with peers a little ahead or a little behind their own development path.
