Sweet Briar Child Development Center opened in 1961 when Mrs. Ellen Smith recognized the need for childcare in South Austin. The Sandra Campus was the first childcare center to open south of the river in Austin! In 2013 our Woodway Village Campus opened in Southeast Austin in the Woodway Village Apartments. We are proud of our long history as a quality certified learning center in South Austin. Our Commitment to Quality: Our centers have achieved the highest quality certifications. We have a 4 STAR rating from Texas Rising Star, a statewide certification program. We actively collaborate with The United Way of Austin in their Success by 6 School Readiness initiative. Our quality rating allows us to participate in the Austin Independent School District Pre-K partnership. This partnership allows our center to be recognized as an AISD Pre K campus.
