About Thompson Elementary Koala Kare
Thompson Elementary Koala Kare is a center-based child care option for the parents and families of Houston. Students at Thompson Elementary Koala Kare will benefit from the stable, school-like learning environment that replicates the best of what students will experience in the years ahead without asking too much of the little ones too quickly. At a center like Thompson Elementary Koala Kare, students will benefit as well from the manifold socialization opportunities that come with having so many peers of similar ages and an enriching, stimulating curriculum. Houston parents also have the opportunity to enroll in a full-time schedule at Thompson Elementary Koala Kare. The full-time schedule gives students the maximum opportunity to learn in a structured, professional environment, around adults they’ll form close bonds with and peers they'll learn, play and laugh with! The full-time schedule also allows parents to have those precious large, repeated blocks of time to work and get things done while their children are cared for in a learning environment. In addition, Thompson Elementary Koala Kare teaches a mixed-age curriculum that facilities peer learning and communal growth. In a mixed-age classroom like at Thompson Elementary Koala Kare, 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.
