About Us

Wonder, Explore and Learn

Remember the last time you looked at something in wonderment? It was something so unique and interesting that it stopped you in your tracks. It is wonderment that makes children associate learning with fun and leads to a successful approach to school as they grow up. We aim to create those moments of wonderment every day in our school activities and curriculum.

You’ll find an amazing group of teachers and caregivers at our preschool in Austin, Texas.  Each day they focus on providing loving care and exciting learning activities for your child.   You’ll be able to set a schedule (full time or part time) that works with your family’s busy life.  Structured learning balanced with exploring in our Discovery Centers, tasty meals and snacks and lots of outside playtime, ensure a fun-filled day, every day at Children’s Network.

We’re not only educators but we’re parents, too. We know first-hand how much you want to stay connected with your child and what he or she is learning. Together, we chart a course for your child with an on-going dialogue to share ideas and progress. In short, you’ll be constantly informed about the development and progress of your child.

Keeping children safe during their day at Children’s Network is of utmost importance. Our teachers establish solid guidelines in the classroom to involve children in a world of exploration and stimulating learning.

It’s time to think about school. Whether you’re wondering when your child should start preschool or how to select the right child care, we’d love to meet your family and show you how much fun your child will have with us. Many first-time parents ask us how the childcare enrollment process works so here is a quick overview to answer your questions.

Step 1 – Check Enrollment Availability

If you are interested in enrolling your child at Children’s Network, the first thing to do is to contact the school. The phone number is 512-834-9526.  Alternatively, you can click this Contact Us link. Have your questions ready as we are excited to learn more about your family’s needs and how we can help to support them.  We are here to help you through this very important process, making it as easy and informative as possible.

Step 2 – Visit our School

You will be invited to visit the school and meet with the School Director. You’ll see the classrooms, meet your child’s teacher and have time to observe any portions of the day you would like. We will do everything in our power to accommodate the start date that meets your needs. If there is a waiting list, you can secure the next available space by paying a registration fee and placing your name on the list. We will continue to stay in touch and when an opening becomes available, the Director will contact you immediately.

Step 3 – Parent Checklist & Free Discovery Day

There are so many neat things to see and great teachers to meet that we want to make sure you remember to evaluate all of the things important to you. Use our checklist to make sure you review all the important areas.  We welcome all interested families to enjoy a complimentary Discovery Day.  This is your child’s chance to “test drive” our school for a day.  We assure you they will not be disappointed!

Preschool Checklist

Prior to your child’s first day with Children’s Network, you and your child will be invited to visit your child’s new classroom. This will allow your child to get acquainted with his/her new friends and teacher. This is a very important transition for our parents and children. We go out of our way to make sure every new child feels welcome.

What I Want as Preschool Parent

Why Children’s Network Early Learning Center?

Quality, Caring Teachers I Trust

“I want my child to feel loved and to feel “special.” I want teachers who are chosen not only for their education and teaching skills but also for their love of children. They should be trained and certified to care for my child’s safety and well-being.”

Quality of School

“I want the school to be warm and inviting, in good repair and condition, and conductive to a positive learning environment. There should be a variety of activities to give my child a well-rounded experience (school, playground, library, educational toys, arts and crafts, etc.).”

Health and Nutrition

“ The school should offer a variety of healthy foods to my child. It is important that my child actually “likes” the food, so that he or she will actually “eat” the food. I want my child to experience daily physically activities.”

Convenience, Flexibility & Availability

“My child’s school must be open year-round with extended hours so that I can drop off my child early or pick later, when necessary. I would like the opportunity to choose flexible schedule to suit my family’s needs. I want access to visit my child during his or her day. When my child graduates to Elementary School, I would like him/her to have a safe, supervised and fun place to go, after school, and on school breaks.”

Communication

“I expect open and honest communication about my child with the option to be able to talk to someone at the school throughout the day. I would like reports, newsletters or e-mails on a regular basis. I want to be informed about my child’s progress, behavior and socialization through Parent Teacher Conferences along with the opportunity to offer feedback through an annual Parent Survey.”

Safety

“There must be policies and procedures in place to ensure my child’s safety and well-being at all times. I need to have peace of mind each time I leave my child.”

We listen to our families to provide a solid foundation for positive and meaningful early educational experiences for their children.

Ultimately whether you choose us or a different preschool, we want to make sure you make the best decision for your family. We are always here to answer any of your questions. Give us a call at 512-252-1589 or fill out the contact us form. We’re parents, too and would love to help.
