Our purpose at The Towne Creek School is to provide a warm, nurturing, supportive and academically challenging environment, where children feel safe, secure, loved and respected; where they are given opportunities to develop to their fullest potential in all areas – social, emotional, physical and cognitive; where parents and staff work together as a team to ensure that we provide an experience that goes beyond the expected, for the children, parents and staff of this program.
We would be honored to share our vision with you. We invite you to visit our program and discuss the goals, philosophy and curriculum. Please call us at 281-499-8030 or come visit at 3311 Williamsburg Lane, across from WalMart on Highway 6.
The Towne Creek School was founded in 1983 to provide the highest quality early childhood program and afterschool experience in a secure and nurturing environment. The two-acre campus, located between Missouri City and First Colony, provides a unique developmental program designed for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, as well as a Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten program. In addition, a dynamic Afterschool program for school-aged students and a Summer Camp program are offered.
What Makes The Towne Creek School Unique?
Our Staff/Longevity of the Program
The Towne Creek School has been directed by the same owner, an educator for over 30 years, throughout the course of its history. The majority of our lead teachers hold degrees in Early Childhood Education or a related field. The teachers’ solid qualifications and dedication to their field have a direct effect on their longevity with the program, as many have been with the school over ten years. This strong foundation of child development gives our school such a wealth of resources from which to plan an exciting and challenging program for our children. It not only enhances the quality of education we provide, but allows opportunities for authentic assessment and individualization of the curriculum.
Our facility provides a spaciousness inside and out for a child to feel the freedom to explore, to create, and to learn in a way that is friendly and encouraging, and free of stress. It is amazing how the physical environment can affect a child’s learning, not to mention his/her emotional self-assuredness. This is important in the classroom, on the playground, in the gym, in the library, and when he/she walks in the front door every day. A welcome, inviting environment holds the key to a positive, happy road to a successful learning experience.
Approach to Education/Curriculum
The teachers share the common goal of developing in each child a positive attitude toward him/herself and toward learning. We focus on the growth and development of the whole child — the social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills. We provide a creative, hands-on approach, while maintaining the belief in a solid foundation through core curriculum areas. In addition to teacher-directed activities, we provide an atmosphere in which the children do much learning and discovering on their own. Our goal is to develop in each child a positive self-esteem, positive social skills, a love of learning, and an opportunity to learn to his/her greatest potential. Small class sizes and carefully selected teaching materials allow us to meet the individual needs, interests, capabilities and learning styles of the children.
Enrichment and Special Events
In addition to our academic curriculum, we place a high priority on enriching and enhancing the child’s perspective, to go beyond the classroom on a consistent basis.
Our music class is taught by Mr. Jeff Tedder who is certified by Texas in Music Education and who has created a program where children can develop sensitivity to beat and meter; singing skills; musical intelligence, memory and vocabulary; motor skills; sight reading skills; instrument etiquette; and patterns for social play.
The classes are an energetic mix of movement, finger plays, pretend, and fund with instruments.
Two and Three year olds have class twice a month during the school year.
PreK and Kindergarten have class once a week.
Realizing the importance of health and fitness, our curriculum provides for outdoor play or gym time twice per day. In addition to general play, the children participate in Motor Development twice per week in the gym with our gym teacher. The teacher plans activities that promote the growth and development of the specific age group with whom he/she is working at the time.
is offered to the three-year classes, Pre-Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten.
Art, Science, Computer Rotation
The Pre-Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten students attend these classes on a rotating basis, with specialized teachers for each of these subject areas.
In the younger classes, art and science are integrated into the curriculum on a daily basis, and computers are available to all preschool classes.
Special programs such as Fall Fun, Snow Day, Mother Goose visit, Mad Science, and other events brought to school allow the children the opportunity to engage in the activities, to be part of the experience, to interact in a way that he/she cannot do in a typical classroom setting.
In order to provide a positive learning experience for our children, a close relationship between home and school is vital. High priority is placed on communication between teachers and parents, and between administration and parents. Each family is a valued member of The Towne Creek family. Opportunities are available throughout the year for parents to be involved as much as possible.
