  • CPR/First Aid Training
  • Criminal history background check
  • FBI Fingerprint check

Beautiful babies

We are excited about being apart of your child’s life as they learn and grow! 

We are not only thrilled but honored to be a part of your baby’s life in such a critical year. 

Their first year is so important and we thank you for entrusting us

to love and teach your child.  The children in the nursery have stable, consistent routines based on their own schedules for eating, resting, and playing. 

Though this year may look a little different, we are looking forward to

a wonderful time together while being safe!

terrific Toddlers

Toddlers thrive on routines and that is what we will be working on in class. 

We will assist them in developing their skills such as learning to use a cup, eating with utensils, resting on a nap mat and so much more. The toddler programs provide a warm, nurturing atmosphere in which teachers play and talk with children as they care for their needs. The teachers care for children in a manner that assists them in developing trust in their surroundings and in their caregivers. Toddlers are encouraged to develop independence while maintaining a sense of security through encouragement and activities centered on monthly themes centered on developmental milestones which include multiple sensory activities and outdoor play.

Talented twos

By the age of  two, your child is talking, walking, climbing, jumping, running and bustling with energy. Your child now has a growing vocabulary and acquires new words on a regular basis. She/he can sort shapes and colors and may even show an interest in potty training. As your little one grows more independent, she/he may show signs of defiance as she/he begins to push boundaries and explore the world around her/him. Our low classroom ratios provide the perfect opportunity for your child to thrive and be successful.

Thriving threes

At three years of age, children begin to develop unique and different personalities. They begin to share and take turns playing with other children.  Temper tantrums are less frequent and children begin to show feelings in socially acceptable ways.

At this age, children are extremely active, mobile and learn in physical ways. Children are walking, running, kicking and throwing. They are exploring their world and picking up new skills, like kicking a ball or riding a tricycle. Three-year-olds are naturally active, so we provide ample chances for your child to practice and build on these skills.

fabulous fours and fives

Our Fours and Fives classes are the Big Kids on Campus! 

The daily activities focus on units of study that are interesting and meaningful to young children and provide opportunities in both group and individual learning settings. Science experiments, stories, music, language experiences and unit study discussions take place in groups. Children choose learning center activities in which they may work alone, in pairs, or in small groups. Teachers facilitate learning by providing experiences for the children to explore and be successful as they move throughout the classroom.

As a faith-based center, Manchaca UMC CDC believes in nourishing spiritual development in young children. Weekly chapel times are scheduled September through May for all children as the Chapel Teacher introduces the children to Christian values and beliefs through Bible stories, songs and finger plays. Psychologist Dr. Loyd J. Thomas cites the benefits of a spiritual life. Children develop compassion, patience, kindness, self-awareness, self-acceptance, understanding knowledge and wisdom. Thomas notes the most important benefit is the loss of fear.
