At Country Home, we take great pride in offering a distinctly innovative environment for our children. We do not limit our program to one teaching venue or method, but rather provide a virtual banquet of educational choices. Our wonderful facility affords us the opportunity to leave the classroom each day and explore various themed rooms. Each area provides unique opportunities and equipment for challenging hands-on learning and fun exploration into the world of science, math, computers, language development, drama, and creative arts. Our children spend fun-filled days on the move, participating in activities that stimulate their creativity and spur their imagination!
Our students participate in lots of planned activities, and we know communicating with our parents is important. Age-specific monthly Highlights showcase weekly curriculum activities. School-wide monthly newsletters notify parents of special events and other important information. Regularly scheduled parent/teacher conferences focusing on our age-specific Developmental Checklists help recognize and celebrate each child’s accomplishments. Finally, our annual holiday Open House brings school and families together for a very special evening!
Our comprehensive, theme-based Preschool curriculum focuses on providing a solid educational foundation for our young students. We keep our class groups small in order to promote individualized care and education. Our Preschool classrooms in San Antonio and Austin, both with a two-story playhouse and multiple learning centers, are carefully designed to provide a secure environment with unlimited educational opportunities and fun!
To enhance our comprehensive Preschool program, we also provide enrichment classes staffed with specialized Resource Teachers in the following areas:
Spanish: Country Home Learning Center incorporates a “whole-language” approach as our Spanish classes reflect what is currently being taught in our curriculum. Students are introduced to words and songs in Spanish in an effort to gain confidence and familiarity with a second language.
Computers: Because computer technology has become integrated with all levels of education, we feel it is an important part of our Country Home program. Our Computer Lab is equipped with eight independent computer systems and an extensive variety of software for each developmental level.
Music and Creative Movement: Our gym features a full wall of mirrors to help our children watch themselves and perfect their “moves” in our creative movement classes. These classes are specifically geared toward the gross motor developmental goals for each age group. Social skills as well as team concepts are also necessary in the execution of this healthy physical activity.
Adventure Quest: Available to our older students at our San Antonio locations, Adventure Quest in Boerne, Texas offers pony rides, inflatable water slides, a petting zoo, and an old-fashioned General Store where the children enjoy eating lunch, purchasing treats with Country Home tokens, and making special arts and crafts projects.
We know your schedules are very busy, so in order to keep things convenient for you, we provide the following programs at an additional cost. Please call your school of choice for further details.
Martial Arts: On-site private lessons are available for child physical development and enhanced discipline.
Innovative Dance Program: On-site private dance lessons are available to enhance children’s appreciation for music.
Through our wide variety of learning activities, we emphasize our most important objective: to provide our students with many opportunities to succeed every day. Frequent successes in young children promote self-confidence and a higher self-esteem, which are vital to the learning process as children grow. Our goal is to help each child become an inquisitive, happy, and confident young student.
