Texas School Ready
TSR curriculum is a thematic curriculum based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities that address the needs of the whole child. With a balance of child-initiated and teacher-facilitated activities, TSR uses themes to introduce information. Learning takes place as a child explores and manipulates real objects and events.
As they eagerly learn to be independent, toddlers are developing new skills like walking, talking, and self-discovery. Our curriculum encourages discovery by building vocabulary and exploring imagination.
The independent streak they developed as toddlers continues as always on the go two-year-olds begin to learn on their own. We provide a rich learning environment where we expand our vocabularies, express creativity, and safely discover the world around us.
"I can do it!" We build on our new confidence through integrated, hands-on activities. We use experimentation and exploration to build higher-level thinking, language, math, social, and motor skills.

Starting at age 3, children learn the basics of computers such as terminology, computer etiquette, mouse control and opening and closing programs. Children will also exercise their skills on self-paced learning games focusing on math and phonics.
Mr. Chris, the Music Man, comes bi-weekly to teach and entertain the children with songs and instruments. Use of recorded music is encouraged in all age groups. The older children have formed a choir and are taught Christian based songs and seasonal songs.
