The West Austin Development Center (a not-for-profit organization) is a twenty six thousand square feet, three story, state-of-the-art preschool university. Throughout the twelve spacious classrooms in the facility, children ranging in ages from six weeks to twelve years old can be viewed interacting in a learning, laughing, loving environment. Each classroom suite is equipped with private restrooms for the children.
Our dedicated, experienced and caring staff are committed to building a solid foundation upon which children can stand firmly as they grow into life-long learners. The inpetus to learning begins at the preschool level. It is therefore our mission to make the preschool experience at West Austin a remarkable one. Students steer their way through the learning process with both self selected activities and direct teaching tools and are assisted by instructors. Preschoolers are well prepared for the academic and social challenges they are faced with as they transition from preschool to grammar school once they leave West Austin.
Monthly field trips along with varied monthly academic and cultural themes broaden our student’s learning horizons. In a ten month period, students are exposed to ten different cultures and the differences which make those cultures unique.
Our dietician prepares delicious home style meals that are both nutritionally enriched and lovingly prepared. Students practice family style eating while instructors impart proper manners and nutritional education during meal time.
