The Greenwood School
The Greenwood School is a home-based preschool in southwest Austin, Texas. Loving childcare is our mission and our passion. We know that some parents are searching for a comfortable, safe, home-like environment for their preschooler. Large institutions and corporations seldom provide this type of care. If you are looking for a Waldorf or Montessori preschool environment, we invite you to come see The Greenwood School. Our children enjoy two acres of Texas hill country located at 8319 Haskel Dr. just off Highway 290 West in Oak Hill, a short drive from downtown Austin. We provide year-round child care for children ages 2-5.
Our graduates continue to be successful as they move to elementary and beyond, whether that move is to a public school or a Waldorf or Montessori program. The Greenwood School's preschool program has been lovingly designed to preserve the innocence of early childhood. Each day, children are treated to hours of outdoor play in a rustic farm-like setting. We provide children with a variety of fun indoor activities and many opportunities to be creative.Greenwood children benefit from having the same teachers year after year. Our home and family atmosphere gives toddlers and preschool children a feeling of comfort, security and acceptance while providing parents with peace of mind.
Our curriculum and program activities are chosen with consideration to current scientific understanding of myelin development in the brain and nervous system. We cover all the important skills that children need to be successful in kindergarten and grade school. We are also attentive to the Law of Attraction and other more spiritual thought. We enjoy helping children learn about the attractive power of creative thought. We teach them how to use positive statements or affirmations to get through tough times. We teach them to be grateful and to focus on what they like or enjoy. We are committed to teaching children how to be happy and share that happiness with others. Happy children love school. Happy children love teachers. Happy children love learning.
