Day School for Little People was established in 1971 and is a non-profit organization operated by the Day School Board of Directors. The Board of Directors has final authority over all aspects of the program, unless a decision directly affects Cedar Bayou Grace United Methodist Church. Day School is a ministry of CBGUMC, and as such, spiritual growth is a key component of the goals for all children and staff. Christian beliefs will be expressed to the children, as well as the importance of faith and trust in God. Chapel will be held weekly, and education in the classrooms will include prayer recital before meals, Bible verses, and Christian songs.
Day School is licensed by Texas Health and Human Services (formerly Department of Family Protective Services), and follows the Minimum Standard Rules developed by THHS. Day School ensures the program is operated according to these high standards with the use of annual inspections, continually updated record keeping, and monitored safety practices.
Our mission is to provide a high-quality early education in a Christian based environment that enhances each child’s self-esteem and encourages a life-long love of learning. We believe by providing this environment we can stimulate growth and development in early childhood while opening the hearts and minds of our children and their families.
Day School promotes physical, social/emotional, cognitive, language, and spiritual development of every child in our program through developmentally appropriate activities and child-directed play. Our teachers provide a warm, loving, and safe environment in which all children can grow. Because children learn best through play, our day includes at least 45 mins. of center time and 45 mins. of teacher-directed and unstructured outdoor play. We also include at least 3 circle times, daily story time, and theme-related lessons and skill work (letters, numbers, shapes, and colors).
The ultimate goal of Day School Early Childhood education is to ensure that our children not only learn their ABC’s and 123’s but also the three basic truths of their young faith… God made me, God loves me, and Jesus is a friend forever.
We would love to meet you and your little one! Thank you for considering Day School for your child’s preschool experience!
