Children of The Woodlands is celebrating its 40th Anniversary all year long! To honor such a historic achievement, our school t-shirts this year are a vintage design similar to some of our first shirts!

When Children of The Woodlands began, classrooms were named different balloon colors, such as the Red Balloon class or the Blue Balloon class. The children holding balloons on the shirts references the original classroom balloon names!

Do any former students remember their balloon color? 🎈🎈🎈

Swinging is one of the favorite activities that children engage in while on our 123 Playground. Did you know that being on the swings is one of the best ways children can develop their sensory system and spatial awareness? Swinging also helps children develop their core muscles and balance.

What is your child's favorite activity/feature on a playground?

While classrooms may look bare over the summer, we have a display classroom to help prospective parents and students envision what they will see once school starts in the fall. Our classrooms are center based and focus on having a print rich environment with a lot of hands-on experiences for children. Some of our everyday literacy and math activities include shared reading and writing, letter and number recognition, graphing, independent reading, and independent writing. We incorporate the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum and Neuhaus Education strategies to promote literacy in all age groups.

Process art is a hallmark of COTW and illustrates that we believe exploration and experiencing different media is more important for children than a product where everyone’s artwork looks the same.

We have limited spots available so please call 281-297-5959 or email [email protected] for more information or to arrange a tour.

Students at Children of The Woodlands have daily opportunities for unstructured play time on our playgrounds. Through running, jumping, climbing, sliding, and swinging, children are developing their gross motor skills (large muscle skills). Students not only are having fun, but by practicing these skills, it helps children successfully participate in more complex physical skills as they get older.

Teachers send portfolios home with each child at the end of the school year. Families enjoy flipping through the various art pieces and pictures to see how much their child has grown throughout the year.

Use the portfolio as talking points with your child! What colors do you see? Textures? Shapes?

We want to hear from you! What is your favorite part of the yearly portfolio?

Over the next couple of weeks we will look back at memorable moments from this past school year!

We ended the year with some fun “Big Art Activities” that were completed on our outdoor classroom. This space is available for teachers to use to complete messy projects or a place to bring a blanket and read books. The Butterflyfish class enjoyed fly swatter splatter painting!

Another #funnyfriday quote from a current three year old!

My favorite thing about my teacher is: "She walks backwards to lead the class so we can see her."

Walking backwards while singing, counting, and supervising is one of the many super powers teachers have!

COTW is ending the year strong with great parent feedback. Read Jessica's testimonial below!

"We’re a true second-generation family at Children of The Woodlands. My sister and I are proud graduates, and now we’ve both sent all our own children through the program, 30+ years later! My family came to COTW for the Christian education and we stay for so much more: the loving care of every teacher and staff member, the quality instruction, the phenomenal communication, and the impeccable care taken to ensure a fun, uplifting preschool experience for our entire family. During Covid in particular, we’ve felt safe, informed, included, guided, and supported - which was wonderful not only for our 2-year-old, but also for my older children, my husband and me too. The comfort and support of this caring community means even more in 2020-2021 than ever before.

There are countless exemplary preschool programs in The Woodlands, but I will continue to choose Children of The Woodlands for each and every one of my little people."
