Providing High-Quality Early Childhood Education for More than 20 Years
The Children’s Courtyard offers high-quality early childhood education and care in beautiful home-like settings, furnished with state-of-the-art, age-appropriate learning equipment and classrooms. We have more than 60 child care schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin and Houston areas, serving children from six weeks to 13 years old.
Our educational philosophy is founded in the High/Scope philosophy, which states that children learn best by doing — through hands-on experiences with people, materials, events and ideas. A Whole Child Education approach teaches early literacy, logical thinking, problem solving, social understanding, physical coordination, creativity and positive character traits. Partnering with Scholastic and McGraw-Hill, the research-based curriculum at The Children’s Courtyard is tailored to the individual needs of each child.
Unique in the industry, The Children’s Courtyard Master Schools are run much like a child development lab in a university setting. Master Teachers at each age level train and mentor new teachers on the best practices learned from years of experience. Our Master Schools ensure that every classroom at The Children’s Courtyard has highly trained, committed professionals in charge.

Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at The Children's Courtyard (The Woodlands, TX) in March 2015.
Was called in for interview about four days after applied online, completed assesment and submitted consent to background check. Was told to wear slacks and a nice shirt. I brought a copy of my resume and references in a presentation folder and was prepared for standard interview questions after reading up on the company. I was surprised, however, when the manager asked me to talk about myself, separate from work. It surprised me because I had prepared a professional statement talking about my job experience, etc. I included a breif history of where I grew up, what I like to do and my family making sure to revolve around child care and responsibility. I was asked how much I wanted to make there and I danced around it as much as I could, we discussed the daycare discount I would be able to take for my daughter and it made the number much more desirable. I told her 12 and hour would be wonderful so I could offset the cost of childcare but with 45% discount, 10 dollars per hour was even better. I immediately took a tour of the school and got aquainted with the staff. They told me they would need to wait until the director personally submitted my paperwork to the system, and then for approval after that. I was scheduled for a trial hour the following Monday, and was able to play with two different classes. They told me to wear comfortable black pants and a solid shirt so I came in a polo and slacks. Great experience, the only thing that was hard is I never got a clear job offer, and when I asked if I had the job they said yes. So anyway, it was successful. This location was specifically looking for a full time position and I think I fit the position for them so it was a quick process. Great interview, pretty relaxing!
