My son is in the infant room and my daughter attended for a year before starting school, she still loves going back to visit! She learned so much in the time she was there, I was amazed! I am always made aware of any concerns or milestones with my son, they really love them like their own here

I just want let everyone in Bastrop County know if you are in need of daycare, look up Little Blue Schoolhouse, they are the best. My grandchildren attended for 3 years until they all started school. The staff will take great care of your little ones and always seem to go above and beyond to gain your trust with your little ones!

Little Blue Schoolhouse has been such a blessing for our family! They were there when we needed them in a pinch because we had to leave our day care for a really dramatic reason. It was an answer to a prayer! LBS has continued to be consistent for our boys. Since I have twins, I absolutely needed help potty training them and the staff has been wonderful! Their teachers write real lesson plans. Our children are learning the alphabet and their numbers and shapes and colors, fun songs, how to share and use your manners and more. They get to play outside, take naps, eat snacks, and splash around in the sprinklers in the summertime. It's so cool that we get one free week a year because we always try to take a week's vacation with our boys. I love the director and the assistant director. They are very personable and available anytime I have questions. Little Blue Schoolhouse and the staff will always have a special place in our hearts!

LBS has been a true blessing to me and my family over the years. My sons spent their early childhood here. My granddaughter now attends LBS and is learning the same valuable lessons that a generation before enjoyed. I am also proud to say that I once worked here at LBS. One of the perks of my granddaughter going here is the hugs and smiles of the students that I taught. The atmosphere of LBS is one of joy and encompasses the value of family. I highly recommend LBS, it is a great place for children to flourish.

Why Choose Us
Inquiry-based Curriculum

LBS incorporates an inquiry based curriculum. The teachers have set themes, but use “teachable moments” so the children can ask questions and learn to think creatively.

Spanish and American Sign-language

Our teachers instruct the children on basic Spanish. They learn colors, numbers, and letters in Spanish. Basic words are taught in ASL, as early as infancy. ASL has become an important learning skill in early childhood education. Research shows that babies that learn to sign actually have better vocabularies when they learn to speak. When an adult signs, they say the word, also.  Baby sign gives the child a head start to language acquisition.

Hands-on Learning

Our curriculum incorporates “hands on learning”. Life skills are just as important as academic skills. When a child learns from doing, he retains more information. The process is much more important than the actual product.

Four Separate Play Areas

There are 4 separate outdoor play areas. Each area has the proper age-appropriate equipment for that particular group of children. This includes swings, slides, a home-life area, an art area and a music section. There is also a basketball area.

Safe Environment

Lbs is inspected annually by the Texas Department of Health and by the Bastrop Fire Department. TDPRS also conducts unannounced inspection visits. Child Care Systems also monitors and inspects the center frequently. The playground is inspected daily and monthly for hazards. The fall zones are covered in absorbent materials and are maintained daily. In addition, there are security cameras which can be monitored remotely live or on time-delay.

Computer Skills

There are computers with high-speed Internet connections for the children. They are introduced to the basics of the computers and are monitored when they are using them.

Learning Centers

Individual centers are set up in the classroom for hands-on learning. The centers are dramatic play, science, reading, blocks, puzzles and an art center.

Low Staff-to-child Ratio

LBS goes above and beyond the Texas Minimum Standards and maintains a much better staff-to-child ratio. Smaller classes mean a better, more safe environment for learning.
