Who We Are
A Positive Learning Experience

The goal of the Little Blue Schoolhouse is to create a positive learning experience for children. An effective preschool program reflects a variety of activities: free choice and small group times, quiet periods and active times, short activities and a few longer ones to increase a child’s attention span, and careful planning to develop the child socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.

 

The Sky Doesn’t Always Have to Be Blue, the Grass Doesn’t Always Have to Be Green.
We provide a preschool program that is designed to teach children number concepts and color perception. We also teach phonics, and the children are reading basic words and doing simple math by the time they go to kindergarten. By teaching them these various skills, they build the self-confidence that is necessary for one’s emotional well-being. Children are encouraged to be creative and to think on their own. At the Little Blue Schoolhouse the grass does not always have to be green nor the sky blue. Motor skills are perfected and hand-eye coordination is taught daily. We feel that the Little Blue Schoolhouse offers the best in a well-rounded preschool program, as well as teaching fundamentals–learning how to get along with others and to share with your peers.
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.
