Each classroom will spend their days involved in developmentally appropriate learning
centers, circle times, instructional times, one on one time with the teacher, indoor
& outdoor playtimes, story times, and meal times. It is our goal to provide the
safest and most developmentally appropriate, Christ-centered environment for your
Infant and Toddler Program
Our infant and toddler programs are designed to be a home away from home for your
baby. Our desire is for you to feel as though your child is being cared for just
as if you were the one caring for him/her. We will provide a safe, nurturing environment
where all of your child’s needs are met promptly. The teachers will provide each
parent with a daily schedule of how your child will spend his/her day. Even though
the teachers in these classrooms have a schedule, the individual needs of the children
tend to guide the schedule and come before any scheduled activities planned.
It is FPS policy to provide a comfortable place with a seat within the classroom
or facility that enables our mothers to breastfeed their child. FPS encourages the
right for mothers to breastfeed and/or provide breast milk for their child while
in our care.
Preschool - 2 Year Old Program
This is the year of beginning to grow independence, learn manners, socializing with
friends, and potty training. Your child will spend his/her days involved in both
group and individual playtime. Learning how to share and socialize with others is
given special attention. Each classroom will have its own schedule. The teachers
will provide each parent with a daily schedule of how your child will spend his/her
day. Children are lovingly encouraged and taught how to use the potty, but are also
diapered on an as needed basis. We understand that learning how to go potty is a
developmental stage in a child's life.
Preschool - 3 Year Old Program
This is year of independence, educational growth, and making friends. They will
be introduced to understanding print and letter/sound associations. Your child will
spend their day in both individual and group curriculum time which will implement
developmentally appropriate learning centers, circle time, instructional time, one
on one time with teachers, and story time. Now that your child has reached the pre-school
age there is a greater emphasis on language development, literacy, mathematics,
science, social studies, creative arts, social and emotional development, and physical
health and safety.
Kindergarten Prep Program - 4 Year Old Program
Pre-School 4 year old program: This is the year where we see children blossom in
their understanding of print and letter/sound associations. It is also during this
time where children begin making choices and charting their thoughts and feelings.
The focus on language development, literacy, mathematics, science, social studies,
creative arts, social and emotional development, and physical health and safety
will prepare each child for the foundations they will need to be prepared for kindergarten
aka "Big Kid School".
Kindergarten Program - 4 to 5 Year Old Program
This program is typically provided for the child who turns 5 right after the school
year begins (September 1st). FPS recommends that students in this program have completed
a pre-k program here at FPS or at another day school. It is our desire to provide
our students with a true a kindergarten school experience. Your child will spend
their morning (8:00AM-12:30PM) involved in structured curriculum taught by a certified
kindergarten teacher. Student attendance in this class is crucial and will provide
your child with the routine schedule he or she will need when moving to "Big Kid
School". This program will focus on mastering language development, literacy, reading,
mathematics, science, social studies, creative arts, social and emotional development,
and physical health and safety. This is truly a wonderful class to transition your
child into a public or private school kindergarten.
As part of the extended kindergarten program (12:30PM-6:00PM) the students will
also have the opportunity to learn through well planned learning centers that allow
for child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching designed
to ensure academic success.
After School Care Program
This program is a blessing for our parents. We provide transportation from certain
schools in the New Braunfels Independent School District. The schools from
which we provide transportation can and may change from year to year. Transportation
is offered for those schools that the majority of our children attend and van runs
are based and scheduled according to each individual public schools dismissal time.
Please check with your child's public school for their dismissal time, as this may
change from school year to school year. After school, your child will be brought
to our facility to participate in the following activities: snack, homework, free
play, organized play, art, and indoor & outdoor play time. We make it our policy
to work with the parents to provide an individualized homework plan for each child.
Students enrolled in our after-school program may not be over age 11 or above grade
School-Age Summer Care Program
FP School provides a separate program in the summer for our school-age children
grades K-5th. It is our desire to provide a place for our school kids to come when
public school is not in session. During this time, your child will spend their days
involved in free play, organized group play, projects, field trips, indoor & outdoor
play, and much more. Registration for this program is during in-house and open registration
time (see school calendar for dates). This program is offered to our in-house students
(Ex: exiting kindergarten and after-school care enrollees) first and then filled
on a first-come firstserved basis during open registration (see school calendar
