About Our School

Our Philosophy

First Protestant School of New Braunfels is a new private school devoted to creating an environment full of learning experiences that will meet the spiritual, physical, mental, social, and developmental needs of children in the New Braunfels area. We offer daycare, preschool, and after-school programs for children aged 6 weeks through 5th grade.

Spiritual:

We believe that Christian principals are essential in providing children with a sound foundation for their future growth. Through our Christian curriculum, we are able to meet this task.

Physical:

We recognize the need to provide an age appropriate physical environment for each child, and have designed an environment and program to meet the physical needs of our students.

Mental:

We strive to provide children with a safe, secure, risk free learning environment to develop their emerging skills. We recognize that parents are their child’s first and most important teacher and feel it is important for the parents to be part of their child’s growth. Therefore, we will do our best to keep parents informed of their child’s progress and activities and encourage parents to be active in the classrooms and school.

Social:

We provide channels by which children are able to experience ways to develop socially through basic Christian concepts.

Developmental:

We believe that that the majority of a child’s learning foundation is established at a young age. We offer a variety of experiences in the classroom. As part of our curriculum, we implement developmentally appropriate learning centers, circle time, instructional time, one on one time with teachers, story time, indoor & outdoor play times, and meal times. Once your child reaches 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.

 

Our Daily Daycare, Preschool, and After-School Programs

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, private school environment for your child.

Infant Program – (6 weeks - 17 months)
Our infant and toddler program 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. 

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. 

 

Toddler Program – (18 - 23 months)

This nurturing environment provides the structure that allows the students to grow and learn while feeling safe and comfortable. Children are encouraged to use their words to express their needs and wants. The activities are developed to create a learning and social experience through play. 


2-Year-Old Program
This is the year of beginning to grow independence, learn manners, socializing with friends, and most importantly 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. 

*Please refer to potty training program policy for requirements pertaining to this age group in our Parent Handbook.

Preschool 3-Year-Old Program
This is year of educational growth, and making friends. Your child will spend their day in both individual and group curriculum time. Activities will include developmentally appropriate learning centers, circle time, instructional time, indoor and outdoor play and story time. 

*Please refer to potty training program policy for requirements pertaining to this age group in our Parent Handbook.

Preschool 4-Year-Old Program
This is the year where we see children blossom in their understanding of print and letter/sound recognition. It is also during this time where children begin making choices and charting their thoughts and feelings. 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. 

Kinder Prep 4- to 5-Year-Old Program
This program is typically provided for the child who turns 5 right after the public school cutoff date (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-12:00PM) involved in a 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 (12:00PM-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.

After School Care Program (Kinder - 5th Grade)
This program provides transportation from schools in the New Braunfels Independent School District. After school, your child will be brought to our facility to participate in multiple activities such as 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 5. 

School-Age Summer Care Program
FPS 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.
