Children’s Universe Preschools provide a variety of developmentally appropriate curriculums, especially designed for infants, toddler, and preschoolers, to foster cognitive, social and physical development, as well as creativity. Additionally, we prepare our Pre-K children for Kindergarten with a focus on the Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills (TEKS) that will be used at the next level of their education.
In 2017, we will integrate STEAM into our lessons through a specialized, preschool STEAM curriculum. STEAM is the combination of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. STEAM activities help support curiosity, creativity, and innovative thinking.

Socialization and Good Manners
Among daily training in positive interactions with one another, we use the “Sparkimur Friends” curriculum to support polite behavior, working well with others and good manners.
“Sparkimurs live in an interesting, magic and fun-filled world. They are almost always happy and feel good about themselves. But like all humans – young and old – they have some bad days along the way.”
