Our preschool teachers provide age appropriate activities in each classroom. Our preschool program promotes individual and cooperative play, imagination and creativity, constructive ideas, individualism and self expression. Our curriculum offers literacy, music, math, science, art, and sensory and daily Bible stories. Handwriting Without Tears curriculum is used with the children in the 4-6 year-old classes to prepare them for Kindergarten.
Our vision of A Child’s Haven is a Christian environment where the uniqueness of all children is celebrated and imaginations run free. We foster an environment where curiosity and creativity are rewarded.
The mission of A Child’s Haven is to provide an educational environment in which the Christian faith will be reflected. We will provide learning opportunities for children which are developmentally appropriate, intellectually stimulating, and spiritually nurturing in a safe, loving environment.
A Child’s Haven bases its curriculum on the philosophy that children learn through play. Our curriculum emphasizes a “hands on” approach to learning. Classroom lessons provide active involvement, meaningful exploration, and reinforcement through repetition. Daily schedules are designed to balance structure and free choice, as well as active and quiet times. Skills are introduced through materials and activities which are both child-centered and teacher-directed. Activities are planned which emphasize the process instead of the product, fostering a sense of achievement and self-worth. Equipment, materials, and activities are chosen based on the appropriate ages and stages of the child’s development. We follow the Texas Early Childhood Guidelines in our younger classes and the Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines in our Pre-K class. The Kinder Bridge class utilizes the Get Set For School and Handwriting without Tears curriculum from Learning Without Tears. This class is designed for children who have completed a pre-k class or who have an early fall birthday. The class provides a “gift of time” so to speak, in that it gives children extra time for development of important skills before attending an actual kindergarten class.
Our Preschool features classrooms and playgrounds that are developmentally appropriate for each age group—with age-appropriate educational toys and equipment hand-selected by our team of early education experts.
We have two age-appropriate playgrounds: one designed for toddlers and one for preschoolers. A very comforting, inspiring atmosphere for all age groups.
We are located on the grounds of Cedar Park First United Methodist Church. Our address is 600 West Park St, Cedar Park, Texas, 78613.
We offer part-time classes for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years of age. We are open from 9:00-1:00 Monday through Thursday during the school year.

We are excited to announce that this Spring semester we will be starting our school garden. There are many benefits of introducing gardening to kids at age toddlers to preschoolers. Through garden play, children acquire and improve crucial skills, have fun, and develop self-confidence all the while enjoying a nature-friendly childhood. The skills our preschoolers will learn from their gardening experience will engage all senses. It’s where they can touch and feel the fruits of their labor, fancy the brightly colored flowers, grow accustomed to natural scents and the sound of rustling shrubs.
Skills children learn from nature and how gardening help a child’s development?
Hands-on learning for Science, and the Arts prepare children for real world challenges.
Daily Discussions and self-paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.
Relational covenants and real world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.
This is our fifth year having one of our children at A Child's Haven, and we look forward to another two years. We've loved the teachers and staff, and we're happy with the education. It's smaller, but I've found that to be a good thing. There's a sense of community that we've loved. I highly recommend.
My son started at a Child’s Haven in the 3s class this year. I have nothing but positive things to say about the program and recommend to all. It’s been a difficult year with Covid but they have done an excellent job in making the place as clean as possible and remaining open as safely as they can.
My son loves coming to “school” and always chats at home about his class mates, teachers and stuff he’s done in school.
Thanks so much for making his first year a great one. Looking forward to signing him up for 4 mornings next year.
