Our Programs

We keep our schedule full at FishCreek Kids Academy with programs throughout the year. We offer our educational summer camps, before and after school programs and preschool programs to families within the Woodlands, Woodforest, Montgomery, Conroe, and Magnolia, Texas areas. Our passion for educational childcare and the local community has led us to create, what we know, is one of the best preschools in the Magnolia Texas area. A little skeptical? No worries — just check out our one-of-a-kind approach to learning.

School-wide Assembly

We come together each morning as a whole school in the gym, 8:30 AM Monday through Thursday, 10:00 AM on Fridays.

As we begin assembly we stand on the colored tiles forming a large square with all teachers and students facing each other. There are some announcements and singing and dancing as we introduce new music and sing-a-long songs to the students. We get the United States flag out and recite the Pledge of Allegiance and encourage full participation.We engage children with song and dance that follow our weekly themes.

At the end of the assembly, we award a trophy to the class that followed all the instructions, participated with enthusiasm and demonstrated the best school spirit.

During the week we give tickets to the students age 3 and up, for demonstrating responsible and good character choices. At the Friday assembly, we draw several tickets out of their classroom ticket jar where one ticket per class is drawn to pick a prize from our treasure box.

Physical Education

Each morning we begin our day with exercise to wake up and prepare for a fun day of learning! This program integrates movement and physical activity with cognitive learning and places an emphasis on learning and exploration. Since cognitive learning and physical activity go hand-in-hand in early childhood development, we believe it is essential to adopt a curriculum that emphasizes both and uses movement to promote and teach cognitive development through fun and exciting physical activities.

In our infant program, we understand that all children progress at different rates. We strive to accommodate each infant on an individual basis. A baby’s first year is an exciting time with lots of exploration and discovery. Every moment with an infant is precious and we take advantage of that. We coo, cuddle, rock, sing, read to, and bond with your baby. Research shows that engaging infants in interactive experiences that involve sensory, motor, and social explorations builds brain connections. Our specially designed infant care room is a place where your baby can feel safe, secure, and happy. Personal cribs, and separate areas for changing and feeding ensures clean playing, eating and sleeping spaces. Through simple games like peek-a-boo, our loving teachers begin the foundational work for later learning and developing motor skills. Our curriculum is designed to introduce a variety of play materials where they can learn, grow and discover the world. Your child will start to learn a few basic shapes and colors through songs, rhymes, and stories. We never forget that you are your child’s most important teacher, so we work with you by giving you daily reports, and share what your child learns in their time with us.
Our young toddler program, ages 12-17 months old, provides a safe transition environment for the older infants that are walking, or at a minimum trying to walk, and a small classroom to explore and socialize with each other. We continue to cuddle, rock, sing, read to, and bond with your toddler. Our curriculum is designed to utilize a variety of play materials as they continue to learn and grow. Your child will learn a few basic shapes and colors through songs, rhymes, and stories with a natural progression from the infant class experience. Limiting this group to 17 months of age provides a safer environment for early walkers and smaller children so they can develop at their own pace and be better prepared for the rigors of the older toddler class. The teacher will continue to provide you with daily reports and share what your child learns in their time with us.

These older toddlers, ages 18-24 months old, are busy, busy little learners with lots of new things to explore. We specialize in channeling all that energy into things that help toddlers learn and grow. Our curriculum provides developmentally, and age appropriate early learning experiences and materials that develop essential readiness skills through exploration, investigation and FUN! FishCreek teachers lead young toddler’s activities to enhance coordination, and increase verbal and problem solving skills. Children are naturally curious and motivated to learn, so we provide them with the materials and experiences to help them understand and communicate in ways that are most meaningful to them. Your child’s daily schedule will consist of gross motor skill development such as: catching, tossing, crawling, rolling, and walking. Teachers promote language development including: reading time, sign language, music and movement, dancing and singing. Learning shapes and colors, identifying and forming shapes and lastly, artistic development is a focus through crafts.
As children age they become more curious and are eager to expand their knowledge base. Within our home-like environment your two-year-old is free to be anything and everything from an artist to an engineer. Playing “pretend” learning games and participating in hands on activities are just a few of the ways we keep them engaged and learning. Learning how to relate to and work with others is also important to their development at this age, so we have several small and large group activities throughout the day. Your child’s daily schedule will consist of fine and gross motor skill development including: arts and craft projects, outdoor play, tossing and catching, to name a few activities. Cognitive development such as puzzles, games, recognizing shapes numbers and colors. Language development including story time, sign language and recognizing and forming letters. Artistic development such as art projects, construction projects and dramatic play as well as music and movement. Our two-year old’s learn listening skills that include color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, community, health, safety, manners, and science. Learning their numbers will consist of simple counting and number concepts 1-10.

Learning their numbers will consist of simple counting and number concepts 1-15. We use the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum combined with the best parts of various research based curriculum’s. Handwriting Without Tears breaks handwriting skills down so children learn correct pencil grip, letter and number formation. Children will begin with building each letter by breaking them down using big and little line, big and little curve using various materials such as wood pieces, playdoh, and mini chalkboards. They then advance to paper and pencil where they feel very successful. Ages three and up will also learn color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, community, health, safety, manners, and science.

Transition Room (Older 3’s and Younger 4’s) Our older three-year old’s and four-year old’s will continue to practice letter name and sound recognition.

They will expand their knowledge of color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, community helpers, health, safety, manners, and science.

This classroom is a bridge between the three-year-old class and pre-k classroom. Learning is driven by individual student development stage and imagination. Through purposeful play, as well as explicit instructions, our program provides the most eager learners with a strong foundation in early language development, communication, increased vocabulary, and multi-step directions. Literacy instruction includes phonemic awareness, book knowledge and appreciation, and comprehension. Written language and concepts such as problem solving, numbers and operations, comparing shapes, patterns, and measurements. We will work on social and emotional development such as self-control, cooperation, building and maintaining relationships, families and communities.

Fun activities to keep your children learning and having fun all summer long will take place at FCKA as well as on various field trips throughout the week. Learn all about your child’s adventures over dinner and ask them what they learned while away. Your child also continues their cognitive, social and emotional growth over the summer months. At camp, they can meet kids their age from schools throughout the Magnolia, Montgomery, Conroe, and Woodforest areas.
