Child Care

Awesome care for your kids

We want to create the optimum environment for your success. One way we do this is to provide child care for students, staff, faculty and administrators. But rest assured, this isn’t babysitting.

Our child care service is known as The Laboratory School. We have a facility on each campus, providing responsible, nurturing care. Our Central and North campuses include facilities accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, The Laboratory Schools are licensed by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Service. Your child will enjoy art, music, science, math, dramatic play and more, all integral parts of an enriching, early childhood education curriculum that’s planned and provided by our outstanding staff.

Our objective is to provide you services that will enable you to pursue your educational objectives while providing your child a safe, healthy, and stimulating environment to grow and learn.

Our campus lab schools provide care for children between the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years.

We do ask for a non-refundable registration fee of $75 per child. Tuition is based on contracted schedules. A $30 supply fee per child, per semester, is also required.
