Children learn certain skills most easily during particular windows of opportunity. These Optimal Periods of Development are the few weeks or months when part of the brain absorbs new information more easily than any other time in life. At Wonder Years, we strive to facilitate individual development and assist in each child's transformation.

Your family can rest assured each day as you leave your child in our controlled access facility where digital communication allows you to feel connected through-out the day. Each room is carefully designed to provide your child with active learning areas loaded with materials that contribute to social interaction and great experiences. Our wonderful shady playground area is quality certified through the state of Texas and our EXCLUSIVE OUTDOOR STEAM area offers your child experiences only the outdoors can provide.
