About Wonder Years
Wonder Years is a family-owned, early learning and child care facility in Austin. We have been dedicated to the enrichment of early experiences for our youngest community members since 2006. Our year-round program aligns with the child-initiated, play-based learning approach because children learn best through play. We give our children the opportunity to explore in a prepared environment and encourage the use of imagination.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand while imagination embraces the entire world and all there will ever be to know and understand.” – Albert Einstein
The development that takes place in the first five years (spearheaded by attachments and experiences) is critical for continued evolution into a well-rounded adult. Early experiences robustly shape who we will become. So our philosophy is simple: Do everything in our power to ensure the first five years are full of healthy attachments and profound experiences.
Provide secure attachments and positive experiences through a nurturing environment and developmentally appropriate practices.
Build a community of support through alliances with primary caregivers, partnering for consistency between home and school.
Young children who: have good emotional health, have lifelong learning success, and become productive citizens.
To have empowered caregivers (parents, grandparents, guardians, foster parents, teachers) fueled with knowledge and inspired by fruition.
