One of the most common questions we’re asked is for school recommendations. We’re so lucky to live in an education-rich city and that San Antonio has a robust public school network, a well balanced private school community, and a wide variety of charter schools to choose from. It is our belief that there is a “right fit” for every family and because we cater to the greater San Antonio area, your options cover a large area. On this page you’ll find information about San Antonio area Early Childhood Education programs including full day/ full time, half day, Mother’s Day Out programs, and more. This guide is a paid listing, brought to you by Alamo City Moms as well as the schools listed below.
Colonial Hills United Methodist School
Now enrolling 18 months – Kindergarten!
At CHUMS we provide a loving, nurturing environment that focuses on the power of learning through play. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum stresses hands on activities and discovery methods of learning. In addition to the curriculum, our enrichment classes are also an important part of your child’s educational experience. Each week your child will participate in music, library, motor skills, and our outdoor classroom where they will plant, grow and harvest their own vegetables throughout the year.
The educational experience your child receives at CHUMS will go beyond the classroom providing them the opportunity to develop the necessary social-emotional skills needed for future academic success. Our small class size, experienced educators, and low student-teacher ratios ensure your child will receive the guidance and attention they need to develop these skills. Research shows that high quality preschool and Kindergarten programs provide one the best opportunities to prepare your child for their academic career while also providing skills for life. We invite you to join our family and discover the power of learning through play and the deep rich culture of our school.
