If you're looking for a solution to your early childhood needs, or a program for your school age children, the answer can be as easy as a visit to the Walden School. Your children as young as 6 weeks of age and up to as mature as 12 years have a special place here where a nurturing environment and caring staff help your children grow and flourish.

Our philosophy makes the Walden School a child friendly environment. Parents too will find that being involved with the Walden School is more than a partnership in raising their children.
Open communication with staff and directors is encouraged, and a variety of activities are planned especially to involve parents in special events in their child's school activities. Our emphasis is directly and indirectly focused on children's self esteem through developmentally appropriate skill practice and activities.

Our preschool and pre-kindergarten classes help ready children for their successive years in elementary classes. Our kindergarten program successfully melds phonics and whole language programs to develop strong reading skills; along with our hands on Math Their Way programs, children develop a solid base on which to continue
to learn. Our first through second grades continue to excite children about learning as well as helping to develop strong study skills.

Smaller classes and more one to one contact with their teacher during the day, help children succeed in mastering subject matter. For more information about the Walden School click here.

   

   


The Walden School offers a variety of activities each year. Enrollment information
is available at the office and on our bulletin board.
Please sign up promptly if you are interested.


Walden Community Service Corner
The House of Tiny Treasures is a school in the Houston area which cares for homeless children. House of Tiny Treasures is a part of the Search organization. If your family would like to help a child this holiday season please see page 2 of the December newsletter for more information.

Holiday Parties Holiday parties for all classes will be on Friday, December 16th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We will have a special visitor drop in from the North Pole between 10:00 and 11:00 Friday morning. Food may be brought to the party, but it must be store-bought. We are sorry that no homemade items may be given to the children.

Afterschooler Holiday Calendar
Our Afterschoolers (Kindergarten and above) will have several fun field trips and activities over the holidays. Wear your Walden T-shirt on field trip days. See the December newsletter for a complete calendar.
