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.



Firefighters to visit
As part of our fire-prevention activities, the Sugar Land Firefighters will send a fire truck to visit the Walden School children on Tuesday, October 20th at 9:00. All classes from Toddler and above will visit the fire truck. Kindergarten through 2nd grade will have a special class and visit the fire truck.
