About Us:
We are a state licensed, NAEYC accredited child care facility providing full-time care that follows the Manor ISD calendar for children of Manor ISD employees and teen parents enrolled in Manor ISD : ages: 6 weeks to 4 years old. We are licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. We currently participate in the childcare services program through the Workforce, and we are noted as a 4 star Texas Rising Star Provider. We are a nationally accredited school with NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children).

Hours & Location:
We are open from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30p.m. Monday through Friday  

We are located Wildhorse Elementary School, 10400 Wildhorse Ranch Trail in Manor, TX 78653

Staff Training & Education:
The center makes every effort to provide highly qualified staff by ensuring that all staff have training in adult and infant CPR/1st aid. As well, all of our staff must have a minimum of 30 hours of annual training in early childhood development. Included in this annual training is training on how to conduct child assessments and the best ways to deliver and share this information with families. We believe that early childhood is a profession, and we encourage all staff to further their education past a high school diploma. Many of our staff have completed their CDA credential and/or AAS in Child Development and some have graduated with their BA degree. At a minimum, a teacher must be 18 with a HS diploma.

Philosophy:

Our school family collaborates to ensure every child will be engaged in a loving, safe environment that supports independence, imagination, natural learning, and influences curiosity through play. We have an open-door policy and encourage you to drop by to see all the great things happening at the Child Development Center. By offering our children a variety of real-world experiences, problem-solving opportunities, and exposure to diverse cultures, we are ensuring their cognitive growth, linguistic development, and creative expression. Our passionate approach provides acceptance and understanding of meeting the needs of ALL children.

Shared Vision Statement: 

Manor ISD CDC wants to ensure that all children have access to a safe and accessible, high-quality early childhood education that includes a developmentally appropriate curriculum with knowledge and well-trained staff that are continually learning. This will include providing an environment that supports all children's health, nutrition, and social well-being, in an environment that respects and supports diversity.

About NAEYC Accreditation

We have received our NAEYC decision and our program has been Nationally Accredited for 5 more years!!

Manor ISD Child Development Center has achieved National Accreditation from NAEYC! There are over 6,000 schools in the United States but less than 40 in Travis County that have achieved this national accreditation. We now hold the gold torch of quality in our field, and we are very proud! (July 2020 - July 2025)

What is NAEYC: NAEYC (National Association of the Education of Young Children) Accreditation of programs for young children represents the mark of quality in early childhood education. NAEYC Accreditation began in 1985 with the goal of providing an accrediting system that would raise the level of early childhood programs. Today, over 6,500 programs are NAEYC Accredited."

"NAEYC accredited programs invest in early childhood education because they believe in the benefits for children and families. Early childhood experiences—from birth to age 8—have an enormous impact on children’s lifelong learning and positively contribute to their health and development. Early childhood education programs with the mark of quality benefit children with greater readiness for and success in school."
