Play-Based Learning Approach

EAC YMCA Early Education programs offer a play-based approach that involves both child-initiated and teacher-supported learning with hands-on activities through center play, artistic activities, and mindfulness practice that create a warm and healthy classroom environment.

Social Emotional Learning

Our teachers are making great efforts to create a safe and loving environment with a social emotional emphasis featuring Dr. Becky Bailey’s Conscious Discipline®. Children will participate in activities that foster social and emotional development throughout their day that will prepare them to:

  • Make friends and keep friendships
  • Gain confidence
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Manage stress and anxiety
  • Make appropriate decisions
  • Learn strengths and weaknesses
  • Gain awareness of what others are feeling

Building Friendships & Positive Relationships

EAC YMCA offers a program where children can engage with peers and establish meaningful friendships

Learning Centers

During center time the children will guide their own learning with their curiosity and interests by exploring the several areas throughout the classroom that include:

  • Library
  • Building and Construction
  • Pretend Play
  • Creative Expression
  • Math & Manipulatives
  • Science & Discovery
  • Sensory Station

This time allows children to grow in their social skills such as self regulation, problem solving, collaboration with others, independence, self esteem and confidence.


Appropriate Curriculum

Frog Street Curriculum, developed in accordance with early brain development research, offers intentional instruction that fosters essential growth in the four developmental domains (language, cognitive, physical, social emotional). Through a social and emotional emphasis and well-rounded scope of hands-on learning activities, children develop the skills necessary to continue on the path to kindergarten readiness.

  • Infants: Building Strong Foundations
  • Toddlers: Nurturing Curiosity through Exploration
  • Threes: Expanding Wonder and New Horizons

Social Emotional Learning: Our teachers create a safe and loving environment with a social emotional emphasis featuring Dr. Becky Bailey’s Conscious Discipline®. Children will participate in activities that foster social and emotional development throughout their day that will prepare them to:

  • Make friends and keep friendships
  • Gain confidence
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Manage stress and anxiety
  • Make appropriate decisions
  • Learn strengths and weaknesses
  • Gain awareness of what others are feeling

Texas Rising Star

The Texas Rising Star program is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) for child care programs. Numerous research studies have shown that children who attend higher-quality early learning programs are more prepared for school entry than children who do not attend high-quality programs.

Our programs offer quality that exceeds the child care licensing standards for director and staff qualifications, teacher-child interactions, program administration, family education and engagement, and indoor and outdoor learning environments. These above and beyond practices positively affect the development of the children we serve.

Physical Development

Children will have several opportunities throughout their day to actively explore their indoor and outdoor environments by using their bodies to practice their gross motor skills, such as running, jumping, balancing, dancing, crawling and more.

Healthy Snack

EAC YMCA ensures children have access to a healthy, balanced snack each morning and afternoon. Snacks include a variety of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and small amounts of added sugar and saturated fat. All USDA approved.

Small Group Instruction

Preschoolers will experience hands-on activities during small group instruction which allows the teacher to provide specific support to help each child move to the next level of learning. These activities include fine motor skills, sorting, counting, and number and letter recognition.

Austin Landmarks – USA

Austin Landmarks

1. Texas Capitol

In the center of Austin stands the legislative center of Texas, the State Capitol. Opened in 1888, this historic Austin landmark is 5 meters taller than the main US Capitol in Washington, DC. The capitol is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986.


Metropolitan Park

Located on the banks of the Colorado River, this locals’ favorite park spreads over 350 acres and maintains Austin’s reputation as one of the best places to live. The park is home to some of Austin’s most popular city attractions, from the Botanical Gardens, the Sculpture Museum to the Barton Spring Pool, as well as several sports fields and plenty of open spaces to walk with lovely lawns punctuated by small groves of trees. There is also a theatre, children’s train and many small playgrounds on site. The park hosts the annual Austin City Limits Music Festival.

3. Sculpture Garden

The work of Charles Umlauf, a professor of art at the University of Texas for 40 years, blends with the local Texas landscape. Umlauf and his wife Angelina donated their property, Charles’ home and studio, along with 168 sculptures, to the City of Austin in 1985. The garden contains 59 Umlauf sculptures, mostly in bronze using the wax melting method. The collection also includes thousands of his drawings.

4. Mount Bonnell

For great views, head to Mount Bonnell in Covert Park for stunning views of the city, Lake Austin and the surrounding hills. Mount Bonnell has been designated a Texas Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

5. Blanton Museum of Art

Located on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin, the Blanton Museum of Art is a must-see for any art lover and is considered one of the university’s largest art museums. in the USA, it stores more than 21,000 works of art. His collection of Latin American art (with over 2,000 works) is one of the oldest, largest, and most complete collections in the US, with artists from Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as Central and South America.

The Blanton Museum of Art is across the street from the Bullock State Historic Site. It is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 10:00 to 17:00 and also on Sunday from 13:00 to 17:00. Admission is $12 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children under 12.

6. Barton Springs Pool

Located in Metropolitan Park, the pool has been a favorite bathing spot for locals and visitors for generations. Native Americans used the springs at this site for thousands of years before the arrival of European colonists. William Barton first painted an architectural bathing complex in the 1830s. The 3-acre pool, fed by underground springs, maintains a constant temperature of 26 to 28 degrees. The area around the pool features recreational lawns, bathhouses, and an educational exhibit about the history of Barton Springs, including the endangered salamander that lives in the area.

7. Museum of Texas History

was on atop the dome of the State Capitol, to a 1960s rocket control room at the Houston Space Center. Along with galleries featuring over 700 artifacts, the museum features special exhibits that reflect Texas’ diverse history. The museum also houses the largest IMAX screen in the state, as well as the Spirit of Texas Theatre, outdoor patio cafe and gift shop.

8. Austin Bats

Experts say Austin is home to the largest urban bat colony in North America. Approximately 1.5 million bats call the Ann Richards Bridge on Congress Avenue their home. Bats settled here after the reconstruction of the bridge in 1980, creating crevices perfect for bats to hide from predators. Every spring, Mexican free-tailed bats migrate north to the bridge to give birth and raise their young. During the summer, bats can be seen every evening at dusk as they fly out in search of food to rid the city of pesky insects before heading back to central Mexico in the fall. Evening kayaking at Lady Bird Lake is a great way to watch bats.

The Congress Avenue Bridge is located south of downtown Austin, between the Colorado River and Lady Bird Lake. There is a footpath on the bridge, and it is best to go to the bridge before sunset.

9. Museum of Mexican Art

The Museum of Mexican Art is dedicated to the preservation of Mexican and Latin American art and culture, including artists from Texas. It houses a permanent collection of over 5,000 contemporary works, including photographs, sculptures, arts and crafts and masks, as well as works by local artists. The museum also hosts theatrical and musical performances throughout the year.

Admission is $7 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, and $1 for children under 12.

Peacocks roam all over the park, keep your eyes open while walking and don’t forget to look at the trees and rooftops. The historic cottage and gardens are located on a 2 hectare parcel of land that Mary Mayfield Gutch donated to the City of Austin in 1971 years. There are many ponds and gardens to explore here. Mayfield Preserve is a 21 hectare natural landscape that hikers can access via hiking trails.
