Curriculum and Activities
Our daycare center primarily follows the HighReach Learning early childhood curriculum while incorporating some other curricula and professional ideas into our daily activities to meet the needs of children at different ages and learning levels.
Spanish lessons are included in our daily curriculum.
At the end of each day, parents are provided with a written report of each child's activities, including what was eaten, if/when the child slept, number of wet and dirty diapers or potty visits, what kind of day the child had in general, what outdoor and/or indoor activities the child participated in, and general comments or questions for the parent from the child's teacher.
We understand that parents rely on good communication for a clear understanding of their child's day while in our care. We welcome conversations between parents and teachers any time, but we also value each parent's time and understand that busy schedules don't always permit inquiries on a daily basis. Our daily reports provide basic information that can be communicated quickly and easily without requiring the parent to ask.

Our daycare center is open year round except for major holidays and severe weather closures (consistent with DISD weather closures).
The child-to-teacher ratio varies according to age group at all daycare facilities. Munger Square Child Care's ratio tends to be smaller due to classroom sizes, providing more individualized attention and a more controlled, comfortable, family-friendly environment than what is typically found at larger daycare centers.
MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE RATIOS:
0-11 months 4:1
Due to the smaller-than-average class sizes, spaces are more limited at Munger Square Child Care than at larger daycare centers. We maintain a waiting list for each class, accommodating families to the best of our abilities whenever there is an opening in a classroom.
