Grandma’s House is unlike any other child care center in Houston. We are located on 3 acres with tons of mature trees that shade most of the playgrounds. Each age group also has their own age appropriate playgrounds with climbing equipment, toys and sports equipment. We also have a large, air-conditioned gym so that children get free play time no matter the outside weather and temperatures.
Each year we host a pumpkin decorating contest for the families and staff alike. The creativity and competitiveness of our families is amazing. A few years ago, we expanded our family/staff competitions to include a contest for the most creative design of bird houses to be hung around our playgrounds.
During the year we will also offer other opportunities during the year for the families to bond with the staff such as our Thanksgiving lunch, Muffins with Mom and Donuts with Dad.
Parents also share in our garden harvest on a regular basis and take home herbs and vegetables to be used in their own kitchens. Ms. Sandra will also make salsas, pestos and chimichurri sauce to be shared with the staff and families alike. We also use these same products in cooking projects for the school age kids during the summer.
We also have our annual Halloween parties where the kids get to dress up and go trick or treating from classroom to classroom. At Christmas time, Santa makes a visit and hands out toys to all of the kids and we provide Santa/child photos to all of the families. On Valentines day, each classroom has their own parties and the kids get to exchange valentine cards with one another.
