In August 2009 after much anticipation Creekwood Cottage Preschool opened its doors to approximately 20 preschool aged children. In 2010 we became fully licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and opened up our second classroom.
Our population continues to grow as a direct response to a community desire to have a school that truly sees and hears their child/ren and is willing to work with parents to accommodate their childs needs. With community support it is anticipated that Creekwood Cottage will grow to accommodate approximately 70 children.
