Serving Families from Cedar Park, Leander, North Austin & Round Rock
for 15 years and counting…

Founded in 2007, Austin Children’s Academy strives to offer a full range of educational, care, and enrichment options for young families. These include time-customizable care for infants and toddlers, Montessori-based preschool and private kindergarten, as well as after-hours care and tutoring programs including transportation for grade schoolers. Our goal is to provide a welcoming and academically stimulating environment that feels like a home-away-from home.


Infants 2 mos to 18 mos

These early months are crucial for cognitive, sensory, and motor skill development, all of which best occurs in an atmosphere of safe, warm, loving trust. Our caregiver’s first objective is to nurture those bonds by responding to each child’s needs as they arise. Feeling comforted and confident, your child will venture forward to explore their brave new world.

In this program, you’ll witness him or her becoming more independent, self-reliant, and socially adept. More importantly, they will develop the confidence to follow the path of his curiosity and embrace a love of learning.

Primary 3 yrs to 6 yrs

One of the unique features of a Montessori school is multi-age classrooms. Older students model appropriate behavior and guide their younger peers, all while making academic advancements of their own. Studies have shown that the Montessori Method provides a solid academic basis as well as exceptional social skills that prepare children well for kindergarten.

Private Kindergarten 

Kindergarten is a pivotal year. Here at ACA, our Montessori-certified teachers introduce academic subjects such as language arts, math, Spanish, science, social studies, and geography. But we also focus on the qualities that will serve your child throughout life, such as kindness, empathy, determination, self-reliance, initiative, and most of all, an innate love of learning.

Part-time Programs

Not every family needs a full-time, five-day program. Some parents require only a few days to cover gaps in care, or prefer shorter hours to ease a younger child into the school transition. Whether you’re seeking only a few days or a few hours of child care? Check out our flexible academic programs, available as half-day, full-day, or with extended care.

Enrichment Programs

There may be several reasons why you’re considering an after-school enrichment program for your child. Dual working parents might need to find a fun, safe, and productive program to keep children engaged in the afternoon. Perhaps your children have expressed an interest in a new activity or craft, want to play in an organized sport.
