About ACV
A Children’s Village has been serving the families in the community since 1985. Our program is offered to children from ages 1-5 years old (by September 1st of the current year).

Curricula
FunShine Express and Mother Goose Time are two popular programs used in many preschools all over the nation. They are aligned to Texas State Standards and focus on developing your child’s social and emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development. Daily faith-based lessons are taught in conjunction with each month’s thematic units. FunShine Express offers two curricula differentiated by age groups: the Buttercups curriculum is used by our Chicks (12-17 months) through our Pandas (2.5 years old) classes; the Fireflies curriculum is used by our Frogs and Cubs classes. All three of our Pre-K 4 classes use Mother Goose Time curriculum, which engages children in many STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities.
