South Austin Children’s Co-op (SACC) is founded on the belief that the pre-school years are critical in a child’s physical, intellectual, and emotional growth. This is an exciting time for children, when they are busy discovering the world about them and how they fit into it. It is a time of experiencing life through the senses, and for children to explore their creative potential. SACC provides a bridge between home and this exciting outside world. Here, with the support of their parents and teacher, children learn how to treat others, how to get along in a social setting, and how to build a sense of assurance about themselves as individuals.
Balance is the key word in the formation of our program: balance between individual and group experience; between free play and structured activity; between small and large muscle development. Freedom is stressed, but within limits imposed by concern for the group. A sensitive teacher and parents provide a warm and supportive atmosphere. As a group we value a natural atmosphere and an environment that fosters play-based learning.
