About Us

Our Facility

Our many families enjoy complete care for infants through pre-kindergarten age. We are open from 7am until 6pm, ensuring working parents have sufficient child care throughout the work-day. We value quality over quantity in our child care facility. Our teacher to child ratios are carefully managed to ensure each child is properly cared for. Our teachers are all CPR certified and are fully background checked to create a safe and healthy environment. 

We are located in a diverse and up-and-coming area with a heart to lead our youth. Our purpose is to serve the families in our surrounding areas with a love for their children. 

Our Curriculum

We utilize the award-winning Abeka curriculum as our academic guide. This curriculum inspires, educates, and encourages a life-long love of learning. Our teachers are well-versed in this curriculum and endeavor to teach our children each and every day.

 

Learning through play-time is another important consideration we take very seriously. Children deserve to enjoy being this little. While we constantly encourage our children to reach for the stars academically, we also work to inspire our children through hands-on fun and learning.

Additional activities are also made available for those interested. These can include: Athletics, Rolling Library, Dance, Cooking, and Language Lessons.

"Welcome to Garden Oaks Early Learning Center! My name is Christy Purvis and I am so thankful you have taken the time to look into our Center. Whether you have been a family that has been with us for years, or you are just popping in to check out what we offer, you are welcome here. Myself, my husband Jon, and our four children: Gracelyn (8), Azariah (6), Aria (6) and Zion (2) relocated from Columbia, South Carolina to Houston in February, 2021.  While I am brand new to Texas, I am not new to the role of providing faith-based, safe and quality educational care for children. I am a Nationally Certified Early Education Director and have served as a Children’s Ministries Director for the past 10 years at my church in South Carolina. While in that role, I created a Child Development Center from the ground up servicing over 250 students while leading 40+ staff members. In all of my years of experience I have realized that my heart and passion is to create an environment where staff, families, and children feel valued, cared for, and deeply loved. At Garden Oaks Early Learning Center our top priority will be to recognize your child’s individual needs while creating a safe, educationally stimulating, and God-centered program. I always have an open door policy and welcome your questions, concerns, or inquiries at any time. I love to build relationships with both the students and their parents and foster good communication between parent and teachers to optimize care. Again, I appreciate your interest in Garden Oaks and look forward to speaking with you soon." - Christy Purvis ELC Director
