The Atelier Preescolar classroom is rich in visual and auditory stimulation with varied art equipment, musical instruments, globes, maps, wall hangings, and other visuals to provoke curiosity in the children.
Everything is placed neatly on child-sized shelves and furniture to encourage exploration and use. The children are directed to choose an activity, complete it and replace it before choosing another. Because the children have freedom of choice in activities, in an atmosphere of quiet discipline, mutual respect, and reasonable behavior, a positive self-image emerges. All materials are self-correcting and the teacher intervenes only when necessary to introduce a child to new materials or to direct group activities. Most of the children work individually or in small groups.
Atelier Preescolar is certified by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and meets the standards requirements for licensed centers.

As an educator, my goal is to guide my students to help them reach their full potential. This includes creating an educational environment where students use multi-sensory experiences and their own learning styles to develop their best qualities.
