At Young Children’s World we believe children learn through their play and that they must practice playing to become good students in big school. We provide a variety of messy (sensory) play with paint, mud, water, shaving cream, and sand. Children must first learn to control their environments before they can control themselves. Children learn to read by being able to decode symbols. They do this by learning to organize their environment through sorting, classifying, and seriating objects. This is why we spend time in block, fine motor, and sensory play. Children cannot comprehend what they read unless they can see a story in their heads. To be able to see a story, they must be able to tell a story. We learn to tell and act out stories in dramatic play, circle time, and literacy circle. If children can act a story, they can comprehend what they read. The more children practice play, the deeper the level of learning. At YCW we believe that guided play is a child’s work. Inspired by Reggio Emillio, Young Children’s World’s primary objective is Kindergarten readiness through ample time spent in guided play.

I also wanted to remind you about our weather policy:

We will follow AISD for weather closings. Please watch the news and know if AISD is closed then YCW will be closed. If AISD has a delayed start then we will have a delayed start, but one hour later than AISD’s Elementary schools. (AISD Elem’s start at 10 we will start at 11).  Also, I will send out a text through the Remind App. To sign up for Remind: text the message @ycw2 to the number 81010 to receive school wide announcements and reminders!

I am sorry to announce that Google Wallet will no longer be a payment option for tuition. 

Here's the good news.

There are other options! Most banks have online banking. All you need to do is go to your online banking, go to the bill pay tab and select "Add a Company or a Person." Here's what it looked like on my Bank of America payment center. 
Company Name is Young Children's World. Account Number will be your student's name. Enter Highland's address, phone number, the ycw email and you are set to go! You can set up recurring payment options and your bank will deliver the payment to Highland every month!  
I am very sorry if this is an inconvenience for you. Please know I tried my best to keep google wallet as a payment option, however, it is because I do not personally own YCW that I am unable to receive payments through Google Wallet.

Google Wallet Update

I believe I have successfully linked our google wallet payment option to the ycw email. Please send your October tuition payments to We will continue to keep the google wallet open for a short time during the transition. If you have recently sent a payment to the shealea email no worries. I can still access that account as well! 

If you would like to start using this payment option please send me an email. I would love to help. 

Also, please remember to put your student/s names in the memo line so I know who made the payment! I have not been able to memorize all your email addresses yet!!!
