About Us

Founded in 2004 in Austin, Texas, First Class CDC is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and a member of the South Austin Professional Child Care Association.


Our program is open all year from 6:30 am – 6:30 pm for children between the ages of newborn to five years. Each week our center focuses on a specific topic that is implemented in all areas of the center. Schedules are posted on the bulletin board as well as sent home so that each family knows what we are working towards each week. We believe children learn through play, and this is why we have weekly topics that influence our children’s educational needs.

Our Wish

Is that our parents consider us an extension of their family because we share your enthusiasm in providing safe, quality care. We strive to meet the needs of each and every child. We begin each day with devotion to excellence in an age appropriate manner.

Our Goal

Is to provide a quality, educational facility that allows children to be themselves and relax in a safe and comfortable environment. We believe education should be interesting and fun; therefore we incorporate educational activities through play. We follow National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) rules and guidelines in child care.


First Class CDC is a licensed child care center that is locally owned and operated in south Austin and Buda, Texas. Our philosophy is achieved through a warm and caring atmosphere which promotes creativity and growth. We provide social, physical, and educational activities that lead to problem solving and skill building. We encourage happiness, provide challenging opportunities, opportunities to be creative and opportunities to develop skills to prepare children for each day of their lives as they grow.

We believe early childhood education is critical to child development. The experiences gained in early childhood education set the stage for their future. Our teachers have extensive experience with children and actively participate in early childhood education
