About Pint-Size Playhouse

My name is Nicole Perez, and I proudly own and operate The Pint-Size Playhouse. I am a childcare professional with 20 years of experience. I earned my Child Development Associate Credential through Austin Community College. I am a certified parent educator and have helped facilitate parenting classes all over Texas. I attend regional conferences and local trainings to maintain my education and stay up-to-date on new trends and research related to how children learn and grow.

I have designed my preschool program to foster creativity, as well as promote emotional, cognitive, social and physical development in children 2 through 5 years of age. Our classroom is safe and spacious with regular inspections by The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Child Care Licensing.

The Pint-Size Playhouse stays in compliance with Texas Minimum Standards.
