Logo For Small Fries

      Children joyfully respond to teachers who are prepared and have a positive demeanor. All Small Fries' teachers are trained in CPR, screened for children compatability, and have federal background checks before employment.
      Texas has chosen us to be part of the TEEM program. This will allow your child to be part of a new cutting edge learning program.

In June of 2007, Small Fries was one of three child care centers in San Marcos chosen to join the Austin Area Texas Early Education Model (TEEM) project.
       TEEM is an evidence based classroom program that focuses on increasing children's school readiness through research-based curriculum, technology driven progress monitoring, and teacher professional development. TEEM has identified key components of school-ready classrooms linked to kindergarden success.
       Participating in the TEEM project puts us ahead of Texas mandates and gives us more tools and data to ensure we continue to have a high quality preschool program with high quality kindergarden outcomes.

      Texas Rising Star
We are 4-Star accredited (highest level) with Texas Rising Star. We received this certification and have maintained it since June of 2012.
       Texas Rising Star providers voluntarily participate in a plan to improve the quality of their services by meeting program requirements that go above the Minimum Licensing Standards for Licensed Centers.
       Some examples of going above the Minimum Licensing Standards are:
       *Lower child-to teacher ratios
       *More required staff training
       The Star requirements are based upon Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) in Early Childhood Programs.
