Over two years ago the owners Marc and Nicole were thinking about the type of preschool they wanted to send their own children, they realized there was not one that contained all that was important to them in one school.
They wanted a school where their children:
They knew there were Spanish immersion schools in the city and a few nature schools in the DFW metroplex, but there was no school where all three of the things were housed in one place. That is when they decided to start it themselves in a few years. However, after sharing their idea with friends and family, and seeing how excited people became about this vision of a school, they knew they had something that people wanted. So, as Nicole already had a career in natural resources as a naturalist, park ranger, and natural scientist and relearned Spanish from her days in Peace Corps Mexico, she began to take classes in early childhood development in 2017 to get the ball rolling.
During the summer of 2018, they found a great opportunity to start the preschool in a small and cute property in the Historic Handley Neighborhood in Fort Worth, TX. After things were repaired on the property over the summer, they moved in, hired a director, started setting up indoor and outdoor spaces and received their license in the Fall of 2018.
The mission of the school is: Connecting children to their health, environment, and each other and building small habits that have a greater impact on the community and the world.
They understand that the early childhood years is one of the best times to foster a relationship and understanding with nature, the plants that we consume, and other people and are excited to bring Pebble Pond Preschool to Fort Worth, TX.
