Childcare Development Center



Leading Early Childhood Education in South Austin

Sweet Briar Child Development Center opened in 1961 when Mrs. Ellen Smith recognized the need for childcare in South Austin.  The Sandra Campus was the first childcare center to open south of the river in Austin! In 2013 our Woodway Village Campus campus opened in Southeast Austin in the Woodway Village Apartments. We are proud of our long history as a quality certified learning center in South Austin. We are proud of our long history as a quality certified learning center in South Austin.

Our Mission: Our goal is to provide a foundation for life-long learning through high quality early care and education for the South Austin community. Our preschools have been recognized as Texas Rising Star Four-Star Centers and  was recently awarded the AISD Pre-K Grant, allowing us to hire a certified teacher to prepare students for Kindergarten. We'd love to have your family become a Sweet Briar family!

[Sweet Briar has] gardens, a wonderful cook who greets every child each morning and creates food out of love, a director who does listen and care and is concerned about everyone’s comfort and safety, endlessly nurturing and smiling teachers, great desk help for payments and information, and a safe and entertaining playground. This place is amazing...
