Our Child Care Philosophy

Welcome to Tiger Land Day School, where children’s growth and development take center stage. Our philosophy is rooted in providing a superior environment that nurtures children, fostering their well-being and potential.

At Tiger Land, we believe in creating a positive, joyful, and safe atmosphere that is filled with fun. We understand the importance of instilling a secure and positive attitude in children, both about themselves and those around them. Our dedicated staff is committed to encouraging this mindset, fostering a sense of self-confidence and respect in every child.

Our classroom environment strikes a balance between structure and flexibility. We believe that children thrive when given the opportunity to explore and engage in “hands-on” activities. Through play, children learn and develop essential skills. Our programs are thoughtfully designed to provide developmentally appropriate learning opportunities, ensuring that children acquire the social skills necessary for success in both school and life.

At Tiger Land Day School, we embrace challenges as valuable learning experiences. We believe that children thrive when they are encouraged to meet challenges head-on and experience the joy of succeeding. Our teachers and staff provide the support and guidance necessary to help children overcome obstacles, fostering resilience and a growth mindset.

We understand that your children are precious to you, and we go the extra mile to ensure their well-being and happiness. Throughout the day, our dedicated team is here to share smiles, provide comfort, and offer a helping hand. We take our responsibility seriously and strive to create a warm and nurturing environment that feels like a second home for your children.

We invite you to experience the Tiger Land difference firsthand! Visit our school, meet our passionate staff, and witness the vibrant and engaging environment we have created. We are confident that you will see how our approach to early childhood education sets us apart.

Thank you for considering Tiger Land Day School. We look forward to partnering with you in providing the best possible start for your child’s educational journey.


Since 1984, Tiger Land Child Care Center has been an integral part of the vibrant Katy community, and our legacy continues to thrive. We take immense pride in having multiple generations of families entrust us with the care and education of their children. It is truly heartwarming to see the deep connections we have formed as a home-away-from-home for countless community leaders, as well as Katy school-age and college children.

Former students often visit us, seeking a sense of nostalgia and the opportunity to reconnect with our dedicated School directors and teachers. Our esteemed Directors, Ms. Jane and Ms. Cheryl, have been instrumental in shaping Tiger Land for over 30 years, dedicating their unwavering commitment and expertise to our center. We are also fortunate to have several other teachers who have been an integral part of the Tiger Land family for over a decade. What’s more, it brings us great joy to see former students return as teachers and teacher’s aides, sharing their firsthand experience and passion for nurturing young minds.

At Tiger Land, we believe in making a positive impact not only within our center’s walls but also in the larger Katy community. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the growth and success of our community’s children, and we strive to instill values of compassion, leadership, and community involvement in every child we care for.

Thank you for being a part of our remarkable journey at Tiger Land. We are excited to continue serving the Katy community and nurturing the bright futures of our children.
