The PREP School Innovative, Private Preschool

By Amy Morgan

O

ffices are reopening, and you’re returning to work in person. Or maybe you’re expecting a new baby or have recently relocated to the area. One of the most important decisions you’ll make is finding the right childcare arrangements for your family.

Todd is a skilled general contractor and founder of Double Diamond Custom Homes. He constructed the school from the ground up (along with three others in the Austin area and several more pending), while Christina handles all operations.

Look no further than The PREP School in Stone Oak. The highly respected private preschool located at 24372 Wilderness Oak, just down the road from Canyon Springs Golf Course, enrolls children 6-weeks – kindergarten throughout the year. Children as old as 12 can be enrolled in afterschool programs offering a variety of activities as well as assistance with homework. Summer camp also is available for elementary age children.

The result is a clean, modern facility complete with state-of-the-art equipment and furnishings painted the “PREPtastic” theme colors of bright blue, lime green and sunny orange.

The PREP School’s Stone Oak location will celebrate its fifth anniversary this year. It’s owned by local couple Christina and Todd Williams. Todd’s sister, Erin Triant, built upon her childcare expertise to develop and franchise The PREP School concept. Erin opened the first location in Dripping Springs 9 years ago. When the Williamses’ sons graduated from Johnson High School, Christina was ready for a new project. Family comes first for this couple, and she wanted to offer parents a place with the highest standards in childcare. The premier, private preschool sets itself apart by offering more — staff who are passionate about early childhood education, state-of-the-art facilities, tailored instruction and low student/teacher ratios.

Shaded playgrounds include a padded fall zone to reduce impact.


The PREP School provides an Emergent and hands-on, curriculum-based educational focus. At The PREP, children receive an academic and development assessment that allows individual tailoring of a program/curriculum to maximize each child’s ability to learn. The high-quality curriculum is selected from several nationally recognized publishers such as McGraw Hill and Pearson. The PREP School’s integration of enrichment and curriculum components is rarely found in the preschool setting. Students, starting with the toddlers, rotate to specialized classrooms: the PREP Tech, the Art Studio, the Outdoor Classroom, the PREP Café (whose dedicated chef prepares nutritious meals), and the Multi-Purpose Room (a preschool sized gym space). The Spanish curriculum begins at 2½ years. Enrichment experience includes art and Yoga classes, even in the infant rooms. Children will participate in etiquette courses, learning through music, organic gardening projects, cooking projects, coding, field trips and sprinkler play on the Splash Pad. The state-of-the-art tech room includes an interactive whiteboard, age specific robots and other unique tools to teach coding and engineering concepts and scientific methods. On-site dance, tumbling and soccer are available for an additional fee.

Cool down on hot summer days on the splash pad with evermoving sprays of water. Even before COVID, The PREP School’s HVAC system was fitted with hospital grade filtration that circulates outside air into the building. Outdoor playgrounds are covered with cushioned turf to create a safe fall zone. A biometric fingerprint system secures access to the building. Parents are invited to watch their children via the closed-circuit video monitors in the parent lounge. The PREP School’s structured environment provides the children the stability they need to thrive and security to reassure parents. Safety and hygiene are always top

There’s even a “TLC” room for children who are not feeling well and need to be away from the classroom to deter the spread of germs. Each child is placed in one of the 11 classrooms that best suits his/her age and developmental level. Class and staff/ child ratios remain small, allowing children to receive individualized attention. Each teacher is issued a secure Ipad with which to share instant updates and pictures so parents never miss milestone moments. Teachers are carefully screened to show interest and aptitude with children. They demonstrate commitment to the profession through hands-on experience, advanced training and teaching certificates or related degrees. The PREP School offers competitive salaries to attract qualified staff. “Our mission is to provide the highest level of early childhood education in a safe and secure environment that nurtures each child’s individual needs,” Christina said. “I’m dedicated and passionate about educating our children.” A motivating factor is her belief in the importance of literacy. “I want every child to love to learn to read. It is a stepping-stone to their future success,” she said. Her eyes moistened as she told how one of their pre-K students who had been in The PREP School’s inaugural infant class had recently read her first sentence to her teacher. “It’s pretty exciting that we have four-year-olds reading,” she said. Enrollment for The PREP School is limited, and many classrooms maintain waitlists. Enrollment for summer and the 2022/2023 school year is open now, with spots filling quickly.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Friendships and Fun Reagan Drill Team Colonel Enjoys the Year

By Amy Morgan

S

chool days are full for Ronald Reagan High School senior Alyssa Cameron, and that’s the way this active student likes them. She thrives as the Colonel of one of the largest Junior Varsity Silver Stars Drill Teams Reagan has ever fielded. The close to 60 girls are in the midst of their competition season, which in 2022 includes trips to Orlando as well as across Texas almost every weekend until spring break. The girls are thrilled to be able to travel again to earn the high honors for which Reagan’s spirit teams have been known. “A lot of people were excited to join this year,” Alyssa said. “It’s an awesome opportunity to have a big team of friends that feel like family.” The Silver Stars debut a new hip hop dance as well as a Game Day routine that traditionally includes both the Reagan fight song and Deep in the Heart of Texas to remind other competitors of the Rattlers’ roots. “We’ve been working so hard on it,” she said. “I’m excited to experience the demand and rush of doing five routines in a day.” The competition always notches up just a little when the Reagan girls meet their friendly rivals from Johnson or Churchill, Alyssa noted. As Colonel, Alyssa is second in charge to guide the team in all their activities. While she choreographs routines and leads practice, she is most concerned about bonding with her teammates and the girls’ emotional wellbeing. She mentioned times when a fellow dancer felt unsure. She noticed the unease and “told them the opposite of what you’d expect. Dance isn’t everything. There’s so much more to them than what they can produce and perform. It’s about who they are. Their effort is important.”

She remembers when dancing was new to her. A soccer player, Alyssa joined pep squad freshman year for the friendships and fun. She grew from not knowing how to do a pirouette or a Calypso to now landing triples. “I am a competitive person. I like to grow at something,” she said. “I really pushed myself in ballet and jazz classes.” Alyssa plans to major in psychology and attend Texas A&M in the fall. Her favorite high school memories include kicking off the Reagan spirit season at Rattler Roundup and cheering and performing at Reagan football games. “I loved sharing those moments alongside my friends. We’d laugh, cry, perform, have fun and dance in the stands. I’m kind of a football fanatic now,” she said. Alyssa also helped set up Christmas decorations at Independence Hill Retirement Community as a National Honor Society service project where surprisingly, the students met a resident parrot! Alyssa and her family are active at Community Bible Church, and she credits her Christian faith as her foundation.

Honey Don’t's Spring Cleaning Dangers By Amy Morgan

The Good Neighbor of the Month presented by Travis Slaydon State Farm Insurance

Helping the Homeless Good Neighbor Leads Team Feeding Hundreds By Amy Morgan

W

ho is your neighbor? The Bible has a lot to say. Verses like, “Look after orphans and widows in their distress,” and “give a cup of water in my name,” direct us to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” Phillip Valadez takes the Bible’s call to help the poor and downtrodden seriously. In October 2020 he agreed to spearhead the Fellowship of San Antonio (FOSA) church’s support of the Church Under the Bridge (CUB) ministry to those experiencing homelessness. Now Chairman of the church’s deacons, Phillip and his wife, Monica, have been FOSA members since its early years. CUB began 25 years ago when individuals with hearts for San Antonio’s homeless population began ministering to those living on the street from a location literally under the bridge of U.S. Highway 281 downtown. Caring people sought to meet the population’s spiritual and physical needs. The volunteer staff overseen by Executive Director Dianne Talbert work with partner agencies (including churches) that donate needed items, buy, cook, serve and clean up dinner on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday nights for the participants, many of whom are regulars. 350-500 marginalized men, women and children consider CUB their church home, according to Dianne.

As the leader of FOSA’s effort, Phillip is responsible for gathering a team on Sundays monthly to cook and serve the food. FOSA provides a worship team and pastor to lead the church service at 5 p.m., after which Phillip and the other volunteers distribute the meals they’ve packaged individually. At the beginning, obstacles seemed almost insurmountable. “I was in charge of getting volunteers to go,” Phillip said. “It was tough for a while, especially before the vaccine.” He describes leaving church after service at 12:30 p.m., knowing that although the team was expected downtown at CUB by 3, no one had yet agreed to accompany him. “I didn’t know what we were going to do,” he said. “But every time, by 1:15, my phone started blowing up with text messages and emails. After that happened three or four times, I didn’t worry anymore. I knew God had it.” Last month Phillip saw fruit of his faithfulness. He witnessed three people walking forward to commit their life to the Lord. They had heard a sermon taught by FOSA Elder Mike Stone that explained the way to get out of rock bottom was to follow Jesus. Mike feels that God healed him from COVID to deliver the message. “The Lord had this planned years ago,” Phillip said.

Fellowship of San Antonio Pastors O’Brien Satcher and Dr. Royce Smith help Phillip Valadez deliver turkeys to Church Under the Bridge last Thanksgiving.

Phillip’s joy serving at CUB motivates him to share his experiences. One post reconnected Phillip with a friend who expressed a desire to use his resources to benefit the ministry.


“This is a businessman who can make a difference. Those little nudges remind me God’s in charge,” Phillip said. Over the years, Dianne has seen many people benefit from the support CUB provides. “Success stories are the ones who have accepted Jesus as their savior and have come back and gotten baptized,” she says. Phillip’s experience was helpful when FOSA pledged to provide CUB’s Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas hams. The money wasn’t the issue, but supply chain disruptions made obtaining the meat difficult. Phillip and Monica traveled a route of four HEBs daily, checking out in two separate lines until they could gather the dozens of items needed.

“Every time I leave, I’m on cloud nine,” Phillip said. He’d love to take people “to experience what I’ve been able to see. With all the bad stuff going on in the world, there are some good stories out there.” Contact Phillip at 210-393-3300.

Invest in Your Health Spend Your Tax Refund on your Smile By Amy Morgan

D

id you file your tax returns early this year hoping for a refund? Why don’t you use that lump sum to invest in your health? Many people are focusing on exercising and eating better, but did you know that your oral health affects how healthy you are overall? Gum disease caused by unchecked bacteria in the mouth has been linked to heart problems, respiratory infections, pregnancy complications, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis and even dementia! Tooth decay does not make for a pretty smile, which is the first thing people will notice about you whether on Zoom or in person. 7to7 Dental & Orthodontics can take care of all your oral health needs, whether it’s brightening your teeth, cleaning, straightening or finally investing in crowns or veneers. 7to7 Dental will provide free professional grade whitening gel after each hygiene visit!

The in-office membership starts at just $21/month, making dental care even more affordable for existing and new patients alike.

Lucky Dog

Rescue Pup Finds Forever Family on St. Patrick’s Day We reached out to a family friend. They had never had a dog, but their son had always wanted one. Their answer had been, maybe… someday… But this was March 2020. The husband, a pilot, and their three young adult children were all back home due to COVID shutdowns. The family met Rowan, and the fit was right. The Lucky Dog and his forever family were a match made in heaven. “He came at the perfect time,” the wife told me. “He’s great for everybody.” With five active adults living at home, Rowan never lacks for someone to take him for a trot to work off that Husky energy. He’s changed a nondog family into one full of puppy love. His new parents even proudly wear “Husky Mom,” and “Husky Dad” t-shirts. “I never would have known I’d love him as much as I do,” she added.

W

e call him Lucky Dog. March 17, 2020 — St. Patrick’s Day. As the entire world contemplated shutting down in what we now know was the COVID pandemic, my husband and I spent the evening outside in our front courtyard. Suddenly, a friendly young Husky arrived at our gate unannounced. He was wet and a little bedraggled, but he didn’t look like he’d come from far. He had a collar, so we invited him into our gates, thinking we’d hang on to him until we could locate his owners. That endeavor did not turn out to be as easy as we had imagined. Roan, the name on his tag, had originally been found alone in a park. In his young life he’d begun training as a service and comfort animal for a wounded veteran and had been surrendered to a Husky rescue. Rowan shared his latest home in a neighborhood across the canyon with two other Huskys, but his owners were facing serious health challenges and doubted they could keep him. We knew he couldn’t stay with us, as our own two rescue pups were growing increasingly annoyed by his presence.

Not every lost pup has as happy an ending as Rowan. San Antonio still has a large population of animals needing good homes. Here are some trusted organizations that help. Veterinarians created SNIPSA to rescue dogs from high kill shelters. Many of these pups need medical care or to wean puppies before they are ready to join a family. SNIPSA volunteers keep potential adoptees in their own homes. The dogs socialize with their hosts’ children and other pets, and dog foster parents can report first-hand about their guests’ characteristics and habits. The Animal Defense League was founded in 1934. Their full veterinary staff cares for animals prior to their adoption. The ADL also offers education programs and opportunities for volunteer service hours. Animal Care Services is the name of the official City of San Antonio pet shelter. In addition to housing animals suitable for rehoming, the organization offers low-cost services, owner surrender and animal law enforcement. If you’ve been considering adding a furry family member, make this the month you bring home your own Lucky Dog.
