Families in La Porte have entrusted the care and early education of their children to The Peanut Gallery, La Porte for well over 30 years. Our directors, teachers, and staff are dedicated and nurturing child care professionals who are here to help your family make the most of these precious early years.
We take a skill-based approach to early education that balances social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.

Our Kind Child program was designed to help young children develop social skills and character. We focus on social-emotional skills within our monthly curriculum and introduce character traits like Responsibility, Thankfulness, and a Positive Self-Image every two months.
The goal of Kind Child is to elevate the emotional well-being of every child in our care and enrich friendships. We also spread kindness into our community through local volunteer activities and by holding Kind Child events like our annual Trike-A-Thon, which raises funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
An exceptional education is an important part of our preschool’s promise to you. Most daycare centers and preschools that you’ll encounter when searching for care either have no curriculum or utilize a curriculum based on themes. We take a different approach.
Our Ascend Curriculum is skill-based and focuses on progressively building skill sets across nine different subjects each month. We work towards age-appropriate developmental milestones in every program and fine-tune important skills just before kindergarten during Kindergarten Club. We want your child to develop a lifelong love of learning and enjoy the exciting transition into elementary school!
