about

The Preschool and Climbing Tree are ministries of Christ Church United Methodist. Classroom experiences are interpreted in ways consistent with a Christian atmosphere, but children of all faiths are welcome!  

"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it"
                -- Proverbs 22:6

Robin Tracey
Director

I have over 15 years experience working with children and their families. During my experiences I was a Lead Teacher, Directors assistant, and owned and operated my own preschool. I grew up in NY City and attended Oneonta State University majoring in Human services.

I met my husband Corey while attending college and we have been happily married for the past 15 years. We have two amazing daughters Shannon 16 and Kerry 14. My husband is an Engineer and received a great job opportunity here in TX so we decided to go for it! We never thought we would leave NY but we are so happy we did. We have been here for 7 years now and we love it!

When I am not working or spending time with my family I love to read, write, scrapbook and attend various workshops pertaining to the childcare industry. I also have experience working with children on the Autism spectrum and find working with them extremely rewarding!

history

The Christ Church Preschool began in 1996, with the purpose of offering a faith-based preschool program to meet the needs of our community, and has evolved into a well-known and highly praised program. The Preschool meets in classrooms within the church facility.

The Climbing Tree began in 2001 as a ministry at The Woodlands United Methodist Church. When the church elected to close the Climbing Tree four years later, the staff and the 100+ enrolled families believed the ministry was providing a unique service to the community. In 2005, The Climbing Tree was formally adopted as a vital ministry at Christ Church and relocated to their current facility on the church's campus.

In 2013, the Christ Church Christian Education Center was formed to provide a single vision for the programs and to better leverage common resources and personnel. Although the programs have common management, each program continues to have its own unique qualities to best meet the needs of the families they serve.
