We would love to show you around our facility. To practice safe social distancing, we've created this video for the safety of you, our students, and staff. We hope you enjoy!
Strawberry Fields of Learning opened its doors in 2009 with only six students enrolled. Today, we have more than 200 students enrolled!
Randi Whitney, owner of Strawberry Fields, began teaching in 1995 and through the years taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades. During this time, she realized that her fellow teachers and students were in need of a better way to teach Reading and Writing concepts, so she opened The Writing Academy (renamed later on to Teach Big). Randi began writing curriculum based on many years of brain research and dedicated her lessons to building relationships between teachers and students as well as students and learning.
As her educational consulting firm grew, so did Randi’s dreams. She had a desire to start a Christian Preschool that would foster a love for learning in children at a young age, and so, Strawberry Fields was brought to life! However, just a few weeks before its grand opening, the Kemah area was struck with devastation and our beloved school was flooded by Hurricane Ike. With friends and family helping and supporting, we renovated our building and finally had our grand opening with one class and six students!
Through the last 11 years, we have grown as a staff, as students, and as a family. Currently, we have grown to more than 200 students, 25 classes, and 50 teachers! Using Randi’s curriculum, we are fostering a love of learning at a young age and building friendships with our students and their families. Our motto at Strawberry Fields is Safety, Love, Teach and if you join our team either as an employee or as a student, you will ALWAYS be a part of our family!
One of our biggest compliments is when we have entire families of cousins and friends attend our school over a span of many years! In fact, when people find out they are pregnant, we are often one of their first calls! Our waiting list is known to be lengthy, and we believe that is due to our family atmosphere and the educational opportunities afforded to our Strawberry Fields’ children on a daily basis.
We are blessed to now be in a new location in the Kemah, League City area located at 3502 Columbia Memorial Parkway. This 5-acre area is allowing us to expand our playgrounds (we have three totaling over 10,000 sf), adding an outdoor classroom area for beautiful days, hosting four Kindergarten classes (as many as some elementary schools), offering 4 AP (advanced placement classes), and a diner that looks like it just stepped out of a 1950’s musical! We are excited about adding on additional classrooms, a soccer field, and a t-ball field in the years to come!
