AUSTIN, TX — INIC Preschool families deserve Austin’s safest facility, a high-quality family environment and the best education, not to mention excellent customer service. That’s why INIC is moving down the street to an all-new facility – to provide those experiences at an even higher level.
Everything will be new and fresh. After five years in the current building, INIC is making a major financial investment to fund the upgrades, which include advanced security features, additional private livestreaming video cameras for parents, more space, better classrooms that are more kid-friendly, fresh education tools, new play areas indoors and outdoors, new equipment, and many windows. These improvements will enhance INIC’s already-lofty standards: a secure environment, positive teachers, and Spanish immersion curriculum that challenges and accommodates the unique learning style of every child.
“When we started INIC in 2012, we wanted to offer a family-oriented community and world-class education system,” says director and owner Marytere Ciccone. “Now that the community and education systems are established and thriving, it’s time to provide south Austin families with a vastly improved facility to further enhance the learning and loving environment.”
The new 12,000 square foot facility will be in a family-friendly south Austin shopping center, less than two miles from the original INIC facility. The address is 2100 West William Cannon Drive, Austin, Texas 78745, Suite L (formerly a church). It’s conveniently located in South Oaks Shopping Center, across from Sprouts Market. The shopping center houses family-friendly businesses, including a ballet school, dentist, dry cleaner, nail shop, caterer and a BBVA Compass bank branch.
The new INIC will feature two spacious, privacy-fenced outdoor playgrounds. One of the playgrounds will be under the canopy of a big old oak tree and other greenery. There will also be two spacious indoor gymnasiums, a multi-use area, 15 classrooms, reception area, main office, conference room, library, staff lounge and more.
“The heart and soul of INIC are the parents and their children,” says Mrs. Ciccone. “We are truly blessed with our families – these little scholars love coming here and their parents have helped cultivate a wonderful family environment. While the facility will be vastly improved, some things will never change here – a safe environment, our community feeling, positive teachers, and a Spanish immersion curriculum that’s customized for every child.”
