Figment Creative Pre-K at a glance:
- Monday through Thursday, 9AM to 1PM
- Space limited to 12 students
- Enrollment options between 1 and 4 days a week are available, but your child may only attend on the set day/s of the week you select
- Set monthly fee regardless of absences or holiday closures. Tuition is based on a total fee for the school year, but is broken into monthly payments to make it easier for the families we serve. Since we class begins midway through the month, August will be prorated to reflect that.

About our teachers:
Amy Hawkins is originally from Corpus Christi and has a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Texas. While interning at the Texas School for the Deaf’s Pre-K program, she fell in love with early childhood education and in 2014, she received her Masters in Elementary Education.
Having worked with children in a variety of settings — including play-based preschool, special-ed inclusion, and Reggio Emilia and Montessori programs — Amy draws from a range of education ideas to create an environment that supports creativity, exploration, and child-guided learning. She believes the classroom should encourage focus, independence, and creativity. It should also be a community, where children learn from one another.
Maggie Bencivenga spent four years teaching children ages 3-6 in Istanbul, Turkey. She’s passionate about SEL (Social & Emotional Learning) facilitation and is skilled in finding opportunities for mindful movement. Maggie grew up not far from Austin, and earned a BA right down the road in San Marcos.
