Humble is a city north of downtown Houston down I69 north, close to Atascocita and Kingwood. Humble became a center for commercial activity due to the region’s large oil industry. Also, the Shell Houston Open, an annual PGA Tour stop, is played at Golf Club of Houston, located in an unincorporated area near Humble. The City of Humble website boasts the annual events hosted and the dozens of youth organizations they sponsor.

Childcare and Schools

We know finding great child care and schools is a daunting task.  There are hundreds of great day care options in this area, but finding the right one for your family takes work. For K-12, the area is served by the aptly named Humble ISD. There are a few great private schools in the area, like St Mary Magdalene School, Frassati Catholic High School, Christian Life Center Academy, and more. There are also many charter schools across Houston, like YES Prep and Harmony Schools. Lone Star College also has a Humble branch.  

Perfect Date Night/Staycation

Mommy breaks like date nights, an occasional brunch, and staycations are an important part of self care.
