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. Schools in Kingwood are a part of either Humble ISD or New Caney ISD, which are great school districts. There are a few private schools in Kingwood, like The Covenant Preparatory School {PK-12}, St. Martha Catholic School {PK-8}, Pines Montessori School {Toddler-Middle School}, Christian Life Center Academy {PK-12}, and Frassati Catholic High School. There are also many charter schools across Houston, like YES Prep and Harmony Schools. There is also a branch of the Lone Star College System in Kingwood:: Lone Star College-Kingwood, a two-year community college.

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