Walnut Creek Academy’s mission is to provide a creative learning environment with a firm foundation of faith in God and in themselves that emphasizes on social, emotional, and intellectual development to develop children’s desire to be lifelong learners with creative minds, strong bodies, and kind hearts.



We recognize that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; and that all children need to succeed. Our goal is to provide a joyful learning environment that encourages children to reach their educational and personal potential in a safe, developmentally appropriate environment.




Walnut Creek Academy doesn’t just emphasize academic excellence. We foster it through programs such as our award winning Creative Curriculum ® program for Preschool and our innovative Bible Project.

Watch your child grow & thrive

At Walnut Creek Academy, we don’t take your child’s development lightly. Growing minds need nourishment and positive encouragement.


But development is about more than just intellectual curiosity and academic stimulation. They need guidance to flourish. They need reinforcement. They need positive self esteem.

A child’s true potential can only be fully nourished when it integrates mind, body and spirit. Our award-winning curriculum is matched with all the physical activity your child’s growing body needs, in addition to a learning environment that emphasizes creativity and personalized attention.

It’s also highly affordable. Unlike other private academies and preschools in Mansfield, we don’t charge extra for add costs beyond core tuition. In fact, you’ll find the comparison in cost is considerably less than other full onsite childcare services.


Hear from happy parents:​


“…It was already hard navigating the pandemic alone- finding childcare during the pandemic for my 2 year old seemed daunting. But from enrollment, to meeting my sons’ teachers, to getting a tour everything has been easy, professional, comfortable and clean! [My son] loves the school, loves the teachers, and his vocabulary has expanded since starting there- that alone is gold. But as a parent I’m so appreciative of all the teachers and staff there- you can see how hard they work…”


"My daughter absolutely loves it there. I’ve watched her grow and develop so much over the last few months. Her teachers are wonderful and I never have any doubts about her being taken care of or her safety while she’s there. I know they’ll contact me if there are any issues. The price of tuition is affordable for the quality of education.


"Both of my daughters have attended Walnut Creek Academy for their Pre-K programs. One of daughters is still currently enrolled and we love the faith foundation this organization is bringing into her everyday life. The teachers are great at communicating and care so personally for my daughter. We love WCA!"
