Crystal Falls is pleased to welcome our latest commercial member, Primrose Schools, building an accredited private preschool on the north side of Osage Dr. at Lakeline Boulevard. Carla Cooper, Construction Project Manager for Primrose, noted construction has begun. Residents are excited to have a preschool located conveniently within the community. The goal of Primrose Schools is to help children have fun while building Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy HeartsTM. Their vision is to deliver the best and most trusted early childhood education and child care services for families across America. The Balanced Learning SystemTM supports children’s social-emotional, cognitive, creative and physical development. This philosophy is integrated into the curriculum through child initiated activity, teacher guided classroom demonstrations and encouragement, guidance in essential character traits and behaviors and an atmosphere of trust and personal caring. Child-related themes such as space, transportation or jungle animals provide a meaningful context for learning through interesting topics. Children write about the topics, create related art projects, sing theme-related songs and pretend with creative movement and free play. Enrichment programs that include fitness activities, nature study and cultural diversity add another dimension to children’s learning experience. Each child participates in monthly discussions with a focus on safety and personal well-being. Scheduled activities include visits by local senior citizens, role playing that encourages values such as honesty, compassion, respect and good judgment and communityminded lessons that encourage helping others. Academics are integrated into the day as the curriculum balances understanding of mathematical concepts with essential skills and problem solving. In a balance of teacher-guided and child-initiated activities, children develop an understanding of numbers and numerical relationships, operations, measurement, and patterns to solve problems and reason mathematically. Each classroom has a special collection of engaging books and writing materials that are age appropriate.

The Houston-based master-planned community developer will unveil its next major project in May at Clearwater Ranch near Liberty Hill, just north of Leander in Williamson County. The Lookout Group also developed Crystal Falls in Leander, which is largely build-out and was profiled in a previous Austin Business Journal story.
“We have been basically sitting on this land for over a decade waiting until it was ripe,” said Bill Hinckley, president of The Lookout Group.
The completion of the 183A toll road has played a pivotal role in making the area accessible and marketable, Hinckley said.
The 600-acre community is approved for about 500 homes, creating what will be a low-density, picturesque community. The area once was a bull pasture for the 2,000-acre Drennan Cattle Ranch.
The selected homebuilders are Kentucky-based Drees Custom Homes, Leander-based Giddens Homes and San Antonio-based Sitterle Homes. Construction on model homes will begin in May. Home prices will range from $350,000 to $600,000.
The company also will soon build the 1,500-acre Esperanza community in Boerne near San Antonio.
Site work construction has begun for the Esperanza community east of Boerne. The official groundbreaking was held in early December 2014. The Lookout Group is the owner/developer of this master planned community, which has been in pre-development since 2008. It is now underway with construction of the new entrances and street network.

Negotiations continue to move in a positive direction for both the city and new Esperanza owner as they consider revised terms to the subdivision 2008 development agreement.
