    Quality Child Care in Corpus Christi

    A-Bar-Z Ponderosa has provided quality child care in Corpus Christi since 1973. Many of our children’s parents were former students of Ponderosa. We offer full or part-time care for children from ages infant to 12 years. We provide a safe, nurturing environment that allows children the freedom to explore, play, and learn. Nutritious meals and snacks are provided. Our staff is dedicated to the highest quality care for your child.
