We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
Freeport is situated in the Brazoria County section of the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area, with a 2010 United States Census population of 12,049. Established as a company town by the Freeport Sulphur Company in 1912, Freeport’s town motto is now “Where the Fun Happens.”
Freeport lives up to its motto with a variety of activities and attractions available to both residents and visitors.
History buffs can brush up on local history at the Freeport Historical Museum, which celebrates the colorful history of the city with exhibits, media rooms and models in a 3,000-square-foot facility.
Boating aficionados can take advantage of the Freeport Municipal Marina, which provides not only boat docking services but also features a guillotine gate designed to protect the harbor in the event of a major storm that causes turbulent water.
Golf enthusiasts love the Freeport Municipal Golf Course, an eighteen-hole facility with a Texas-style layout and a number of carefully placed water hazards. Annual membership options are far more affordable than private club fees, and still provides access to a high-quality course and annual tournaments.
The Port of Freeport is a major pillar of the local economy, offering employment to a significant number of Freeport residents either directly or indirectly.
The Dow Chemical Company‘s Freeport facility in Freeport is the company’s largest, and is also one of the area’s largest employers. The S.F. Sulfur Corporation, formerly known at the Stauffer Chemical Company, is another major area employer. The S.F. Sulfur campus is located in Freeport on thirteen acres, and has been producing several types of processed sulfur since 1916.
Bethel Full Gospel Baptist Church, located at 401 South Avenue H in Freeport, offers an impressive range of activities, ministries and local outreach programs, including Women of Virtue, Kings of the Kingdom, Family Night, Hospitality Ministries, Intercessory Prayer, Youth Ministry, Ministerial Alliance, AFAP Praise Dancers, Pastor’s Task Force and Punch for Christ.
Saint Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Parish, located at 1019 West Sixth Street in Freeport, is part of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and fully bilingual church with services in both Spanish and English.
First Baptist Church of Freeport, at 502 South Brazosport Boulevard, states that its purpose is to “connect people to Christ and His church by helping to grow them as disciples, and equip them to serve through ministry, share through missions, and to honor and glorify God through worship.”
Students living in Freeport attend Jane Long Elementary or O.A. Fleming Elementary, Lanier Middle School, Freeport Intermediate School and Brazosport High School as zoned under the Brazosport Independent School District.
There are no private schools within the Freeport city limits, but there are a number of private education options, both religiously-affiliated and non-sectarian in the surrounding areas. Brazosport Christian School and Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic School are both within ten miles of Freeport, with more options in further outlying areas.
Students attending schools in the Brazosport Independent School District from third through eleventh grade in 2011 scored largely on a par with the state average standard, both falling below and rising above the standard very slightly in either direction.
Childcare options in Freeport are varied, with private and public daycare centers of both the religious and non-sectarian variety, along with early education centers and private preschools. Oftentimes, parents find that private, in-home childcare would be an option more ideally suited to their family, but are hesitant to take on the herculean task of sifting through dozens of applicants, arranging time-consuming in-person interviews and running background checks that manage to be both thorough and compliant with state and Federal employment laws. That’s why we’re proud to offer our services to Freeport families, providing highly-qualified and experienced nannies that have been pre-screened and carefully matched to your individual preferences and needs.
