Sugar & Spice Children's Academy has been serving Guadalupe county since 2001. Serving infants through youth 12 yrs old. It's our philosophy to positively impact children's lives! It's our number one passion!

Who We Are

Sugar & Spice was founded in 1993 in Nixon TX. The owner Tanya Casas had been Child coordinator for Norwegian Cruise Lines. She came back on vacation and fell in love and started her family. Her passion had always been children. Tanya opened her first center in 1993 in Nixon, TX and moved her business to Seguin, TX in 1996.


Tanya’s parents Richard and Kathleen Faulkner decided to go into business with her in 2001. Richard worked for Nixon-Smiley for 37 years where he was a coach, teacher, assistant superintendent, and superintendent.

Kathleen worked as a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade teacher for 18 years and then was an elementary librarian for the following 12 years for Nixon-Smiley. Both were getting close to retirement. With all three so involved and experienced with children it was a win-win!


In 2006 Tina Garcia (Tanya’s sister) joined the

company. She monitors and regulates healthy and nutritional meals for our children. We all wanted to create a place that was welcoming and educational.

“I love seeing the children walk in with smiles on their faces and begging their parents to let them stay a little longer. If you can make a difference in a child’s life you have truly succeeded.” -Tanya
