The philosophy of The Creative Curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Because all children learn through active exploration of their environment, Creative Curriculum emphasizes the critical role the quality of the environment plays in the learning process. Based on the latest research about how young children develop, our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners.

Infants (ages 6 weeks to 12 months): Our attentive staff accommodates your infant's individual needs and schedule.Throughout the day, the children begin learning social skills and educational concepts through various activities. Singing, dancing, creating art, and playing outdoors are just a few of the sensory experiences truly making this a wonderful start to the school environment.
Toddlers (12 – 36 months): Children learn about themselves, their feelings, and about others, as they socialize and participate in group activities. Nurturing teachers provide age-appropriate activities and a balance of active and quiet activities to match and stimulate development. Early literacy is promoted through letter recognition, stories, rhymes, songs and art.
Pre-School (3 – 5 years): We concentrate on preparing children for their next steps into school and life. Social growth and a developmental approach to academics are addressed throughout the year.
