Creative Care Children’s School is dedicated to providing a balanced approach to learning for every child. Our educators provide a nurturing and caring place for early childhood education. By playing, exploring and learning through hands-on experiences and engaging classroom activities with others in a fun, safe and healthy environment, every child will be successful.
We provide a balanced approach to learning so that every child has the opportunity to learn and grow. Each activity is designed with a special lesson in mind. Our goal at Creative Care Children’s School is to provide a curriculum that focuses on every child’s social-emotional development, cognitive development, oral language and vocabulary, physical development and creating a life-long love for learning and strong self-esteem.
All of our classrooms follow a central theme for the week, which introduces the children to new topics and teaches them about the world around them. Every morning starts with a morning circle time that greets the children and introduces them to the activities for the day. Our teachers then guide the children throughout the day through fun activities such as creating art, making music, reading together and outdoor activities. Children also have designated times throughout the day to explore in their classroom’s learning centers, which encourages them to learn through hands-on experiences of their choice.
