School Reviews

Our children have thrived at Creative Learning Center in every possible aspect. This school has provided such an incredible foundation for our children from its unique curriculum, philosophy, environment and methods of teaching children. Whether the subject be reading, math skills, foreign languages, sciences, cooking, computers, musical instruments, creative play, geography, the teachers of Creative Learning Center touch upon all aspects with an approach that young children soak up and understand. In our opinion, Creative Learning Center is a unique blend of traditional nursery school, montessori style nursery school and whatever is happening now in preschool education. The Director is constantly educating herself on the newest and perhaps best methods of educating young children. She is the most passionate person we know when it comes to educating children and her job! This is clearly evident in how the staff teach and the energy in the school. Creative Learning also fosters independence, respect towards others, taking responsibility for one's own actions and kindness. These traits are constantly emphasized in every classroom all day. Our children have carried their knowledge and experiences from Creative Learning Center to grammar school where they have entered at the top of their classes. We truly feel we owe where our children stand today in school to Creative Learning Center.
