Creative Beginnings opened its doors in 1982 with the goal of providing high quality childcare to St. Mary's County.
Licensed by the State of Maryland and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, our mission is to assure that your child receives the best care available.
Our school is a private preschool-day care center serving children from infancy through 5th grade.
Young children learn best through manipulation of materials and hands-on experiences.
These activities are carefully planned and facilitated by knowledgeable teachers.
This learning looks very much like play - but play with purpose and intent.
Teachers organize and display materials so that children use them to figure things out, practice skills, and learn new concepts.
Children are allowed enough time to explore those materials again and again.
Repetition and success develops the confidence to take risks and try more complex and demanding activities.
We believe in a developmental approach to education and that children go through an orderly series of developmental stages but at different rates.
National accreditation is essential to our mission of maintaining the highest standards of care available.
