My goddaughter attended The Creek for two years, and she grew so much as a person during this time! I really credit their God-centered learning program and the wonderful teaching staff for helping her not only get ready for Kindergarten (she was totally ready!) but also for helping her grow up into a wonderful friend to others!

My kids loved this school! They felt safe and loved and learned lots! They blossomed here socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and academically. Each class is age-appropriate for their development and they grew in their confidence as individuals. I can''t say enough about the teachers and staff. Each child (I had 3) was personally nurtured in that environment. Any fears I had were allayed by the staff and teachers. Any concerns were handled well. They had opportunity to explore other areas of interest in enrichment classes. If we could have continued their education here, we would have.

The Creek has been a amazing school for all of my kids. My oldest son attended a few years ago and because he not only had such a great time but also learned so much I knew it was the place to send my other kids. It is a great environment all around!

My goddaughter attended here for two years prior to heading off to Kindergarten, and it was a great experience for her. She made great friends, and learned so much! She was fully prepared for Kindergarten - not just academically, but socially and emotionally. I love that the campus feels like a school campus, only smaller, so its not so overwhelming, but is a good approximation for what it will be like at an elementary school. My own little one will be attending as soon as she''s old enough too.

My daughter attends the Creek two days a week and loves it! She has blossomed so much since attending. She knows her letters and number so well now! She had made great friends and is loved by her teachers. The staff at the creek are warm, compassionate, friendly, and so much more! I feel blessed by my daughter attending this preschool.

Several years ago after trying another school, we knew that The Creek was the right place for my daughter. My son now has been at this school for three years and he absolutely loves his teachers! He can''t wait to go to school every morning and always talks about what they''re learning. They have a great balance between academics and developmental play. I know he will be well-prepared for kindergarten. If they had a program for infants we would be there in a heartbeat for my youngest!

My daughter attended The Creek when she was four. She was a shy girl wh blossomed in her social skils and confidence. The class size was small, the teacher wasfabulous and the curriculum has a developmental approach with enough academic challenge. They are affordable compared to other preschools in the area with early day care prior to work and until 6 pm. They are family friendly, Christ centered and offer other programs as athletics and music. Their staff always has a smile. My son is now there and fully enjoying the benefits of this program. He is growing not only in academics but in his relationship and knowledge of Jesus. Priceless! Furthermore, he will begin their transitional kindergarden in the Fall of 2014. We are more than happy with the school.
