Creative Children's Center

At Creative Children's Center we believe in building a child's self esteem on a foundation of acceptance, encouragement and respect.
Each student's ideas are nurtured producing an environment conducive to developing independence, creativity, and confidence.
Children are encouraged to solve problems while they explore and interact with ideas and the materials presented.
Education forms a partnership with the child's own interests, creating a lifelong love to learn.
CCC embraces constructivist education while incorporating the Reggio Approach to projects and learning.
Constructivism is not a “method” of teaching, but rather a theory regarding how we all learn.
Constructivist educators put the emphasis on the process, and instead of how “best to teach”, we strive for “how best to learn”.

We love Creative Children's Center! The teaching staff are truly amazing. They work to find the passions and interests of all their students, and then manage to incorporate them into a meaningful curriculum. They encourage even their youngest students to work together and support one another in exploration and problem solving. As a parent, I have learned so much by being a part of this community. I was a little nervous about helping in the classroom, but it is actually a lot of fun and a great way to get to know the other kids and parents. I couldn't imagine a better place for my children and my family!

Innovative programs provide experiential learning that allow your child to blossom. Lots of hands on arts and science with a large variety of materials, since its play based it really instills a love of learning early. A great school with caring and involved community of teachers and parents!
