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.

We truly feel we owe where our children stand today in school to Creative Learning Center.
