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 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.

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.

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.

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!

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
