Hear What Parents Have To Say...
Our two year old started at Creative Play in June 2021. The staff takes cleanliness and the pandemic very seriously. They helped us complete his potty training and they care deeply in regards to childhood development through a play based program. The playground areas are huge and include a garden the kids learn to grow food. Very glad we found Creative Play!!

I am so thankful I found this preschool! My son was comfortable his first week attending. All of the staff are very friendly & make you feel like family. My child is getting the attention that he needs & comes home everyday with something new he has learned. If your looking for a place that is safe & a great fun learning environment I strongly recommend Creative Play.
