Creative Play

Creative Play is a school year program running September through May. The program is structured to make your child's first classroom experience an exciting, creative, positive learning experience. Activities are planned with an emphasis being placed on developing your child's imagination, peer socialization and creative skills. Some of the activities will include stories, songs, fingerplays, crafts, small and large motor activities in addition to free time to spend with their classmates and friends. Child must be toilet trained.

We are sad that we are unable to run 2020-2021 year. Watch for information about an open house in March for next year.
