Mission Statement

Creativity means having the power or quality to express yourself in your own way. Children are naturally creative.

Creative Child aims to help children to develop their potential in a creative and nurturing environment that promotes confidence and love for learning. Our unique curriculum is based on active learning and it fosters the emotional, physical, social and cognitive needs of children. Providing a stimulating and professional preschool experience, Creative Child prepares children aged 12 months to 4 years old for the school years.

Creative Child promotes active learning through many different activities where children attain direct and immediate experience while they are doing what they like to do best: playing. Our well-balanced program, dedicated teachers, outstanding facilities and adequate resources provide a nurturing environment, which allows children to use their creativity and discover the world.

Testimonials

I have been a part of the Creative Child Nursery “family” for the past 5 years. My oldest started at the age of 15 months, my second child started at the same age, and my youngest began at the age of 7 months. I love the nursery’s student-led learning approach. I love how the nursery is open and spacious and full of color, light, and life. I love the attention to cleanliness, for both hygienic and aesthetic reasons. I love how genuinely welcoming and caring the staff is, and it means such a great deal to me to have them great my child by name and inquire about my other children (who are no longer even attending the nursery!). I love that there is a nurse on staff who is diligent on checking on the children and is a resource of information. I love the nursery’s commitment to multilingual education. These reasons are enough to make me secure in my choice for this nursery for my children. But this is not why I chose Creative Child for my children nor why I recommend it to my friends and others. My choice of Creative Child Nursery is based upon my children’s experience. All 3 of them have enjoyed going to nursery, have become attached to their teachers, developed playmates, and have built the foundation of a love of learning. My youngest, who is almost 2 years old and still at Creative Child, LOVES his experience. His first words were “In the car!” which is what we say when it is time to go to school. He runs to the door to be put into the car and just can’t wait to be at school. Weekends and holidays can be tragic for him because he loves his nursery experience so much.
It can be heart-wrenching to put your child in nursery, but seeing the joy my children have experienced and seeing how much they have learned (both “academically” and more importantly, socially), I can’t imagine a better place for my children to be. I feel confident that while my children are at Creative Child, they are in a caring, safe, nurturing environment. Thank you for all that you have done for and with my children.

Elena Lopez Koury, Rami’s Mom (2 years old)

Our daughter, Marie Clare, who is two years old, has been attending Creative Child since she was one. As parents, one of the most important decisions we faced was finding a childcare option that would provide the love and care when my husband and I could not. Creative Child has given us the peace of mind knowing that while we are away from Marie Clare, she is loved, she is safe and secure and she is learning experientially! Creative Child has exceeded our expectations in these areas and we feel so very fortunate to have the Creative Child family in our life! Marie Clare LOVES to go to school each and every morning. She loves her teachers who are each amazing along with the friends she has made; we truly love them too! It feels good to have our ‘baby’ nearly drag us out of the house in the morning so she can go “play at school”. Thank you for all that you do, each and every day!

Charlotte & Aubrey, Marie Clare’s parents (2 1/2 years old)

My husband and I are very happy that we chose Creative Child as our nursery for our daughter. The first impression was made when Sofia took us on a school tour and was very patient in explaining to us everything we needed to know from format of teaching, to healthy food options and also showing us the classrooms and activities the children do. The first few weeks were rough for our daughter but you made it a point to listen to our desire to help her overcome her anxiety. She has gone a long way now and is back to her bubbly old self. Our daughter’s third birthday was made special with a huge greeting at the door and a sash which made her feel special. As a parent I also got a first hand experience on how fun the classroom activities are and the effort and care given by Ms. Pari, Ms. Dina, Ms. Felmary and Ms. Jannie. Another bonus that you have done for us this year are the classroom photos. We get to see our kids in action. We also appreciate the open communication and emails you send us to update us constantly. Keep up the good work Creative Child team! We are looking forward to more of your family day activities in the future!

Kristine Tantengco, Bianca’s mom (3 years old)

My experience in creative child is very good. My daughter is more than happy to come at the nursery and this is the best thing that a parent can ask. She started last year in January when she was 1 year old and now she is enjoying more all the activities. I am very satisfied and I consider this nursery as a big family!!!!
