Our aim is to work together with families to meet the needs of the children. Creative Learning Center promotes a Christ centered place where children of all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed. We focus on aiding in the development of the whole child, as well as spiritually.



We will treat each child with acceptance and sensitivity. We value children as explorers and utilize an early childhood curriculum that focuses on the interest of the children in the classroom. Staff will communicate effectively with children and parents focusing on each child’s strengths and growth within the classroom. We strive to foster a positive relationship between staff and families. Each family is treated with respect and dignity regardless of family background or religion.

"I was skeptical of childcare when I first started looking, but CLC made me feel comfortable. I feel really good about having my son at CLC. He learns things there that I can never get him to do at home."

I love being a part of The Creative Learning Center.  I have experienced teaching in each of the classrooms and I can honestly say, they are all my favorite. I enjoy being a part of the children's  lives and having the privilege of watching them learn and grow. Its a joy to be a part of the families' lives and to work with staff who have a passion for children. I look forward to coming to "play" and learn everyday.
