"My family loves Creative Child Care! The teachers and front office staff are always so pleasant and upbeat, they create a really positive environment. I love that the curriculum changes week to week, it keeps my son intrigued. Our now five-year-old son is always so excited to get up and go to preschool. He is learning leaps and bounds thanks to his awesome teachers! I always feel very comfortable talking to them about anything that comes to mind, and they are attentive to our feedback, as well."

"The teachers are AMAZING! I feel like they treat all the kids as if they were their own. The center is school oriented which I love because it gets them ready for school."

"My daughters have been going to Creative Child Care for almost 3 years now. I could not be more pleased with the facility and staff. I love that the facility is always clean and organized. The staff is so friendly every time I drop my children off and pick them up. My daughters have learned so much since they have been with this daycare. Creative Child Care not only meets, but exceeds, my expectations for the care my daughters receive."
