We started our two year old there a few weeks ago and it feels like home. The teachers are excellent and they truly care about your child and their development.

Loving teachers, attention to children, great teacher-parent communication, fair amount of extra-carricular activities. My son started at 2 in pre-primary room. We tried other school during summer vacation just to realize that there's nothing as good as creative care. It's the best! Needless to say, we're back there for good!

Great elementary program! Individualized yet challenging curriculum. Opportunities for educational and personal growth are abundant. Creative and fun excursions.

This is a very loving environment for any child. If you are looking for an easy transition for your child this is the place. It's especially great for working parents because they are open from 7-6. They also have a montessori elementary school.

Our daughter has been at the school for roughly five years. The teachers are absolutely wonderful and very supportive! It is a very positive and nurturing environment. I would recommend Creative Care to anyone.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
