Miss Bonnie has an Amazing school and an even more loving, creative and experienced staff! Her teachers love what they do and are extremely passionate in making the best experience for the students in their class. I truly believe the staff is what makes this school such a wonderful learning enviornment. I have had two children go to CLC and graduating from the Primary Learning Community. Which by the way is a must! The two teachers (Ms. Amy, Ms. Helen and Ms. Margo) that my children had in the PLC were amazing, and really listened to the children. They geared their lessons around the individual child and worked with each on their level. What they say about teachers being the school is very much the case in this wonderful enviornment. I will continue to praise this school and all it has done for my children. Their love of learning began at the age of three and continue now, through middle school and onto high school. I will always cherish what CLC has done for me and my family. If you have a young child, do not hesitate to visit or enroll your child. Rest assure, you will not be disappointed!

Our children have thrived at Creative Learning Center in every possible aspect. This school has provided our children w/an incredible foundation from its unique curriculum, philosophy, environment & methods of teaching. Whether the subject be reading, math, foreign languages, science, cooking, music, creative play, & geography, CLC teaches w/an approach that young children soak up & understand. CLC is a unique blend of traditional nursery school, montessori style & what is happening now in preschool education. The Director is constantly educating herself on newest & best methods of educating children. She is the most passionate educator we know! CLC fosters kindness, independence, respect towards others & responsibility for one's decisions. These traits are emphasized in every classroom. Our children have carried their knowledge & experiences from CLC to grammar school where they have entered at the top of their classes. We truly feel we owe where our children stand today in school & the school our children currently attend to CLC & the support & encouragement of the Dir., Bonnie Pauska. Bonnie wants only the best for her students while attending her school and in their future.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
