I have worked with young children for over 18 years in several centers but my "roots" began at Creative Corner! Pamela Humphries had just moved into her Audry Lane location and I was one of the first teachers hired to work in that center. I remember waiting for the building to be completed so I could get started working with young children! Mrs. Humphries taught me so much and as I worked for her I learned that her school had the best reputation in the area for education of young children. Teachers were held to a high standard and from her successes through the years I can see that they still are! Her program and philosophy has always been that children be exposed to educational experiences as well as creative artisitic ones as well. I only wish I still lived in the area so I could still work for Creative Corner! Andrea (Debbie) Deshotel

My children attend Creative Corner. This pre-school is amazing! The teachers are so wonderful and they truely care about the children. My 3 year old has blossomed while attending Creative Corner! She is learning new things every day. I know that she will be very prepared when she starts kindergarden! I have a 4 mth old in the nursery there and I am so pleased with the care he recives. The teachers interact with the babies and they love on each one of them. It is so wonderful knowing you are leaving your children in caring hands! They are very observant of the childrens needs-emotionaly, physically and mentally. The Director is so incredible. She takes time to listen to the parents and keeps things running very smoothly. I have only wonderful things to say about Creative Corner!

I love the school and they also have a daycare at another location , I love both of them the school director and her assistant are always on top of things, they are very patient specially when my child had a hard time staying due to anxiety of being in a new place , they never frowned or complained they always reasured him and myself , curriculum is excellent my son is learning so much , I also had a nephew that went there for 4 years and is now in middle school at cunningham ,has never struggled always receiving commended on taks , i believe creative corner provides children with a good base for school, if they get a good base in early years your child will never struggle in the future .

My daughter has attended Creative Corner since she was 2 1/2 yrs old. She is now going to be 7 in a month. She absolutely loves it there, but first & foremost she loves the teachers! With every different grade (Pre-school 1,2 & 3: kinder & 1st grade) came a new teacher and she loved them all. Also, the curriculum they use is fantastic! I can remember she was already writing her name in Pre-school and her reading amazes my husband & I. I have refered my family members to this school and would absolutely refer it to anyone else looking for daycare or private schooling. These ladies do an awesome job all under the direction of Mrs. Humphries -way to go Pam! My daughter is going to definitely miss everyone. 'Creative' really does give true meaning to the school and the hard work that these teachers do. r saucedo

Our daughter began attending Creative Corner since last summer when she turned three. She absolutely loves all of her teachers and staff that greets her, she loves her 'friends', and loves learning. My husband and I are very pleased with the fact that she has developed using her fine motor skills, developed early literacy skills, writes her name, has increased her vocabulary tremendously, counts, and can even recognize some sight words. Again, she is only three! At home we have noticed she loves to 'read' books by looking at the pictures and her pretend play has become much more imaginative in a positive manner. I can see that Creative Corner has high expectations and that is what makes them so successful. We appreciate all that Creative Corner does. As a teacher and parent, I am very proud of their program and would recommend them without hesitation...jj

My son attended CC for two years for pre-k and Kindergarten. He entered first grade at public school and was tested for the GT program. At our meeting, his teacher informed me that he was reading on an 8th grade reading level. I was extatic. He had a great foundation started for his education due to Creative Corner. He remained in the GT program through out school and as a Sr in high school, in all AP classes. This was all due to the positive foundation he was taught at CC. His teachers (some still employed there) and the leadership from Pam Humphries molded his future in a very positive way. They sincerely care about the kids and the parents involvement. I recommend this school to anyone and could not be more thankful to the staff at CC. He loved attending which made me even more thankful.

Creative Corner has been such a blessing to our family!! The loving care from all personnel, from the Director all the way to the lunchroom assistant, have made me feel so secure in the knowledge that my kids are with someone at all times who loves them and cares for them just as I would if I were with them! On top of that, their academic program is beyond compare--my kids are/were reading--by themselves--before kindergarten! The love for reading that was instilled in them by their school will help them value reading as they progress through their education. Thank you, CC! and Thank You, Ms. Humphries, for providing such an outstanding program for the children of the North Channel area! We love you!

I have had both of my children attend Creative Corner. The foundation that they received in their education was phenomonal. My son is now in first grade at a public school and my daughter will attend elementary school next fall and they are both better prepared for school than most other kids in their grade level. They will continue to attend the after school program at Creative Corner. I am very thankful for all the staff their for their comittment to young children's education.

Creative Corner is and has been an excellent experience for my daughter. She is in Kindergarten and reading at a 2nd grade level. Her teachers love her as if she is their child. The feedback has always been positive and I am saddened that she cannot attend 1st grade as they will no longer offer it next year. I am confident that upon entering public school next year she will be advanced and in the GT program. This would not be possible if it weren't for the nurturing environment and advanced curriculum that Ms. Humphries and her staff have instilled in their students.

My daughter attended this school for 3years. She is now in the 1st grade and currently participates in their after school program. I am at peace knowing that my child is in a secure environment with caring individuals. The curriculum used provided my daughter with a strong foundation in reading.

My son has been attending Creative Corner for the past two years, and even though it saddens me the school will not be continuing with their first grade curriculum, I am confident my son will have all the skills he will need to excel in public school. His reading and math skills are exemplary and I give all credit to his dedicated teachers at creative corner. The teachers really go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure all children go beyond the basics. I can truly see the results and I know my child I getting a top notch education. My child went from being a shy child who struggled to read and has blossomed into a bright, well mannered, and outgoing child who in turn reads me bedtime stories!! I am so proud of his achievements and simply cannot thank everyone enough, from the director to the support staff, for doing a superb job. S Garza

This is my baby's first year at Creative Corner and I just love it. I even told all my friends to enrol their kids so their kids would not miss the chance/opportunity with the school's experience. . My baby is 4 years old and I am amazed with the words she uses when describing words. She already knows how to read and write and can even add and subtract. Go Creative Corner!

My son has been in the CC pre-K program and I have already enrolled him in Kindergarten there next year. Within a month of attending the school, my son could READ! He can also add and subtract and he has learned tons of Spanish vocabulary. We are so proud of what he has learned. In addition, he loves going to school. It is such a warm, friendly environment. His teacher has so much love for her students. I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of the program and highly recommend it!

I have enjoyed both of my children's experience with Creative Corner. I feel like CC gave my son a wonderful head start for school and he is currently excelling in the classroom because of the skills that they teach . My youngest is currently learning new things everyday. I am so impressed by the teacher's love and dedication for all of the children. As an educator, I know the gift one has to have to teach children and I highly recommend CC to anyone who wants a school that provides a strong learning and loving environment. A. Sterling

My son, niece and cousin all currently attend CC in different classes and are doing fantastic!!! My Daughter attended from the age of 3 years old through 1st grade. CC did an excellent job preparing her for Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart where she is a straight A student in 5th grade. ALL of the teachers that have not moved on to advance in their careers remember my daughter and hug her each time she comes in to pick up her brother. I appreciate the fact that CC will work with parents to rectify poor behavior within the classrooms. Like all parents, we want the best for our children and when teachers are required to focus on poor behavior constantly it negates the ability to teach the other children. I would recommend CC to everyone!

My children went to this school and had great experiences. We started off with both of our children having learning disabilities and now they are in the Gifted and Talented at Crosby ISD. In addition to being in GT they are also both in Accelerated Math . The director/owner of this school had patience with us and our children. She walked us through the process of having our children evaluated and never stopped asking us if we needed more assistance. She definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. If anyone has had problems with her or the staff, then they were obviously not being active in their children s school life or taking recommendations/advice from this extremely experienced, educated, and caring person! Anyone wanting their children to get ahead and start their kids on the right track to having a solid foundation for education and etiquette, then Creative Corner is it!

Having moving here from LA, where my daughter attended a great Montossori school, I was very careful when chosing a preschool program. She had gained so much information and I wanted to continue the progress she had made. CC was recommended to me by a coworker. I have been very pleased with the care, support, education that my daughter has received. My only problem is that she wants to ride the 'big bus' to school everyday. Hats off to Creative Corner's Teachers, Director, and Staff! T. Murphy
