Preschool is an exciting time for young learners. At Creative Imaginations, preschoolers are encouraged to explore and investigate. Our teachers provide structured activities to help children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in the areas of early literacy, mathematics, science, and emotional maturity. Our days are filled with hands-on experiences to help children become problem solvers and develop a love of lifelong learning.
Preschoolers love to pretend and imitate the world around them. The curriculum we use encompasses play based activities, themed centers and supports that nurture and challenge little learners. Our classroom is full of toys, props and activities to encourage their imaginations to blossom.

We continual work to keep our rooms clean and sanitary.
- Toys and supplies used during the morning are are cleaned and disinfected at naptime and toys and supplies used in the afternoon are cleaned disinfected at the end of the day.
- Children's hands are washed with soap and water before eating, after diaper changes or after using the bathroom, and after playing outside.
- Napping cots are assigned to each child and never shared.
Our mornings are very busy so preschoolers usually do need rest time to help them get through their day. Cots are provided and children may bring a small blanket to use during rest time. White noise and soft music are played during rest time to help children relax and, if needed, to fall to sleep.
All meals and snacks are provided. We also keep filtered water in all of the classrooms so children can get drinks whenever they desire.
We do not require 3 year olds to be potty trained. We know that every child develops at their own pace and some children may take a little longer to be comfortable with using the toilet. We set timers to remind children and teachers that it's time to try to go potty. If your child is potty training at this age, you will need to provide pull ups rather than diapers. Our teachers will assist them when they need to be changed.
Full time, 5 days per week, enrollment is required. Children must arrive no later than 8:45 AM and may attend for up to 10 hours per day. Children must arrive by 8:00 AM to receive breakfast.
