Our aim to this site is to assist you learn about day care in general and about Creative Beginnings in detail. To accomplish that, we currently have included many pages that describe our program, activities and philosophies. In addition to the narrative, we've included many pictures of our creative children that illustrate our program. As time progresses, our site will expand and improve.

From Our Website
Creative Beginnings is an independent, privately owned, early childhood center. We offer a year round, full day program, serving the child care and educational needs of working families with children ages 18 months to 5 years old. Our center, which is New York State licensed, strives to give the highest quality childcare and early education to each child in our program. We are strongly committed to providing a healthy, safe, and enriched environment where children learn at their own pace using individual styles of learning and growth.
For many of the children entering our child care center, the toddler room is their first experience with any formalized group of children. At Creative Beginnings, we want this first experience to be a very enjoyable one for each child. It's an important age and an important classroom. As toddlers are learning to talk and communicate with each other and the teachers, they are also learning to socialize. Our toddler program teaches social skills through-out each day in a positive environment where each child is respected and cared for in a loving way.
At Creative Beginnings we believe that young children learn by hands on active engagement with their environment due mostly to their natural desire to play and discover. Children are innately curious and learn by touching, observing, experimenting, crating, pretending and reacting with others. Each day we follow a predictable schedule, including periods of active indoor and outdoor play, "group meeting time", art projects, story time, class games and quiet rest time, lunch and snacks. A rich learning environment of various activities and materials is in every classroom.
