From Our Website

We believe in developmental learning that is conducted at a pace that supports each child's individual needs and interests, offered in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. Our learning programs are structured with individual differences and developmentally appropriate practices in mind. We believe in hands-on learning incorporating some montessori school activities, with a focus on social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. We are committed to working with parents and teachers for the benefit of the child.


In 1962, our founder, Jean Pedone, opened the doors of a co-op preschool program in a church in Garfield Heights, Ohio. She was a pioneer and avid storyteller, whose passion was working with and educating children. Jean started this preschool program with just a few students. Who could have imagined this program would blossom into three state-of-the-art Creative Early Learning Centers run by the same caring and loving family. Jean was a risk-taker. When she realized there were no quality preschool programs in the community, she set to work to make a difference and started a program of her own.

This is why we take pride in maintaining a Step Up To Quality level for your family. Your child has 1,892 days from the day they are born until they enter kindergarten. What happens on this journey lays the foundation for success in school and life. You can be sure that Creative Early Learning Center Child Care & Preschool will provide a learning and development program whose level of quality exceeds Ohio's day care licensing standards.

This means our programs will provide Kindergarten readiness for your child. We chose these curricula because they match an academic focus with play-based learning and exploration.

Our Fit Kids program promotes physical activity and nutrition as cornerstones of living a healthy life. We know that when children are physically fit and have proper nutrition, they are better able to explore the world and meet academic goals. In addition to an hour or more of free play every day on our Playground or in our Large Muscle Room, our children are offered structured physical activities that focus on building fundamental movement and motor skills like climbing, balancing, running, skipping, throwing, and kicking.
