About Our School

Creative Kids has been committed to providing young children safe and nurturing learning environments since we opened our doors in January 2001. Creative Kids Brewster was our first location and we now have five centers that serve families throughout Hudson Valley.

Our schools are a welcoming place where every child can grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Your child will participate in a wide variety of experiences where they’ll learn about themselves and the world around them.

Our Programs

Kind Child

Kind Child LogoKind child is a program that helps us attend to the emotional well-being of every child in our care. We focus on developing valuable character traits such as Thankfulness, Friendship, and a Positive Self-Image every two months and different social-emotional skills monthly. Our goal is to create positive friendships throughout our school and to strengthen every child’s social skills.

Director

I have been in childcare for the past 13 years and a Director for 3 years. I’ve taught infants to preschoolers and I enjoy learning about the different developmental aspects of all age groups. I graduated with an Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts in 2005 and a Bachelor’s Degree in English in 2010. I recently joined the Creative Kids Family and I love the close family atmosphere that Creative Kids offers in all of our centers. The most rewarding parts of being a Director is watching children of all ages grow and building relationships with all of our families.

Assistant Director

I became involved in education because I enjoy working with children of all ages. I find it fulfilling to teach and guide young children towards becoming the very best person they can be! I graduated from Hamilton College in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in American Studies and joined Creative Kids as an Administrative Assistant in the Fall of 2016. As an administrator at Creative Kids, my goal to be a source of fun and education.

In my spare time, I enjoy going to concerts, camping, kayaking, and going to Yankee games.

I have toured so many different schools and after touring Creative Kids it was an easy decision. It was clean, organized and I felt safe leaving my toddler in the program. The teachers are super friendly and helpful. along with the Director and Assistant Director.

My 1 year old daughter has been going to this daycare and loves it! It was tough and emotional dropping her off the first few weeks because she didn't want to leave my arms, but soon after she was so excited to see and join her teachers and her friends. That made me feel so much more comfortable and at ease with Creative Kids. Additionally, due to the ever changing rules dealing with the pandemic, we finally got to go inside and see my daughter's class and meet her teachers - I couldn't be happier with how wonderful they treat and care for her. I recommend Creative Kids Childcare Center to those worried parents like me - you will not be disappointed!

My son Noah and daughter Olivia have been attending Creative Kids since they were both a year old. My son recently turned four and my daughter is going on 3. They both look forward to going to daycare everyday!! The atmosphere is amazing and the teachers are great, can't ask for anything more. Thumbs up to them all!!!! Thanks for always keeping me updated on their day.

Both my grandchildren attend Creative Kids and it has truly given them a wonderful foundation to start out with.. all of the teachers there have been so loving and so caring and so attentive to my grandchildren And their individual needs and have played a vital role in their foundation as far as social interaction, learning and following direction which are such important skills in every day life . I truly recommend the program. I have found this to be a loving and nurturing and safe environment where children can grow and play and just have fun..
