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.

The Creative Curriculum

Creative Kids utilizes The Creative Curriculum® in our classrooms. The Creative Curriculum® helps our teachers create a high-quality learning environment where children can become creative, confident thinkers. This curriculum is grounded in 38 research-based objectives for development and learning, which support active learning in all developmental areas.

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.

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.

My 4 year old goes there and she is learning so much. I am a teacher in an elementary school and the curriculum at Creative Kids is preparing her 100% for Kindergarten and her elementary school years. The teachers are amazing and they serve healthy meals there. My daughter is learning Spanish, science, reading, technology and many other subjects that make it fun for her..Every day she is excited to go there.

Creative kids is a great school! The teachers and administrators have gone above and beyond to help both my children the last 4 years. They even accommodate the special services for my son when it was needed. Everyday my kids are happy to attend school and as a mother I can go to work relieved knowing they are in good hands. Each day both kids come home with great stories and very creative projects. I would very much recommend Creative Kids to my family and friends.

Creative Kids has helped both of our girls grow so much. We always know that our girls are loved, cared for and safe. Our oldest was ready for kindergarten and we know our youngest will be too!

My son Robbie LOVES Creative Kids in Brewster!! The staff are friendly, fun, and always engaging! Cadence sets forth a great curriculum full of art, movement, songs, and play. My child always wants to go to school and misses it when he has a day off! The connections he has made with the other children in his class have been invaluable; especially during the COVID pandemic where socialization is at a premium. As a father who is also a teacher, I (like my wife) also highly recommend the childcare/preschool programming here! My son has been very happy with all of his teachers. He simply adores his current teacher Miss Gina. We love her too. She has become like part of the family!
