About Creative Kids Preschool in Brewster

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.

Assistant Director

Beginning in 1993, my childcare journey has been a dynamic progression from teacher’s aide to lead teacher, then to office support, culminating in my new role as assistant director. Early childhood education captivates me for its role in nurturing children’s growth, communication, and playful learning. Outside work, you’ll find me cherishing family time, hiking with my dog Snickers, enjoying beach serenity, and diving into captivating reads.

Wonderful daycare with phenomenal teachers. We have been to 3 different daycares/Pre-K schools and this is by far the best. It's bright and cheerful. There is a low turn over rate with teachers. They hold adorable events for families to meet. My kids are always happy and can not wait to go again. They have a great curriculum that really helped my child prepare for kindergarten. Just a fantastic school and I highly recommend it.

The aides, teachers and admin staff at creative kids are kind, compassionate and attentive. We enter the class and have a conversation with the teachers/aides each day. They are so patient with us and welcoming. There is an app I keep on my phone and I track his day. I also enjoy the pictures they post daily. I’m so grateful for their communication. My son is thriving. He is happy. He is having all his meals, diaper changes, naps, and plays with his friends and teachers. I’ve witnessed, first hand before entering the room, the beautiful interactions my son has had with his caregivers and other babies. The app initially really helped with my anxiety and transition back to work. Having the ability to watch my son interact with others his wonderful !

After trying several daycares in our area and not having great experiences, a friend recommended Creative Kids. My son is so happy here! The teachers and administrators are so kind and welcoming and have done everything possible to make my son's transition into his new school easy. We love that they provide all meals so we don't have to worry about packing anything, the center is light, bright and clean and the curriculum is engaging.

Finding the right daycare for you loved one is difficult, and I was skeptical of enrolling my little one, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of genuine care and attentiveness to my boy. The teachers are amazing and experienced, they always keep me updated on my sons day, and progress, and I love getting pictures of him throughout the day. As a "covid baby" my son spent his first 2 years home with just me and was never really around other children so you can imagine how concerned I was on how he would transition into this new environment. The school management told me it would take some time and before you know it he would be running into class and not even say goodbye to me, and 2 weeks is all it took before this was happening. It made me sad that he "didnt want me" anymore but melted my heart to see how happy he is at school. I am so happy to have enrolled my child and highly recommend Creative Kids Brewster to anyone looking for a quality center for their little one! The Director is amazing as well. She has great communication, and updates you on all things related to your child, which I love!
