About Creative Kids Beekman

Creative Kids Childcare Centers has been committed to providing children safe and nurturing learning environments since we opened in January 2001. Creative Kids Beekman first opened its doors in March 2007 and was our third Creative Kids location.

Our directors, teachers, and staff have created a welcoming environment that actively encourages young children to develop confidence and a positive self-image. Your child will participate in a wide variety of experiences where they’ll learn about themselves and the world around them.

Our Programs

Our Curriculum

Creative Kids teaches from The Creative Curriculum®, which leverages research and best practices so that we can take the needs of every type of learner into account. The Creative Curriculum® is grounded in 38 research-based objectives, which helps us maintain a high-quality learning environment where every child has the opportunity to become a creative, confident thinker. These objectives are based on school readiness standards and research has shown them to be predictors of future academic success.

Before & After School

I began working in the Early Childhood field in 2007 and have continued to learn and grow here at Creative Kids. I have worn many different hats during my career. I worked as a Teaching Assistant in both the Infant and Preschool classrooms, I spent 3 years as Lead Toddler Teacher, and spent time as an Assistant Director at our Mahopac location. I have blossomed and found my true self as the Director at our Beekman location. I have been the Director at Creative Kids Beekman since August of 2013 and it has been the most rewarding part of my career. I spend each day working closely with families, children, and staff to ensure that our center is providing exceptional care for all ages. I ensure that children are learning while enjoying their fun-filled days and that staff are given the proper resources and support to be their best selves. What more could you ask for?

I live in LaGrange with my husband, daughter, and two dogs. I enjoy being outdoors, whether it be at the beach, snowmobiling, hiking, or camping. In my spare time, I can almost always be found curled up with a good book, traveling to whatever destination the author takes me.

Assistant Director

I have been part of the Creative Kids team since 2005 and spent my earliest years working in the Infant Programs at our Brewster location. Working as a Lead Infant Teacher made me aware of how much I love being a part of each child’s milestones. Watching a baby’s first steps or hearing their first words and then celebrating those exciting moments with their families was the best part of my day. I took on the role of Assistant Director at our Beekman location in 2017 and this position has allowed me to take part in milestones in every classroom. Celebrating these milestones with an excited mom and dad is still my favorite part of my day.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my nephews, and my niece. I enjoy playing soccer, softball, and living a well-balanced, active lifestyle.

We feel so lucky to be a part of the Creative Kids Beekman family. Despite being in the middle of a pandemic, the school provides our kids with a place where they can learn, grow and have fun. They love everything about their day and the people they get to be with. We are so grateful for this school and its teachers- thank you for all you do!

My granddaughter has been attending Creative Kids for the last 5 years, and soon my youngest grand daughter will start at the center. From the very beginning I loved seeing all the love and care in each classroom. This year I have not been able to visit for holidays and special events due to COVID-19 safety policies, but my daughter shows me the daily photos and my granddaughter tells me all about the fun she has at school. I appreciate the extra precautions put in place to keep our little ones safe, while allowing them to stay in school. Our family is so thankful for Creative Kids Beekman!

My son began attending Creative Kids when he was around 1.5 years old, almost a year ago. This was the first daycare he's ever attended and I could not be any happier with the center and staff. As a first time mom to a child who has food allergies, I was very nervous with sending my son to school. The staff are truly amazing, the pictures and updates I receive during the day reinforce that Creative Kids is the absolute best school I could have chosen for my son. We couldn't be happier!
