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.
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.

My husband, Jovanny Suriel, & I cannot say enough good things about Creative Kids Beekman. Our daughter, Gia, has been enrolled since this summer when they opened back up. She was 7 months old at the time and had only been home with us since maternity leave was then followed up by COVID-19's quarantine.
As a first time mom (amidst a global pandemic!), I was very anxious to say the least. Ms. Nicole and Gia's baby room teacher, Ms. Angel, have been so kind and understanding. Pretty soon after Gia started, I was the only one tearful at drop off while Gia happily went in all smiles in the morning. The constant updates on KidReports are such an amazing part of the program. Gia has just done absolutely beautifully since starting at Creative Kids. Her social skills and development overall are incredible and we know it's contributed to all the great work the staff does in the baby room. Family and friends are always amazed by the pictures (thanks KidReports!) we can send them of Gia doing such cool developmental activities-not to mention the cool projects we've been able to post on our fridge!
Most recently, Gia learned baby sign language at Creative Kids and can communicate when she's "hungry", "wants more" and is "all done". It's been so helpful and again something I don't know if we would have fostered at home if Creative Kids did not teach her the foundations of being such a great communicator at this early age!
Their precautions during this uncertain time of the COVID-19 pandemic have also been reassuring. It's been a great relief to know our baby girl is in such good hands at Creative Kids Beekman. Ms. Nicole has been so responsive to any questions or concerns we had in person or on email which we have heard from other parents is not always the case at other centers.
It was a tough choice to send her back in July and everyday we are reassured we made the right decision. Thank you for all the great work you do, especially Ms. Angel, Ms. Alicia, Emma, Amanda, Gianna, Ms. Nicole, Ms. Erika & everyone else that takes such great care of our daughter!

My daughter has been attending Creative Kids Beekman since she was 10 weeks old- she is now in the PreK program. Creative Kids provides her with a safe place to learn, play and grow. She comes home excited to tell me all about her day, from hearing about time outside on the playground to how an ice cube melts and turns from a solid to a liquid, what the teachers accomplish and teach my daughter in a day still amazes me!
