About Creative Kids Preschool in Mahopac

Creative Kids Childcare Centers are committed to providing young children nurturing learning environments. We offer preschool and child care for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years old. Creative Kids Mahopac first opened its doors in September 2012.

School Director

I am thrilled to join the Cadence family, with over 20 years in early childhood education. As a passionate leader in this field, I find joy in nurturing both children and staff, witnessing their growth into remarkable individuals. I thrive on spreading knowledge, fostering encouragement, and embracing challenges. Beyond education, I cherish music and treasure moments with my son and husband.

Assistant Director

I started working in this field in August of 2022. I first started as a teachers assistant in our young preschool classroom. When my lead teacher left I took on the role as Lead teacher for young preschool. After a few months I was asked to be a closer for the building and eventually the LTP. When my assistant director left their position I was then asked about interest in becoming an AD. I enjoy being able to help young minds grow and help kids come into their own selves. Watching a child go from crawling to being able to read and write is so rewarding and it’s amazing to be a part of that!

In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, cooking, and watching anime as well as playing tennis and writing music!

We have been part of the Creative Kids family for 3 years. Our kids love going to school every day and are welcomed with hugs and smiles. Directors, Jen and Amber have done a wonderful job of creating consistency for students especially during these difficult couple years. They handled Covid seamlessly while keeping their staff and students safe. They also continue to create fun activities and celebrations for the kids. The families look for forward to activities such as pumpkin patches in the fall , leprechaun trap projects and gardening parties as well as silly themed dress up days and ice cream parties . The directors send communication home daily along with weekly newsletters and monthly calendars siting upcoming events. Classrooms have thematic units in which students incorporate various connected read alouds as well as address various learning styles from art, music, tactile, kinesthetic etc. I pulled my kids out of another sought after daycare in the area because I just wasn’t having the same experience that everyone was raving about online. Staff was cold, systems were antiquated and my kids were constantly sick. Switching to Creative Kids was overall a great decision. I feel I can express my needs to the directors and have open lines of communication. Anytime I have ever had an issue it has been resolved immediately with professionalism and discretion. My children are well prepared for kindergarten, knowing all their letters and sounds as well as many sight words . I feel confident every day knowing that my kids are in being well cared for and making friends along the way .

With the pandemic and return to office looming, we were on the lookout for a warm and enriching environment where our 3 year old could finally get some human interaction outside our family and start honing her creativity. I cannot even begin to explain how much we lucked out with Creative Kids. They've taken a girl with some anxiety about being away from home and transformed her into a confident, happy, and fulfilled kiddo that can't wait to go to school and learn. The programming is fantastic, the experiences are varied and catering to both emotional IQ and normal IQ, and the staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. It has become so much her second home that at the end of the day there always comes a play session outside with her friends. I'm legitimately anxious about the day where she'll be too big to attend, but until then gonna soak up every good bit we can.
