Our Preschool

Creative Kids Childcare Centers are committed to providing young children nurturing learning environments. We offer preschool and child care for ages 6 weeks through 12 years old at five locations throughout Hudson Valley. Creative Kids Mahopac first opened its doors in September 2012 and was the fourth Creative Kids location.

Our schools are a welcoming place where every child is supported. Our teachers individualize our curriculum so each and every child can develop emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Our directors, teachers, and staff work together to create a warm and nurturing environment where children 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® helps us maintain a high-quality learning environment where every child has the opportunity to become a creative, confident thinker.
