About Creative Kids

Creative Kids Childcare Centers is committed to providing children from 6 weeks to 12 years old safe and nurturing learning environments. We offer preschool and child care programs at five schools throughout Hudson Valley and our first center opened its doors in January 2001. Creative Kids Yorktown Heights was our second location and opened in August 2006.

Our directors, teachers, and staff are dedicated early childhood professionals who work together to create an early learning environment where every child feels at home. Our curriculum is flexible and individualized, which allows us to respond to the needs of each child as they develop emotional, physical, and intellectual skills.

My daughter has been going to creative kids for the last 2 years and I can’t thank enough the staff for being so amazing and compassionate. My daughter loves spending time there and is always looking forward to the next day. Thank you for everything you all do for my child.

My children have been going here for little over 5 years, and we love the caring, loving and educational environment that Creative Kids offers. The Director and Staff are always attentive to my children’s needs, from the toddler/preschool programs up to the after school care, we know our kids are in great hands.
