We are all at home and news of the coronavirus COVID-19 is everywhere: the tv, newspapers, and conversations. We are all learning how to handle this situation off the cuff when it comes to our little ones. Many parents are wondering how to bring up the topic with their little ones, let alone explain it […]

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
Creative Learning Pre-School and Kindergarten, located in Linwood, NJ, has been caring for and educating toddlers to kindergartners since 1974. We are proudly accepting the second generation of little learners. Many former students, now parents are enrolling their children in our toddler, pre-school, pre-kindergarten, or kindergarten classes.
Our philosophy is simple. We believe that as growing individuals each child should have the opportunity to build their own passion for learning. Our classrooms are warm and nurturing places where children gain positive self-esteem as they investigate and discover the world around them.
Throughout the school year we enjoy seasonal celebrations and special events that are age appropriate for each group of learners. Weekly newsletters include all current and future happenings in your child’s class. Parents are encouraged to participate in several special events.
We invite you and your child to visit our school for a tour and to meet our teachers. Please call us (609) 927-4715 to arrange your tour.
Our facility is a licensed Child Care Center of the State of New Jersey.
ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS
Our Center is filled with enriching activities designed to stimulate and encourage receptive and expressive language. We are constantly on the move as we develop our small and large muscles. Our toddlers love messy play. The teachers provide many opportunities for finger painting, gluing, ripping paper, and using chalk and crayons. Joining our older friends for singing time is also a favorite of our littlest learners.
Throughout the year the children enjoy learning colors and shapes. We use music to dance, sing, and understand more about how we use language. The teachers recognize the curiosity of the children and use it to enhance their knowledge of nature and the way things work in their world.
Our three’s love to use their imagination! They dress up and pretend together now that their language has grown. Coloring, painting, sketching, and gluing are some of the skills we use to create beautiful artistic expressions. We also enter the world of letters and numbers. Sharing, caring, and being a friend are the social skills introduced during this busy year of growth.
Pre-Kindergarten is a readiness year. The children will develop cognitively, emotionally, and socially. They increase their use of language and understanding of concepts. Our teachers will introduce and reinforce decision making and problem solving, resourcefulness, and responsibility. We have both pre-reading and pre-math programs in place. Letter formation and use of scissors are practiced throughout the year. Basic Spanish and American sign language are presented as another way of communicating. We use play, music, exploration, and art to build these skills.
The Kindergarten classroom provides a safe, comfortable, and learning rich environment to foster positive productive attitudes toward school and formal education. We provide an environment that encourages and accepts the trials, falters, and successes of the child on his/her individual merits and at their own pace. The curriculum consists ofLanguage Arts, Mathematics, Reading, Emotional and Social Development, Self-Concept, Music, Arts, Community Helpers, Dramatization, Science, and Perceptual Development.
WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US
My first child just graduated Pre-K from Creative Learning and we are delighted with the education she has received. Each year there she has made amazing advances in her learning and socialization. She is more than ready for Kindergarten. Our second child just finished the Terrific Two’s and we can’t believe how much she loves school and how much she as learned in 1 year. I would recommend Creative Learning Preschool to any parent serious about their child’s education and future success in school.Jennifer, a parent
Both my brother and myself went there as children and my daughter has already gone there. I am about to send my son there. Its a great place to start your kids learning. My daughter gets all A’s and B’s now and I have to think that learning starts early. Would highly recommend the school.Jason, parent
