Here at Creative Times Academy we are very proud of our 30 year history of taking excellent care of children and providing parents a sense of confidence that their children are safe, learning and eating well. But don't just take it from us. Please read some of the parent tesimonals that we have recently recieved.

I’m sitting here trying to decide how to write this in a way that makes it clear just how much we love Creative Times Academy and why without seeming so over the top that people will think it must be made up.
We toured 3 day care centers when I was about 4 months pregnant and picking Creative Times Academy ended up being an easy decision though all had positive aspects. Their employees were the most friendly/engaging and while they were professional, they were also kind and warm in a way that made it obvious they genuinely enjoyed their work. They were able to answer all of my questions in a manner that was comforting as a soon-to-be new mom looking at sending her first baby to daycare. Jameson started attending CTA when he was 10 weeks old. I did NOT expect to be the mom who cried dropping him off that first day but I did. They were so great about sending me pictures and updates on how he was doing and I’ve never once worried about him or the care he receives there since!
Jameson is now a few months past two years old and so much fun. When playing with him at home he comes up with new words and understanding of concepts we definitely didn’t teach him so I know that’s all thanks to CTA and their emphasis on (age appropriate and fun) learning. As with any toddler, he has days where the transition from home to daycare can be rough. I know it has nothing to do with how he actually feels about his time at CTA as he cheers up quickly after we leave which is often demonstrated to us with cute photos or videos of him having fun. I absolutely love these random little gifts for my mommy heart that pop up on my phone as I’m working.
This is getting long and I could go on. I’ll just finish with one last example that demonstrates just how appreciative we are for the care Jameson receives, the trust we have in CTA and all the staff. As a family it’s important to us to eventually buy a different home with a larger yard but we’ve made the decision to not even consider moving until Jameson is starting kindergarten, as there is a good chance we'll end up purchasing far enough away to make it difficult to continue attending Creative Times Academy.

We have loved the care that our daughter has received while being at Creative Times Academy. It is so fun to go pick her up each day and hear all the new words and information she has been taught! The staff that has worked with our daughter has been so great to work with. They are always so attentive and caring towards her.
Alongside how great their staff is, the director and owner are equally as great! If we ever have a concern, which is often as first time parents, we always feel comfortable reaching out to the director and owner of Creative Times to address any needs or concerns. As full-time working parents, we want our daughter to receive as great of care as she would with us and Creative Times does just that.
Seriously! It's probably way too long; I just couldn't help myself! :)
Choosing a daycare for my first child was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Choosing a daycare for my second child was one of the easiest because Creative Times is simply the best. THE BEST.
I brought my first daughter to Creative Times when she was 2 years old, after removing her from a small, home-based daycare that I was no longer comfortable with. I initially had reservations about bringing her to a center with larger classes than we were used to, but after a few days my fears were gone. She loved her teachers, and I could tell she was getting all the attention she needed. What really impressed me was how ready she was for school. When she was assessed for kindergarten, she knew everything she needed to know academically and socially, and I have the Creative Times teachers to thank for that!
My second daughter started attending Creative Times when she was 2 months old. I hadn’t had much experience with the baby room, but quickly found out how awesome the teachers were. My daughter’s feeding habits were tricky. For 10 months, she absolutely would NOT take a bottle, no matter how hard we all tried, so I came to the daycare to nurse her during my lunch hour (which was nap time for the babies). It always amazed me to watch how the teachers spent that time thoroughly cleaning toys and preparing art projects, all while consoling and holding babies who had woken up or just needed some extra attention. There was not a down minute ever, and somehow they all still had smiles on their faces!
My second daughter is now 3, and she loves her “school.” My oldest daughter is in second grade but still looks forward to spending her summer at Creative Times. At one point, I switched both girls to a different daycare (for personal transportation reasons only), and within two weeks I had called Creative Times to see if we could come back. The girls were unhappy, and every morning when I dropped them off, we all three cried. The level of care they received there was not at all comparable to Creative Times. Today, I go out of my way to get them to Creative Times, but it’s so incredibly worth it. Happy, safe children = happy mom who gets to work without worrying about her kids!
I love how the teachers answer the phone “It’s a great day at Creative Times!” because they truly do try to make every day wonderful for the kids. And one more thing, at the request of my children — “Creative Times has the BEST chili ever!”
