High-Quality Child Care

A child’s environment and social experience in their first three years of life is critical to their brain development and can have a decisive, long-lasting impact on their well-being and ability to learn. For many parents, this is enough to make finding high-quality child care a top priority. Creative Beginnings responds to the needs and concerns of parents with children of all abilities.

Creative Beginnings offers inclusive programs for typical learners as well as children with special needs. Our full day, twelve month services provide quality early education and care in developmentally appropriate learning environments that have small teacher to child ratios and highly qualified staff. Each day, children learn through a wide variety of activities that include rhythm, music, art, literature, physical education, and creative movement. We are also a pro-social program, encouraging development through interactions and activities with peers. Childcare provides for the total child by addressing individual needs of social, emotional, physical, and mental development for a child 6 weeks – 5 years of age.


Make the First Five Count®

Easter Seals created the Make the First Five Count program to raise awareness for kids at risk for developmental delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disabilities. On Make The First Five Count, you can find resources like the Ages and Stages Questionnaires®, a free, online screening tool for parents to track their child’s developmental milestones.
