Erica Schmitt and her staff at Creative Nursery and Preschool (CNAP) go above and beyond. As a new mom with lots of worries, it was very important for me to find the perfect caregiver. My husband and I realized very quickly that a nanny was out of our price range so we began our search for a daycare. All the daycare facilities I looked into were not up to my standards. I wanted my daughter to receive care from educated caregivers who were not just there to babysit. I wanted her to learn and to be accessed. A daycare that provided healthy meals and would accommodate cloth diapers was important to me. Then I learned about CNAP. Staff members at CNAP participate in professional development each year, the students in the program are assessed three times a year, and they only provide wholesome and healthy meals. CNAP also accommodates children with dietary preferences or restrictions and works with those families who choose to use cloth diapers. I feel comfortable dropping my daughter off at CNAP every day because I know she is in good hands and I strongly believe in their program.

Worth the money! My toddler has been there since she was a baby, and she has been well cared for. The teachers really care about the kids. Plus, they do a lot of activities; she comes home singing new songs and saying things I haven't taught her. I highly recommend CNAP!

Nothing but fantastic things to say about this program and the owners. Their staff turnover is minimal and we've become very close with the teachers and staff.

My son and I are grateful to be a part of this closely-knit community of children and families.
We love Creative Nursery and Preschool, our son has been enrolled in the toddler room and loves going to school each day. The teachers are caring and nurturing, the school provides an enriched learning environment, and the nutrition our son receives in top-notch. I would and do recommend CNAP to anyone looking for childcare!
We have experienced exceptional infant care. The class sizes are small and everyone know each other. Very loving and professional. Cloth diaper friendly too!

If you are looking for a preschool in the South City area that will offer you peace of mind at an affordable price, you should look no further. We have been part of the CNAP family for almost a year now, and my son loves going to school everyday. The teachers are very invested in the kids on a personal level and I've never questioned the level of care that he receives. Erica, the director, is wonderful! She works hard and it shows. Her menu for the kids is amazing - homemade meals, mostly organic, all very healthy. My son used to be a pretty picky eater, and now he will try anything. He has made huge strides both academically and socially within our time at CNAP. The attention that he receives from his teachers, along with the curriculum that they offer, is top-notch. It is difficult to find this level of care in the city - especially for this price. I'm so thankful that we found this school!

We love CNAP! Our son attends preschool there and he has thrived in the care of the wonderful teachers there. One of the best features of CNAP is their nutrition program. Our son is a terrific eater now, largely in part to the whole foods and family-style dining at CNAP. The curriculum is fantastic and really meets the needs of the whole child. I can't say enough good things about this place!
