For over 50 years, Creative Early Learning Center Childcare & Preschool has helped children grow and develop through a world of discovery. We respect each child's individuality and strive to foster an atmosphere of caring and trust. Our childcare center is family owned and operated. All who attend our programs are made to feel welcome, at home, and part of our family.
Our teachers have degrees in early childhood education, and extensive experience working with children and families. We hire only the best and it shows in everything we do! Our preschool programs provide kindergarten readiness, giving your child an educational advantage. What really sets us apart, is what we like to call the Creative Difference. Our comprehensive educational programs extend beyond our doors and into your home. You will find that the Creative Difference we offer, creates in your child a strong curiosity and enthusiasm to learn about the world around them.
Our childcare and preschool programs are found at three convenient locations: Garfield Heights, Twinsburg and Medina.
THE CREATIVE LEGACY
In 1962, our founder, Jean Pedone, opened the doors of a co-op preschool program in a church in Garfield Heights, Ohio. She was a pioneer and avid storyteller, whose passion was working with and educating children. Jean started this preschool program with just a few students. Who could have imagined this program would blossom into three state-of-the-art Creative Early Learning Centers run by the same caring and loving family.
Jean was a risk-taker. When she realized there were no quality preschool programs in the community, she set to work to make a difference and started a program of her own. Jean made sure her children had exposure to the arts, including drama, music, dance, and storytelling. These crucial components to teaching children have carried through until today and can be found in throughout Creative's comprehensive curriculum.
As her program grew, so did the demand for day care for all ages of children. Jean listened; and with the help her daughter, Debbie, they opened one of the first child development centers in Northeast Ohio and the Creative Early Learning Center was established.
