Welcome! Creative Playtime is a community program of Grace Lutheran Church. Children of all religious and ethnic backgrounds are welcome to our school. Creative Playtime provides half-day sessions for children ages 2 to 4 years old, as well as a Lunch Bunch hour and Extended-Day options.
We are a New York State Licensed facility in a residential neighborhood, with cheerful, large, air-conditioned classrooms and a fenced, safe outdoor playground. Our curriculum is developmental and age-appropriate, promoting growth, social skills, language and self-esteem, and of course, providing lots of fun and creativity in the process! Our nurturing and caring staff is professional and qualified, and participate in on-going training in the field of early education.
Browse our website for more information, or better yet, schedule an appointment for a tour of our school! We are looking forward to meeting you and your children!
Registration will be open until all spots are filled

What a fun Halloween! The parades were wonderful and the children looked great in their costumes ( parents and Pastor Stephanie too). It was a fun day. Although the weather doesn’t show it, it’s hard to believe it’s November already.
We have a lot going on this month. Parent/Teacher conferences are underway. If you haven’t yet signed up, sign-up forms are posted outside the classrooms and you can always speak with your child’s teacher about setting up a time.
Registration for current families will be taking place this year on Saturday November 21st beginning at 9:00am. It will be for all 3 classrooms; 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s and will take place upstairs in the Social Hall. I’ve emailed parents from the 2’s & 3’s to find out what their plans/preferences are for next year. Through these responses I can give you a better sense of the spots that people are looking for. I’d like to give you as much information as I can before registration day so I will make sure to update everyone as information becomes available. Registration opens up to new families beginning on Monday November 30th.
Our Friendship Feasts will be taking place on Monday & Tuesday Nov. 23rd and 24th. These will be just for the children (parents are invited in December to attend our Holiday Concerts and classroom parties). Each class prepares something for the feast and we all eat together; 2’s, 3’s and 4’s as we celebrate Thanksgiving and all that we’re thankful for. We always enjoy this special day.
Winter will soon be upon us so I wanted to send out a reminder regarding school closures. Here at Creative Playtime we follow the Eastchester School District. If Eastchester schools are closed, then we are closed. If Eastchester schools have a delayed opening, then we will open at 10:00am. Look for information regarding Eastchester school closings on Channel 12. You will also receive an email from me in the early morning (or night before if there is advanced notice…I am on their automated call list) with information about any closures/delayed openings. If, while at school, Eastchester schools close early or we determine that it is becoming very unsafe outside, we will notify you by phone of any early closures.
Information and registration forms will be going out this month for all of our Enrichment Programs; Yoga, Dance, Violin, Soccer, Drama, and Literacy for the winter session. They will follow the same schedule with yoga on Mondays, dance and violin on Tuesdays, soccer on Wednesdays (3’s) and Thursdays (4’s), drama on Fridays, and literacy on Tuesday afternoons. All winter session enrichment programs for 3’s & 4’s will begin after the holiday break in January. Our current Dance, Violin, and Drama classes will be inviting families to attend their final classes for the fall session. The drama club will be performing the musical “Peter Pan.”
Creative Playtime will be having an Open House on Saturday December 5th from 9am- 12pm. If you know of anyone looking for a preschool they are welcome to attend. And if that day doesn’t work they can certainly come take a tour at a time that is convenient for them.
We hope everyone has a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving! p>
