welcome to creative playtime

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!

Dear Parents,

Autumn is now upon us and we are getting into the full swing of school. The children are settling in and it’s so nice to hear their sweet little voices as they get busy with activities. Even our youngest 2’s are starting to feel comfortable and are entering the classroom with ease. We are off to a wonderful start.

We have so many things planned for our new school year and we look forward to sharing all the events and activities throughout the year with all of you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be part of your children’s lives. It truly is a wonderful job.

Our Fall Family Picnic is coming up this Saturday, 9/27/14. It will take place outside on the front lawn (weather permitting…if rain, it will be held in the school). It’s a great way to reconnect with retuning families and meet new ones. Sign-up sheets are posted outside of each classroom on the bulletin boards. Our music teacher, “Rob, the Guitar Guy” will be there as well as visits from Happy Feet Soccer and Budding Buddhas Yoga. We’ll also be doing some fun autumn arts & crafts. Hope you can come.

Our Book Fair will begin on Wednesday, 9/24/14 and will take place upstairs in the Social Hall. The hours are as follows:
Wed/Thurs/Fri:     8:45-9:30           11:00-12:30                2:30-3:15
Sat (Picnic)        12:00-2:00

Main Street Books provide a wide variety of wonderful books at great prices. It will run through Saturday, 9/27.
