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!

January 2019

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! And welcome back. We hope everyone had a nice holiday break. We’re looking forward to a wonderful new year. I’d like to thank everyone for coming out for our Holiday Concerts. As usual the children did a terrific job singing and our classroom parties were a lot of fun. Thank you so much also for your generous donations to our Mitten Tree…it was overflowing with such nice hats, gloves, and mittens. The Eastchester Community Action Program was very appreciative when I dropped them off. It’s a tradition that Creative Playtime has been doing for many years and thanks to your generosity, we’re still able to continue it.


Our enrichment programs will be starting the week of January 7 th and will run on the following schedule:

Mondays: Yoga with Budding Buddhas

Our annual fundraiser will be coming up in the spring. A number of moms have volunteered to help with the planning. Thank you. I will be in touch with you shortly about setting up a time to meet. It’s always a wonderful event and the money raised helps with our music program with Mr. Robert, Spanish with Miss Esther, as well as the purchase of needed classroom items. Thank you.

Registration for the 2019-2020 school year is ongoing. If you haven’t registered but would still like to or know of anyone who may be interested, please let me know as spots are filling up.

Now that winter is upon us, just a reminder that Creative Playtime follows the Eastchester Public Schools with regard to school closures/delays due to weather conditions. If Eastchester schools are closed, then we are closed. If Eastchester has a delayed opening, Creative Playtime will open at 10:00am. I am on their automated call list so as soon as I know I will notify everyone by email. Let me know if you have any questions at all.
