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.

Spring is here…finally!! We’re so happy to be able to get outside again to our playground for some exercise. Luckily we’ve had our Cross-Fit program with Coach Dylan & Coach Marcus to keep us in shape.
Our 2nd Annual Children’s Art Show was a success albeit a bit snowy. The artwork was beautiful and the robots amazing. I hope you all had a nice time.
As it does every year, the time has flown by. And here we are in April already. What’s happening in April? Earth Day takes place this month and we’ll be doing some planting to take home. We’ll also be reading books on how all of us can help take care of our planet. And we’ll be welcoming a visit from The Nature of Things (April 23rd & 24th) with their menagerie of animals. Our caterpillars will be arriving soon and each classroom will be observing their amazing transformation. Then we set them free.
Our spring Parent/Teacher conferences will be starting next week with the 4’s class (followed by the 3’s and then the 2’s). Sign-up sheets have been posted outside each classroom. Please choose a time that works for you.
Camp registration is underway and filling up so please let me know if you’d like a spot. Camp runs from June 8th through July 24th (7 weeks) and you can choose 3 or 5 days a week to attend and as many weeks as you like. The price is discounted for 5 or more weeks. If you need a registration form, just let me know.
Our annual fundraiser is fast approaching (Friday, 4/24 at Fogarty’s in Bronxville 7:00pm). I’m so happy to see that a good number of parents are coming. It’s really a fun evening at a great place and I always look forward to it. Our fundraising committee is working very hard to make it a great night. So please come out and support the school. I guarantee you’ll have fun and you could win a great prize. Speaking of prizes, I want to thank all of you for your wonderful donations. We couldn’t do it without you.
School Pictures should be arriving soon. Once they arrive, the classroom teachers will distribute them. I can’t wait to see them.
Our spring session of Yoga with Budding Buddhas, Dance with Scarsdale Strings, Soccer with Happy Feet, and Drama with DramaBee are starting now. If you haven’t signed up but want to, please let me know. The DramaBee production of “Annie” right before the break was wonderful and heartwarming. They’ll now be working on “Mary Poppins” which I know will be also terrific.
