Trusted Licensed Care.jpg

There are many great options for your child's care.  Whether it is our Center or somewhere else it is important that you pick a provider that fits your families unique needs. Before you visit make sure to check that any Center or Provider is a Licensed Child Care Provider at www.211childcare.org or call 211.  

 

Creative Starts Learning Centers are Licensed Childcare Providers which ensures that we meet rigorous health and safety standards for both our centers and staff.  As a licensed provider our Centers are subject to periodic unscheduled health and safety inspections from State Licensing staff as well as the Local Health Department.  Each Center also receives an annual inspection from the local Fire Marshal.  

PHILOSOPHY

         At Creative Starts we strive to provide a healthy and safe environment that allows children to be creative, stimulated and curious. Our daily schedule allows children to use open ended materials that adapt to their individual needs and interests to provide opportunities that promote their development through social, cognitive, physical, and creative expression experiences. 
        We are a family owned and operated company which means that we do not answer to shareholders or investors and are only obliged by the children and families that we serve.  This allows us to maintain affordable tuition and at the same time provide an adaptable approach to your child's care.  
        Our professional and experienced staff is dedicated to serving the children and parents of our communities, we understand the challenges that working families face. Our teachers recognize that each child and family are unique and adapt to ensure the needs of each child are met through our daily routines and curriculum as they explore new areas of life. 
      

SAFETY

       Each employee of our centers undergoes a rigorous screening process that includes passing a background check administered by the FBI, DCF and DESPP. Our Teachers are trained in First Aid, certified in CPR and to administer medication. Additionally each teacher receives training as a Mandated Reporter from the DCF.  

       For security all of our Centers are monitored by closed circuit cameras and have a centrally monitored security and fire alarm system.  Entrance to our center is controlled by electronic locks and only our staff members have access to unlock the doors.  We do not distribute door lock codes to parents, at Creative Starts we strongly believe that to ensure children's safety all parents or visitors need to be let in by a staff member.  

       P
arents are able to receive real-time updates about their children's day including meals, naps, activities and communicate directly with the teacher through our phone app.
