Creativity means having the power or quality to express yourself in your own way. Children are naturally creative.
Creative Child aims to help children to develop their potential in a creative and nurturing environment that promotes confidence and love for learning. Our unique curriculum is based on active learning and it fosters the emotional, physical, social and cognitive needs of children. Providing a stimulating and professional preschool experience, Creative Child prepares children aged 12 months to 4 years old for the school years.
Creative Child promotes active learning through many different activities where children attain direct and immediate experience while they are doing what they like to do best: playing. Our well-balanced program, dedicated teachers, outstanding facilities and adequate resources provide a nurturing environment, which allows children to use their creativity and discover the world.
