Additional Information:

Creative Kids Enrichment provides an effective and positive learning environment for children ages 6 weeks-12 years old. Our staff are highly trained in early childhood education and very passionate about the work they do at Creative Kids! We make sure we meet all educational and developmental needs of each and every child, and communicate this on a daily basis with each child's parent.

Our school cares for children ages 6 weeks-4 years old. We also have a before and after school program for children currently enrolled within the Lakeland School District, ages 5-12 years old. Our school-age program runs from 6:30 am-8:00 am and then again from 2:30 pm-7:00 pm. For your convenience, school bus transportation is provided by the Lakeland School District to and from Creative Kids.

We serve breakfast and lunch, as well as a morning snack and afternoon snack. We provide a state of the art security system in which each parent has a code when dropping off and picking up their child. We have two playgrounds; a smaller playground that caters to our infants and younger toddlers and a larger playground for our older toddlers, preschoolers, pre-kindergarten and our school-age students. Once a month on a Friday night from 7 pm - 11 pm, we offer "Parent's Night Out." This allows parents to drop off their child with our teachers and staff so they can enjoy a night out! We provide movies, games, play and snacks.

Creative Kids Enrichment is open year round, from 6:30 am - 7:00 pm, Monday-Friday, excluding 6 major holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are open during all inclement weather conditions unless there is a state of emergency (ordered by the Governor) and the roads are shut down. Creative Kids has a" text alert system" that allows administration to communicate directly with parents for any important information such as school closings due to weather, school-wide activity reminders, field trips, etc.

Creative Kids Enrichment has a camp that runs for 10 weeks during the last week of June to the last week of August. Any child, 5-12 years old can sign up for Creative Kids camp. Our camp has exciting trips to places such as Splashdown, Bounce, Chuck-E-Cheese, The Gravity Vault, Maritime Aquarium, Bronx Zoo and much more! We also provide in-house activities such as Zumba, Build-A-Bear, Hudson Valley Gym on Wheels, Canvas Painting and more!!

I am an employee

After working in 2-3 other facilities, Creative kids is by far the best ! They've helped me try to achieve goals set and genuinely care for their children! I couldn't thank them enough!!

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

This place is terrible. They manipulate information and cover up things that happen to the children here. My child reported horrible things that the director and operations manager covered up. They need to be shut down because they may have started out caring for kids but now they do not and will do anything for money.

I am the owner

I am the owner of the childcare center. I am very professional and have been in business for fifteen years. The review is completely inaccurate and all reviews should be verified before someone can post whatever they want online to hurt someone business that they worked so hard to achieve.
