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!

February

News


Dear Parents,

February is here and the countdown begins till spring. I’m pretty sure the groundhog did not see his shadow so hopefully we’ll have a short wait. We’re looking forward to seeing our playground again although the children have been keeping busy…and fit with our Cross-Fit-For- Kids and Gym-on-Wheels gymnastic programs.

Our enrichment programs are off to a good start for the winter session (yoga, dance, violin, soccer, and drama). The DramaBees will be performing “Seussical the Musical” in April. The “Leap into Literacy” program for the 4’s with Stefanie Borg is immensely popular so much so that we’ve added a second class on Thursdays.

Spring is near and with that comes our annual Fundraiser. A number of moms were nice enough to volunteer to plan our fundraiser and I met with them recently. They’re in the process of setting the date (most likely in April on a Friday night at Fogarty’s in Bronxville) and have come up with some wonderful ideas. We don’t do a lot of fundraising here at Creative Playtime so this event is something that we really count on. We keep it affordable (Fogarty’s is the best) and every year it turns out to be a great night and a lot of fun. The money we raise helps with our Music, Cross-Fit, and Gym-on-Wheels gymnastic programs and also with the purchasing of new equipment and furniture. So please come out and support the school and the moms who are working so hard putting it all together. We really appreciate it and more than likely you’ll win a great prize. More details and information coming soon.

Luckily we haven’t had any snow days as of yet. Just a reminder that we follow Eastchester schools so if they’re closed, then we are too. If they have a delayed opening, then we open at 10:00am. I’m on their automated call list so once I know of a closure or delayed opening, you will receive an email from me.

Upcoming Events:

Valentine’s Day Parties: Feb. 10th & 11th- please check the classroom bulletin boards for information regarding individual classroom parties.

Children’s Art Show-Wine & Cheese for Parents: Friday March 4th 7:00pm upstairs in Social Hall. Come enjoy some hors d’oeuvres and wine while you tour the gallery of wonderful art.

Special Persons Week: week of March of 14th- check with your child’s teacher for details.

Mid Winter Break takes place the week of February 15th. **Creative Playtime will have a half day on Friday Feb. 12th. School will let out at 11:30 however DramaBees will still have class till 12:15pm.

Camp Information: We’re in the process of putting together our camp information. Camp will run from Monday June 6th through Friday July July 22nd; 9:00am-12:00pm. Each week has a different theme (changing some from last year) and includes visits from Mad Science, The Nature of Things, Juggles the Magician, Happy Feet Soccer, Gym-on-Wheels, etc. You may sign up for as many weeks as you like (the more weeks you do, the less it is per week) either 3 or 5 days. Information and registration forms will be sent home shortly.

Everyone have a fun and relaxing mid winter break.

Warm Wishes,

Gigi Aronoff
