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!

October 2017

Dear Parents,

October has arrived and although it still feels like summer, I’m sure some cooler temperatures are on their way. The children are doing wonderfully and are settling into their classroom routines. It’s so nice to see their happy, smiling faces each day.

It was so nice to see everyone at our Fall Family Picnic & Book Fair. Thanks so much for coming. It was a beautiful day and the pony and animals were a big hit. I’ll be sure to book them for next year.

October is looking to be a busy month. It is “Fire Safety Month” and we’re looking forward to our annual visit from the Eastchester Fire Department. Their visits are scheduled for Monday, Oct. 16 th & Tuesday, Oct. 17 th and will be here for both the AM and PM classes. We’re also expecting our annual visit from Joanne from Main Street Pediatric Dental located in Tuckahoe. Joanne teaches the children how to brush their teeth and sends home with each child a special bag containing all the things they’ll need to take great care of their teeth. Joanne will be coming to Creative Playtime on Thursday, Oct. 12 th and Monday, Oct. 23 rd

A fun event that we always look forward to is coming up this month; it’s our annual Halloween Parade. It takes place on Oct. 31 st and I block off Alida St. from Grand Blvd to Lee Ave. We all parade together down the street and then head over to Pastor Stephanie’s front yard for some healthy treats and refreshments. For the AM children, the parade will take place at 9:15am and for the PM children it will begin at 12:30. Please have your children arrive in their costumes (please no scary ones) and once the parade is over, you can change them into their regular clothes. Children who don’t attend school on Tuesdays are still welcome to take part in the parade. Just simply meet us outside on the grass at 9:15 (morning children) and at 12:30 (afternoon children).
