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.

Spring is here! We’re very happy that now we can finally use our playground again. Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday that it was September and our school year was just beginning.
What’s happening in April? Earth Day takes place this month so we’ll be reading books on how all of us can take care of our planet. We’ll also be doing some planting along with some other Earth Day activities.
Our Parent/Teacher conferences have begun. Please remember to check the bulletin boards outside of the classrooms to sign-up for conferences.
Camp registration is underway for 3’s, 4’s, & 5’s (and those children eligible to enter the 3’s in September). Camp runs from June 9th-July 25th for a total of 7 weeks from 9:00am-12:00pm. The more weeks you sign-up for, the less it is per week and the weeks do not have to be consecutive. Each week is a different theme and we incorporate visits from Sea Wonders, The Nature of Things, Mad Science, Juggles the Juggler, and Happy Feet Soccer. We’ll also be offering a weekly class with Happy Feet Soccer on Wednesdays from 12:00-12:45pm (more info to follow). Camp registration forms were placed in each mailbox however if you need one or have any questions, please let me know.
Our annual Fundraiser is coming up soon: Friday May 16th 2014. It will be held at Fogarty’s in Bronxville. Our Fundraising Committee has been working very hard putting everything together. Thank you to all of you who’ve submitted donations. It’s always a fun night with wonderful raffles and live/silent auction items. And we have the most entertaining MC around; Lou Osso. So please come out, have some fun and support the school. Chances are you’ll go home with some terrific prizes.
Other Upcoming Events:
Spring Break: 4/14-4/21 Enjoy the break.
Mother’s Day Teas: upstairs in the Social Hall. Food lovingly baked by the children in the 2’s, 3’s, & 4’s- Thursday May 8th & Friday May 9th.
