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!
Registration will be open until all spots are filled

What a fun Halloween! The parade was wonderful and all the children looked so great in their costumes (and some parents too). It was a really fun day. It’s hard to believe it’s November already.
We have a lot going on in November. Parent/Teacher conferences have been taking place. If you haven’t yet signed up but want to set up a conference time, please speak with your child’s teacher.
Our Friendship Feasts will be taking place on November 24th & 25th. These will be just for the children (parents are invited in December to our Holiday Concerts and parties). Each class prepares something for the feast and we all eat together; 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s and we celebrate Thanksgiving and all that we’re thankful for. We always enjoy this special day
Winter will soon be upon us so I wanted to send out a reminder regarding school closures. Here at Creative Playtime we follow the Eastchester School District. If Eastchester schools are closed, then we are closed. If Eastchester schools have a delayed opening, then we will open at 10:00am. Look for information regarding Eastchester school closings on Channel 12. You will also receive an email from me in the early morning (or night before if there is advanced notice) with information about any closures/delayed openings. If, while at school, Eastchester schools close early or we determine that it is becoming very unsafe outside, we will notify you by phone of any early closures. Creative Playtime will also close should power be lost.
Information and registration forms will soon be going out regarding our Enrichment Programs for the winter session. We’re looking to follow the same schedule with Yoga on Mondays, Dance on Tuesdays, Soccer on Wednesdays & Thursdays, and Violin on Fridays. We’re also looking to add an additional program on Fridays; an educational theatre program which provides “a supportive and fun environment where kids can be creative and expressive; where they’ll also improve their communication and social skills while building self confidence.” Each class is developmentally appropriate, focusing on singing, dancing, and acting and culminating in a live performance in front of family and friends and led by industry professionals. The class will run on Fridays from 11:30-12:15pm upstairs in the Social Hall (forms to go out shortly).
All winter session enrichment programs will begin after the holiday break in January and are open to all children in the 3’s & 4’s.
We hope everyone has a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving.
