General School Mission

"For as many years as I have been at The Creative Learning Center I have seen children flourish and grow developmentally and physically. I was trained to know that this process has always been individual and with time. I have sat with many parents in my office or at their homes. I have explained the different intelligences and the milestones that they should be looking for at each stage of their child's young life.
