play is fundamental

Creek’s program is based on the philosophy that play is the fundamental learning experience.  We view the preschool years as a critical time in the development of social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth. 

Our goal is to provide a wide variety of play experiences that foster social, problem-solving, and self-help skills while encouraging a positive self-concept.

guidance to grow

Guidance at Creek means helping children learn self-control and appropriate self-expression. Discipline is handled in a way that respects the dignity of the child and fosters self-concept. Children learn to treat others with respect and develop a sense of community.


We work to develop an awareness of and respect for cultural diversity by representing the art, literature, music and food of different cultures in our activities. Equipment and materials are selected with careful consideration to reflect cultural diversity and individual differences.

Creek Day School has no religious affiliation, and religious concepts are not taught in our program. Families in our program have differing religious beliefs. Holidays and celebrations of various cultures are reflected in the program. We welcome parents to share with us the ways their families celebrate special events throughout the year.
