Kindergarten Program

Creative Kids Club's full day Kindergarten program has been in place since 1996. It is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The teacher in the program has at least a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Private Academic Teaching Certificate issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Board of Private Academic Schools. The assistant teacher in the program has at least an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education and has an Assistant Teaching Certificate issued by the Board of Private Academic Schools.

Our class size is limited to 10 children. Many of our kindergarten students miss the entry cut-off date for public full day kindergarten and have successfully tested into first grade at public school for the next year.
