Our son has been attending Creative Stars for a little over 6 months and we couldn’t be happier with the care they provide! Jill and Jay are fantastic and truly put their heart and soul into caring for the kids. Our son has advanced significantly since starting at Creative Stars and comes home everyday with the best stories of what he did all day! We are excited for the Academy to open shortly and we know that Jill and Jay have created what will be the most sought after daycare in town!!

As first-time parents, we were worried when our son started falling behind on some of his milestones. The providers at Creative Stars Daycare worked very hard with him, and he is now meeting almost all of his milestones. They continued to believe in him and have high expectations for him. He has had significant improvement. We couldn't have achieved this without all of their hard work and effort. You will love this daycare. They will love and care for your child as if he/she is one of their own.

As parents there is nothing better than knowing your children are well-cared in a nurturing, Christian, and educational environment while you are at work. We are grateful for the care our two boys (ages 4 and infant) received at Creative Stars! Our oldest proudly learned to recite the Pledge of Allegiance there, as well as sing so many of his favorite songs--he still sings the table prayer "Thank You God" which he learned at Creative Stars & taught our entire family (cousins & grandparents). The love, compassion, education & caring that our boys received while attending Creative Stars was such a blessing

I couldn't believe how much my daughter learned within the first couple of weeks of attending Creative Stars! She was learning so much more than just letters and numbers, she was learning how to be respectful, kind, considerate, well mannered and responsible for her own actions! The love she received while in care was more than I could ever have hoped for. If you are looking for wonderful, nurturing and educational learning, you can find a home at Creative Stars!!!
