Creative Care Childrens Center has as its goal to provide the Northwest Suburbs with excellence in education and child care. Our enrollment is based on the acceptance of all children with the understanding that full enjoyment of the world is based on accepting, appreciating and learning from individual differences.
Our program is based on the belief that in order to educate a child, you must assist the child in developing in all areas: ACADEMIC, EMOTIONAL, and SOCIAL. In order to support this developmental growth, we employ a high level of communication with parents so that the child feels the partnership that exists between his parents and his educators.
The purpose and goals of Creative Care Childrens Center include:
Giving the child respect for himself and others
Aiding each child in achieving a sense of independence
Providing successful experiences which develop positive attitudes towards learning
Helping children develop and strengthen positive ways to inter-relate with peers
Providing learning materials so each child can progress at her own pace
Widening each childs understanding of, and love for, the world around him

Montessori education begins with a profound respect for children as individuals. It sees each child as a unique being with his or her own strengths and weaknesses, interests, passions, desires, personality, and purpose. Through an individualized educational experience, children develop at their own pace, moving ahead when they have demonstrated mastery of concepts and information. The three-year spiraling curriculum integrates areas of study and introduces skills repeatedlyreasing levels of complexity and abstraction as students master skills and internalize content. The Montessori classroom strives to foster the individual child while at the same time placing great emphasis on community, collaboration, peacefulness, and helping children to see their distinctive role in the world around them. Along with providing children with an unmatched academic experience, the Montessori classroom focuses on social and emotional growth through a curriculum which focuses on developing character and a strong sense of independence, kindness, individual purpose, and positive self-esteem.
Children who have had the benefit of a Montessori education are leaders; they are confident, inquisitive, creative, responsible, and motivated with a unique internal sense of purpose. Maria Montessori envisioned a learning environment which was an “education for life”, one which addresses the needs of the complete child ~ academic, emotional, and social ~ and which assists each child in fulfilling his or her own individual human potential.
