Charles and Linda Hester founded Creative Schools, Inc. in 1985. At the time Linda, who has a BS in Education, had been teaching in both public and private schools for 18 years. Charles, whose BS is in Business, was a commercial banker with experience as a licensed general contractor. Linda and Charles combined their talents in education and business to establish an early childhood program with the goal of providing excellence in early childhood education while using the best possible business practices.
The Hesters were committed to creating schools for young children that offer a safe, clean, age appropriate environment that would give children the experiences that assure their needs were met emotionally, physically, and socially. Two factors provided motivation. The Hesters remembered vividly how difficult it was to find acceptable care for their boys when they were preschoolers and Linda’s work with children in the classroom confirmed the fact that those who had good quality care in the early years had a definite advantage, both educationally and socially, over those who had not been in a loving and stimulating environment.
To provide the best possible facilities the Hesters take very seriously every aspect of the business from the design of the buildings and playground to the selection and training of staff. Through the years they have stayed up to date on child care trends and early childhood research by being involved in professional organizations such as the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the North Carolina Day Care Association (NCCD), the North Carolina Licensed Child Care Association (NCLCCA), and the National Child Care Association (NCCA). In addition they have worked with the state legislature and with the related state agencies that make and enforce the laws that govern childcare throughout the state. Together they strongly commit themselves along with community leaders and their staff to provide the best possible care for the children that are placed in their trust.

We provide hands on learning experiences through math, science, art and literacy activities. Young children need to have lots of time to play and explore their environment. Through a balance of self-directed and teacher-directed activities, we strive to enrich a child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. In addition to being well qualified and experienced in early childhood education, we believe that a teacher should be trained and experienced in classroom management, positive reinforcement techniques, and have excellent parent/teacher communication skills. Quality early childhood and school-age programs value and actively promote a partnership with children’s families. Parents are encouraged to visit often and participate in their child’s classroom daily activities.
