Serving St. Mary’s County since 1982

Creative Beginnings opened its doors in 1982 with the goal of providing high quality childcare to St. Mary’s County. We are licensed by the State of Maryland an accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education. Our school is a private preschool and child care center serving children from infancy through 5th grade.

Young children learn best through manipulation of materials and hands-on experiences. These activities are carefully planned and facilitated by knowledgeable teachers. This learning looks very much like play – but play with purpose and intent. Teachers organize and display materials so that children use them to figure things out, practice skills, and learn new concepts. Children are allowed enough time to explore those materials again and again. Repetition and success develops the confidence to take risks and try more complex and demanding activities.

The curriculum places a strong emphasis on the development of language, math, science, and social skills and incorporates the key elements that contribute to a child’s readiness for school and academic success. Through a variety of learning elements, children make self-directed and guided choices and experience the joys of childhood.

Our goal is to assure that your child receives the best care available. We want your child to become a confident and competent lifelong learner and to develop the social and cognitive skills necessary for school success. Most important is that all of our children have a rich and rewarding childhood full of play, learning and love.
