Eager to achieve socially and academically while expanding their knowledge of the world, 5- to 11-year-olds seek new challenges, close friendships, and increasing responsibilities. Our goal is to provide a safe environment where each child is fully supervised inside and outside.
We strive to provide a loving and relaxed environment where the child’s physical and emotional needs are met. We will help the child learn to participate and function well in a group. We will provide an opportunity to exert independence and responsibility through self-direction and individual activities. Our program balances time to learn with time to play with friends, and finishing homework with sports and other physical activities.
School Year * Before and After School Care
Looking out at the CAP playground, one is reminded of an old fashioned neighborhood. Children of all ages are playing together. Some are playing pick-up games of soccer or basketball. There is a group in the back corner sweeping the ground with leaves and polishing acorns to improve their “fort.” Two children are swinging. Some are playing 4-square. The black top area is full of pogo sticks, stilts, and children jumping rope and singing. Girls and boys are sitting on the concrete benches playing chess and checkers. One or two children are just watching and unwinding. No one is home alone. No one is watching TV. When we go inside, the children can choose from among any of the following activities: computer games, arts and crafts, manipulatives and jigsaw puzzles, board games, building materials and more. CAP is absolutely the best place for your child to spend his after school time.
Back up care for school holidays and school closings
What does a working parent do when schools are closed? Creative Beginnings is there for you. Whenever school is out, our program is there to encourage a child’s drive to learn through the new challenges and opportunities that celebrate their expanding world. Fair day, in-service, Christmas break, spring break and most of the other numerous public and private school vacations are day care days at Creative Beginnings. Because we follow Patuxent River weather emergency closings, we are rarely closed for bad weather. We are open when there is late entry and early dismissal. CAP is a stable environment each and every day for your child.
