"Our son has improved in his reading abilities and enjoys staying at Creative Minds for the all day Kindergarten with smaller class sizes than public schools!" -- Jen M.

Portland Kindergarten"Creative Minds gives more individual attention than other schools we have tried and they focus on creating a relationship with my son and our family. We also love their healthy menu and smaller class sizes."-- E.B.

"I was investigating Kindergarten choices for my daughter and I found that a public school near my house was already at 29 students per Kindergarten teacher! Then I looked into private schools and most were Religious based. Finally, I found Creative Minds which is smaller in size and non denominational!" -- Danner Family

Kindergarten Grad at CMLC"I felt compelled to write a letter about my son's enrollment in the private kindergarten at Creative Minds Learning Center. I am extremely impressed with what he has learned. If anyone is on the fence about enrolling for this - I urge you to consider the great start you will be giving your child. The teacher and the staff have done an exceptional job in all facets of learning.& My son is more than prepared for the first grade. Thank you,
Melissa -- Proud Parent!"
