Our child has been attending Creative Minds for 2 years and has had a great experience. We appreciate that they use an app to provide a full report of what the kids do throughout the day, what they ate, how long they napped, etc. The facility is clean, and they do a great job of rotating through different toys and activities to keep the kids engaged. I like that they balance free play time with structured, learning-focused activities and art. Our child looks forward to going to “school” each day.
This place has gone above and beyond for making sure not only our son is comfortable every day but us as well. We get a personalized update everyday with pictures, notes and he’s learning Japanese! Every single person in there knows his name and all the things he likes/doesn’t, including the director! Everyday we walk in everyone is smiling and happy, the place is super clean (way more than we’ve seen touring any others). They do art projects daily, they work on learning number, letters and dance/yoga. He LOVES going to “school”! We toured almost every daycare within a 10 mile radius and this one came out far above the rest.
Our daughter first went to Creative Minds Sellwood as a four month old. As a first-time mom, I was nervous to send my very young infant to daycare. The wonderful teachers put my mind at ease as every time I would drop her off or pick her up she was being wellcared for: being held, swaddled in her cozy bed, or playing with other infants and teachers. Now at a year old, our daughter has learned so much from her baby peers and teachers. Creative Minds is a health conscious, play-centered learning environment. As a teacher myself, I highly recommend this top notch daycare.
My family is so happy to have found CMLC. Our daughters love coming to school and learning new things, which is creating a strong foundation for enthusiasm for their education. The teachers seem to appreciate my children’s individuality and promote creativity. They dance, sing, cook, make art, learn letters, and tell fantastic stories! I am so grateful to feel confident that I have a safe and loving space for my children. I never hesitate when I drop them off in the morning and they are always playing happily when I pick them up in the evening.
