Within minutes of arriving you'll understand why children enjoy learning at Crème.
Welcome To The World Of Crème
I'm excited for you!
Simply because I've watched thousands of families enter the world of Crème. I've seen the look on their faces as they walked through our schools. I've personally sat with many of them discussing their children, their goals, and how we can help with their growth.
...but most of all, because I've been touched by the letters, and the calls, and the emails that we receive at Crème nearly every week from those same parents as they watch the lives of their children unfold right in front of them.
Please don't take my word for it, on this page you'll see what the media is saying about Crème, and with a quick jump to our Share-A-Story section, you have a chance to see exactly what other parents are saying as well.
So 'yes' I'm very excited for you, but I also know that you probably have a lot of questions, so please feel free to call me or to call the Crème school closest to you so we can answer your questions and help you get started on the right path.
In the meantime I'd like to officially welcome you to the world of Crème and give you a peek into our home...
Stand Alone Facilities
Each Crème facility is a stand alone building with a large parking area, a secure entranceway, and over 21,000 square-feet where children can express themselves while they learn, laugh and play.
Friendly Parent Lounge
Within each Crème is a comfortable area where parents
are welcome to relax and observe their children on close-circuit television as they interact, learn and play together.
Entranceway Into The Crème Classes
From the natural, energizing sunlight streaming in from an atrium skylight, to the enrichment classes, to the caring staff, every aspect of your child's experience at Crème is designed to enhance their learning and their enjoyment.
Where Learning and Socialization Is Fun
Our learning-inspired floor plan has individually themed
rooms throughout the campus and age-appropriate décor, all carefully designed to let children blossom.
Enriching Infant Rooms
According to Dr. Pam Schiller, author and leading expert in early brain development, the environment plays a profound role in a child's brain structure and capacity beginning at birth. Early experiences forge the wiring foundation for emotional intelligence, thinking skills, language, motor skills, and refine and enhance the wiring for vision and hearing. The quality, quantity and consistency of stimulation help to determine the number and quality of brain synapses formed, and how those synapses will function. At Crème, infants enjoy the right environment and the right team to ensure that those early “dirt road connections” become “super highways.”
Infant Play Areas
Infants hold a special place in our hearts, and that shows in our infant play areas designed to give our smaller students the room they need to stretch their body and their brain. Constantly supervised, meticulously clean, and soft enough for the most discriminating little hands and feet.
Toddler Play Areas
Crème understands the transition from infant to toddler can be different for every child, so our toddler rooms are equipped with everything from changing areas to toddler sized toilets, and from tables and chairs to soft climbers.
Children 2 and up begin their day in their homeroom, where they're encouraged to select from a variety of supervised, yet child-initiated activities as they can socialize and learn.
The Math Lab
Children discover core math concepts like patterning,
sequencing, and problem-solving by playing math games with their peers and teachers.
The Science Lab
The Crème science lab is a place where children can express themselves, while they learn, laugh and begin to understand science.
Starting young is important for many brain skills, but being around a second language from a young age has become essential.
Everyday story-telling becomes a powerful learning tool and there is a rich variety of children's literature.
This cozy place is where children discover and learn from social activities, puppet shows and language arts.
When engaging in pretend play students learn interpersonal skills while trying on different roles that allow for self-expression.
As they see their reflection in full-length mirrors, children learn to express themselves, enhance coordination, improve gross motor skills and gain a positive-self-image.
Watch as your children begin to use computers better,
faster and easier than most adults.
Build Confidence With KREM T.V.
Crème students get a chance to create, direct,
and star in their own news broadcast.
The Crème Kitchen
Healthy menus including a variety of foods are prepared by our chef. The menus meet USDA meal pattern requirements and include whole grains and fresh produce whenever possible.
The Crème Outdoor Park
When it's time to play, the Crème park is the only place to be, with age-specific playgrounds, a tennis court, a basketball court, a soccer field, a mini-trike garage, and of course the Crème water park.
