About Our School
Creative Connections Play School
A mission of Hopewell Presbyterian Church
We facilitate creative thinking and value personal interests in our supportive, enriching environment where children are encouraged to grow to their full potential.
Creative Connections Play School is a non-profit program for children ages 3-5. We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. Reggio inspired activities are about exploration and discovery; exploring with our senses, asking questions, testing hypotheses, making plans and thinking deeply. CCPS offers a preschool program which provides optimum learning conditions to allow children to make their ideas happen.
At CCPS, we understand that children learn through play and express themselves through many "languages". These "languages" or modes of expression include words, movement, drawing, painting, sculpture, shadow play, collage and music. The children at Creative Connections are immersed in these many “languages” through hands-on activities.
Our dynamic teachers plan through documentation, collaboration and conversation with our students to foster self-expression while affirming the competencies in each child. Children interact with peers, parents, teachers and our community while engaging in experiences designed to optimize their ability to construct understandings. We seek to nourish each child's potential which allows for a life-long love of learning and helps children grow their God given gifts and talents.
