Mission Statement

“Children are a gift from the Lord.” Psalms 127:3. Creation Academy believes in promoting the love of Christ in a fun and nurturing environment while enabling children to build life skills and grow to their potential in preparation for their future.

Curriculum

Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Ages 10 months (as of 9/1) through 5 years.

Creation Academy offers fun-filled, themed days where children learn about history, famous people, sports, nutrition, and destinations! We mix our classroom schedule with crafts, songs, active play, and academics. The children are assessed regularly to make sure they are academically improving and ready for Kindergarten. We offer curriculum that stimulates thinking, builds communication skills, and social skills.

Because we believe that instilling Christian values is important at an early stage, we provide weekly Chapel time where we learn the valuable Bible lessons that can be put into practice daily. We strive to instill and learn about God’s love for each and every one of us. Creation Academy believes in promoting a fun, active, and nurturing environment for each child to grow to their wonderful potential. Our 5-year-old class is introduced to the Spanish language, which includes learning numbers and colors.

Special Program

J.U.M.P. Yoga – (“J.U.M.P.” stands for Joyfully Uniting Movement and Peace) Creation Academy is always looking for creative opportunities to give your child a strong and healthy foundation that will last beyond the preschool years. Our Yoga program develops body awareness, language, good listening skills, cooperation and powers of observation. It teaches the children about nature, their environment and inspires their imaginations. They learn by playing, singing, moving and imitating…and most of all the kids LOVE it!

State Licensed Requirements and Information

Creation Academy is licensed through the State of Texas Department of Family Protective Services.

Each teacher is required to meet several standards before they are allowed to provide care to the children.

School Year Information

Creation Academy – This program follows the GPISD calendar for the school year and most holidays. Our regular school year generally runs from September to May, observing Thanksgiving Break (1 week), Christmas and New Year’s Break (2 weeks) and Spring Break (1 week). We are also not in session for MLK Day in January.

Creation Playcation (Summer Program) – Just because the school year wraps up doesn’t mean that children have to put their growth and development on hold. It is important to ensure they are learning every day — even summer days. That’s why Creation Academy provides flexibility for your schedule with world-class fun and creativity throughout the summer.

From June to July, Creation Academy has a 6-week, 4-day program for children 18 months to 5 years. During this time, students will play, craft, sing, and have a fun themed experience like no other!
