ABOUT USDay Care & Learning Center in Southwest Houston
At Creative Care Academy, we are always educating minds
and reaching potentials. It is a place where children learn, play and grow!
Creative Care Academy is an early learning center and child care for infants, toddlers, PreK and Afterschool children. Our program uses developmentally appropriate practices to promote active exploration in all areas of development: physical, social, emotional, linguistic, adaptive, and cognitive learning.
Creative Care Academy has been serving the Southwest Houston area for the past 13 years. We are proud to say that we have 2 Texas School Ready classrooms provided by the University of Texas. Our director Kris Hernandez has been a part of our community from the start and our children adore her.
Our Philosophy and Approach:
The goal of Creative Care Academy is to provide every child with the foundation they need for long-term success. Our highly trained teachers use the most current, research-based methods to deliver learning in a manner that is most appropriate to the child’s developmental age and stage.
Our philosophy is rooted in widely accepted early-childhood research that indicates the deepest, most effective learning is ingrained through play-based learning. Our strong academic curriculum supports free and structured learning in both the group, and individual setting, by providing a cognitive, physical, social, and emotional framework to play-based learning. Play is an essential part of childhood. It offers the freedom children need to explore their surroundings, develop new ideas and concepts, and build a sense of competence, autonomy, and a positive self-concept. Play based learning allows children to apply what they have learned to different situations, and practice decision making in each scenario.
We believe children learn how to form positive, caring, cooperative relationships by interacting with children and adults. Our low teacher-to-student ratio facilitates such interactions in a safe, secure, and nurturing environment. Through these interactions, children build valuable social and emotional skills, and learn to get along with others.
We view our children and families as our partners. We believe open and honest communication builds a partnership that ensures the full needs of a child are met. We also recognize parents as the most important adults in the lives of their children. It is, therefore, our goal is to involve our parents and families in creating a successful learning experience for each child, and assist in the task of providing a strong foundation for their child’s future development.

I have been a teacher in Alief ISD and Fort Bend ISD for over 7 years and decided one day that I wanted to provide a center for children where they can learn, grow and play. Creative Care Academy gave me that place and we were able to teach so many children that were in need of stability in their lives. With partnering up with the Texas School Ready Program provided by the University of Texas, we have created an atmoshphere of learning. We are a caring and friendly environment, with staff that love to work with children. We want to continue to improve our center and create a learning atmoshphere for the children.

I have been in the childcare industry for over six years. I started as a toddler teacher and then got promoted to Assistant Director. From there I got my Director’s license and worked as a director. I came to Creative Care Academy in December 2017. I am very excited to be a part of this team and can’t wait to grow with the company..
At Creative Care Academy, we believe our success lies in continually educating young minds and reaching potentials.
