Creative World Aurora
701 Shoreline Dr.
Aurora, IL 60504
Creative World Schools are known for the “Wow!” children and families feel (and even say out loud!) as they enter our beautiful buildings. Creative World Aurora is no different. We opened our doors in 2007, and our state of the art facility has quality, age appropriate classrooms ready for learning and fun for Infants through School Age children. Here are just a few highlights of what our building has to offer.
This centerpiece of our building is a fully functional “Wonder Room” with interactive, hands-on educational activities for our Preschool program. Beautiful murals and skylights thirty feet above capture the imagination of parents and children alike. More information about the awesome educational programs offered in the Exploratorium™ is available here.
Creative World classrooms are designed thoughtfully and specifically with the age of each child in mind. With the safety of our children at the top of our list, we equip our classrooms with quality child-sized furniture and equipment, windows between rooms, and video monitors. Throughout each classroom, you will find shelves full of age appropriate toys that inspire imagination and education. In our 40+ years of experience in childcare, we have learned a lot about what children need to succeed in these important early years and we make sure our classrooms are ready to meet those needs and exceed expectations.
Our gymnasium is an outlet for all the energy and wiggles of our students! No matter the weather, Creative World kids have the opportunity to be active and continue to develop their gross motor skills. We also offer Enrichment classes in our gym, as well as hold special events.
Large, State of the Art Playgrounds
Our outdoor environments are an important part of our curriculum. Every class has the opportunity to visit our dynamic playground for 30 minutes in the morning and the afternoon. Creative World playgrounds offer children opportunities to exercise and practice important physical activities. We take the time to bring learning outdoors! You may find us painting, building, or sifting sand as part of our daily enrichments.
