Creative School

Hearts for Loving, Hands for Learning


The Creative School is a non-profit school that is an extension of the Walnut Hill United Methodist Church. Founded in 1956, we are governed by the Steering Committee under the authority of the Council on Ministries and the Administrative Board. Member representation is from church members, parents and teachers. The Steering Committee approves all routine policy, program and staffing decisions of the school. Total student enrollment is approximately 130. The staff total is 12 teachers, a resource staff, 2 teacher aides, 1 librarian.


We offer programs for children from 2 years of age through Kindergarten. Children are enrolled for a nine month school year beginning in September and ending in May.


Our purpose

  • To provide children a secure and loving Christian environment that encourages each child to grow and develop at their own pace.
