Quality Licensed Child Care

Building Your Child’s Future

Let the Little People Play!

Welcome to Creative Child Learning Centre!

Creative Child Learning Centre is a fully licensed, non-profit child care centre that opened its doors to the community of Amherstburg in Spring of 1999. Today, we have expanded to two facilities offering full time, part-time, before and after school care to over 150 families! We are committed to providing your child with a wealth of opportunities which promotes exploration, discovery and self-regulation through the emergent curriculum.

Our mandate is simple: LET THE LITTLE PEOPLE PLAY! Children explore their natural curiosity through play and the manipulation of materials. Here at Creative Child Learning Centre, we advocate the idea of play as it allows children to problem solve, develop social skills and various thinking strategies!
