About Us

Preschool - Children play, discover & exploreWelcome to Creative Paths Learning Center! We are a family-owned early childhood center in Skokie, Illinois. Serving children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. With over 15 years of Early Childhood experience, we have created a rich learning environment that will stimulate your child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth and development.

School Philosophy

We believe that children begin their developmental journey from the very beginning.  Through play, discovery & exploration, children learn how to maximize their own unique abilities. A learning environment that is safe, creative, and encouraging allows children to build on their social/emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Through the Creative Curriculum Gold model, Creative Paths practices individualized education geared to build on children’s strengths in order to continually help them grow as individuals.

Creative Paths Mission
