Creative Nature Playschool Team

CNP is a family owned business established in January 2017. At CNP we provide an opportunity for children to socialize and learn in a fun and creative environment. Our goal is to encourage children to build a positive self image of themselves and school through arts and craft play, music play, sand play, story play, academic play (circle time), water play, and most importantly outdoor nature play. Your Playschooler will gain a love for learning in our certified Nature Explore Classroom and feel safe practicing new skills in our loving family friendly environment.
