About Mrs. Debbie Blades

About Mrs. Blades:

Although I was not born in Texas, I have lived in Dallas for most of my life and grew up in this area.  I graduated from W.T. White high school and attended Texas Tech University.  My husband, Benji, and I have been married for 44 years and have two wonderful daughters, Kim and Melissa.  We are fortunate that both of our girls' families live in Dallas as well. We have 5 awesome grandchildren - four granddaughters and one grandson!

I have been blessed to be a part of Creative School since 1989, when I was hired to be the Administrative Assistant. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know so many precious children throughout the years and help nurture them.  I LOVE this community of supportive and sweet families; it is a wonderful place to be! 

The Creative School is a non-profit school and a ministry of  Walnut Hill United Methodist Church. Educating children in north Dallas for over 50 years, we offer programs for children from 2 years of age through Prekindergarden 4s. We operate on a 9 month calendar, September – May. 


Our morning preschool hours are 9 A.M.  – 12 noon with an optional extended program until 2 pm. We provide a secure and Christian environment that encourages children to learn and grow. 


Our preschool curriculum is developmentally appropriate and addresses all areas of early childhood development including: literacy, math, science, art and fine motor. Enrichment classes include Music and Movement, Spanish, and Library. Our older children also attend a weekly chapel service.
