Creative School

Hearts for Loving, Hands for Learning


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 Kindergarten. 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. Kindergarten is from 9 A.M. until 2 P.M..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.

About Ms. Fraler: 

My name is Sarah Fraler and this is my second year at Creative School as the MWF 3s teacher. I graduated from SMU with a Bachelor’s in English and a Specialization in Elementary Education with a Teaching Certification in Early Childhood-6th Grade.  I taught two years of preschool at St. Monica Catholic School, before taking a small hiatus to stay home with my children. Since coming back to teaching, however, I have enjoyed getting back into the classroom and sharing my love of learning with my students.

I grew up Dallas and actually was a student at Creative School back in the day.  I now live in Carrollton with my husband, Jeff, and our children Jacob (9 yrs), Sadie (2 yrs), and a little one coming soon (Mid-November).   Jacob is a 4th grader this year at St. Monica’s and Sadie is in the Older 2’s class here at Creative School.  We also have a black lab named Shaq, after Shaquille O’Neal – an ode to my husband’s love of the Lakers.

I love reading, sewing, and gardening (when it’s not 100 degrees outside).  But above all, I am passionate about teaching.  For as long as I can remember, I have wanted and known I would become a teacher one day. It is a joy to teach little ones and I am thrilled to be back at it this year!
