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. Rocha:

Welcome to the Three’s class!

      It is an honor to be able to teach at Creative School again this year! This will be my 11th year, and I look forward to many more! I have worn many hats here, as a teacher of the Twos, Older Twos, the librarian, and for the past four years I have been teaching the Threes.

     I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Southern Methodist University here in Dallas, and many hours of Elementary Education from SMU as well. I am a native Dallasite, and a lover of all things Texas! In my free time, I love staying active with my wonderful husband Frank and our two beautiful children. We enjoy spending time outdoors and cherish our time together as a family.

     My children are 11 and 3, and have been a part of Creative School as well. My son Michael went all the way through to Kindergarten before going off to St. Monica, and Mia will be starting her third year here with us in the Three’s classes!

    I have a deep love for yoga, and in 2009, I began teaching after school yoga classes for children. I am a 200 hr RYT (registered yoga teacher), and am passionate about spreading the joy of yoga to all my littles! It has been amazing teaching yoga to children for the past seven years, and my little yogis also have taught me many things as well!

I am looking forward to another fantastic year at WHUMC Creative School!
