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 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.

About Ms. Martha:

 

Hello!  My name is Martha Schwalm.  This is my second year here at Creative School, and I am so happy to be here. I taught four year olds for several years at Schreiber Methodist before coming here to teach a threes class last year.   I enjoyed my students last year and I look forward to continuing to work with some of them this year.  While the three year olds are a lot of fun, the increasing language skills of the four year olds make them my favorite group to work with. 

I have a degree in English Literature and Elementary Education.   I love to read and cook, both in and out of our classroom.  I have four children of my own (two boys, two girls; ages 19, 17, 10, and 8) and I have been married to my husband Hans for 22 years.  I am a proud native Texan.  I love to camp and spend time outdoors and my goal is to someday camp at every one of the Texas State Parks.

Every day is full of learning experiences in preschool, and we will have a great time learning about the world together.  We are going to have a great year!
