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. Carolyn:

Hello, my name is Carolyn and I'm new to The Creative School this year and thrilled to be here teaching the Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 3's. I most recently taught for over ten years at Schreiber Methodist Church/Preschool which closed its doors in May of this year after many years serving the community; I'm so very thankful that I have found a new home at The Creative School where I am able to continue my love and passion - teaching preschoolers!

I'm originally from the United Kingdom, born and raised just outside of London but have lived in Dallas for many years. I am married and have two fabulous children, a Baseball playing son recently graduated from college and a drill team daughter in High School. I hold degrees both from the UK and the USA in early childhood development/special education and other than a stint in the business world when my first born was very young, I have spent the majority of my adult life working with young children.

I'm looking forward to getting to know each and every one of my new class/families!  In the meantime, several things you can expect to know about my/our class fairly quickly;

We may occasionally be both 'loud and messy' (because learning is both!), :)

We may be many things (we are preschoolers after all) but we will always be kind, and

I promise you nine months of love, laughter and learning.

See you at school!
