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.  

Melanie Martin, Creative Music and Movement

About Ms. Melanie: 

I am one of the Music and Movement teachers here at The Creative School.  This is my third year teaching music and I was the librarian here for three years before that.  I also sent both of my boys here for their preschool experience, and I was very active in the Parent Club.  Let’s just say that I have been here for quite some time! 

I received my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M in Literature and my Master’s in Education from The University of Houston.  I taught elementary school for three years before I left to raise my children.  I live in the neighboring community with David, my husband of 19 years, my son, Luke, and my son, Burke. 

I love The Creative School!
