About Creative Play Center

Our Philosophy

Creative Play Center intends to promote the social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of each child.  While striving to attain maximum development in these areas, our overlying concern is with the child’s self-esteem.

Fun at Creative Play CenterThe preschool offers a significant opportunity for the child to discover themselves in relation to the outside world.

We set the scene to which the child reacts, placing minimum restrictions on their spontaneous feelings and behavior.  Only when a child knows about themselves can they extend themselves to others.

By sharing in your child’s first school experience, you can help to set a warm and secure attitude toward future school involvement. By observation of your child’s play and interaction with other children, and by consultation with the trained staff, parents can better evaluate their child’s development.




Our general goals are:

  • To offer activities and experiences which are appropriate for the child’s developmental level.
  • To motivate each child toward self-sufficiency and independence by providing success-orientated experiences.
  • To accept and value each child and to help her/him to develop a strong sense of self-worth.
  • To meet the individual child’s needs while fostering group awareness and consciousness of the rights of others.

Our History

Creative Play Center originated as “Jack and Jill Cooperative Nursery School” which opened in September 1942 in a member’s home.  In 1962, the school was renamed “Creative Play Center” (CPC) to reflect its educational philosophy.  

In 1965, the school opened in Pleasant Hill.  Today, CPC is celebrating 75 years of serving the children and families of Contra Costa County. The success of the school depends on the enthusiastic support of all member families.
