How We Began


The Creative Academy opened its doors on August 25, 2008 as the Wayne Child Development Center. In February 2009, the center received a 5 Star license from the Division of Child Development and Early Education.  This license was based on the education, teacher:child ratios, and program standards of the center.  The center continues to hold a 5 Star license.   Creative Academy is one of the 2 centers within the Child Development Division of Skill Creations inc.  After 10 years in operation, Skill Creations, Inc. purchased a new center in Rosewood to expand the Child Development Division, which is now Little Eagles Academy.  To learn more about Little Eagles Academy, please go to the Affiliaited Tab and click on Little Eagles Acdaemy.
