Our Community

Creative World School at Estero is located just off Estero Parkway on Cypress View Drive, right across from Three Oaks Elementary School. Much more than just a daycare, our preschool offers child care and learning opportunities for all ages.

Our buses provide safe and easy transportation for your child to and from San Carlos Elementary, Pinewoods Elementary, and Three Oaks Elementary schools. We understand that proper education and safety are top priorities for parents, so we ensure that children make it to school safely and promptly every morning.

Here at our Creative World School Estero location, we greatly appreciate our surrounding communities of Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples, San Carlos, and Fort Myers. Stop by and take a tour today!

iSTEAM

You will see iSTEAM in action when you visit our Creative World School Exploratorium™. Our hands-on approach integrates STEAM learning opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and investigate real-world ideas. Investigating real questions through inquiry learning is the foundation of our curriculum. Inquiry is the “i” in iSTEAM and encourages a student’s curiosity as they develop problem solving skills and build a foundation for lifelong learning.

owners

Amy and Chris O'Malley

Amy and Chris O’Malley find it an honor and privilege to be the proud owners of Creative World School Three Oaks, Preschool at the Lamb, and soon to be Creative World Gateway. They moved to Estero, Florida from Massachusetts 9 years ago and feel fortunate to live in the community they serve.

They have three wonderful children, Mairin, Alison and Liam. Their daughters graduated from the Preschool at the Lamb program and their son is currently attending Creative World Three Oaks. Amy taught at the Preschool at the Lamb for three years, and also worked for Lamb of God Church as the Director of Children’s Ministries and taught chapel to the children at the preschool for two years. Chris has been in the corporate/business world for over 20 years.

While Amy and Chris were in the hospital welcoming their son, Chris shared that he wanted to explore becoming a Creative World School franchisee. He had researched many other franchise opportunities in the past but wanted to own something that would allow them to make a positive impact in the local community. Creative World seemed like the perfect combination of interests for both Amy and Chris. Amys’ passion and experience working with young children, and Chris’ financial and business experience, convinced them that an early childhood franchise would be a rewarding adventure for the entire family.

Amy said, “Creative World School was an obvious choice as our two daughters had received an amazing education and I was familiar with the philosophies and curriculum components. We also appreciate their commitment to providing the highest level of care and education to children. Everyone in the organization has the utmost integrity and their decisions as a company always revolve around a desire to care for the well-being of the entire child. We both truly believe in Creative World’s innovative approach to learning. Who wouldn’t want to work in an environment that celebrates the curiosity of young children by continuously providing opportunities to inspire their imagination and encourage their development!”

The O’Malleys are extremely committed to the development and growth of young children. At their schools they strive to offer a stimulating and educational experience, while promoting each child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. They maintain the goal to support children’s desires to be life-long learners and achievers by proving the highest level of quality care and education in the safest, most secure environment available. Amy feels that that children have an unlimited potential and Creative World is the unique and supportive environment to encourage their growth.

Amy is on site each day providing operational support to the schools. Chris maintains a full-time job outside of the schools while providing financial and business development support for each of their locations. They would love to meet your family and share with you all the extraordinary qualities of Creative World Schools.

Maria Rodriguez

My name is Maria Rodriguez and I have loved working with children for most of my life. I began my journey in education almost thirty years ago, teaching the children of migrant families. A few years later, I became the director of a preschool that provided Early Head Start, Migrant Head Start, and School Readiness programs. I am a credentialed director in the state of Florida. I began with Creative World School in Tampa, Florida on the Leadership Team of two different schools. Because I wanted to be closer to my family, I relocated to southwest Florida and came on board to help lead our Creative World School in Estero! I enjoy my children and grandchild, and working hard to make Creative World a success! I am a fair-minded, even-tempered leader and enjoy training my staff to be excellent educators. I know that our job and privilege is to instill the joys of learning in each child, and that is what we seek to do every day!

Family buzz

The pieces that make Creative World in Estero phenomenal are the staff, the food menu provided to the students--fresh and healthy--, the hands on learning, questioning skills used in the academics, the cleanliness, and the overall aspect that my daughter truly enjoys and looks forward on going to school everyday. The sense of "safety" and "love" you all provide to not only my own daughter, but to all the children is quite a beautiful sight to see. Thank you for helping us provide our daughter with a meaningful, safe, fun, and loving education! The love for learning starts with the little ones---and Creative World surely instills that into all the children! :) K.A.
