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.

Courtney A.S. Pharr

From the time she went to Romania in 1996 as a volunteer student ambassador with Operation Smile, Courtney always knew she would one day work with children. A Virginia Beach native, she attended the College of Charleston in South Carolina where she earned her degree in education. After several years of teaching and directing preschools in the Virginia Beach area, she decided that it was time to challenge her experience and passion by opening her own preschool- one that would be representative of her personal teaching style. As Owner of Creative World School at River Walk, Courtney couldn't be more excited to present our creative approach to early childhood development! As she stated in the Chesapeake Shopper, "It is a school inspired by children, and this is where my heart is." A statement that holds true to this day.

Family buzz

The teachers and staff are all so warm and welcoming. All questions and concerns are answered quickly and thoroughly and the staff seems to really care about the children. I love the daily reports, pictures, and videos throughout the day! That is the best! I know my child is safe, well fed and hydrated, having fun, potty training, and learning new things each day! I love all of the hands on activities the children get to do to further their education and also love that they get outdoor play each day. Great school overall. -Alexis Provost
