Family buzz

The staff is amazing. Shama, the owner, always has a smile on her face and never seems to be flustered even when a lot is going on. Shannon, our daughter's main teacher, is off the charts spectacular. I would recommend her to any parent any day. She loves all of her students as if they were her own kids. She is wonderful with the kids. Everything is so well thought out! The attention to detail is unmatched. Our daughter loves going to school and she is a momma's girl, so the fact that she is excited to go everyday speaks volumes of everyone there. The owners, the teachers, the front desk staff, the bus driver and everyone in between are all phenomenal. Our daughter is learning so much! She loves the centers! It is one of her favorite things to do at school. The other day she was doing compound words, opposites, rhyming words and letter-word associations with her 9 year old sister. Impressive to say the least! Creative World Oakstead is Phenomenonal!
