Our Mission

Our guiding mission is to provide children with many enriching and diverse learning opportunities -- with focus in the four (4) domains of learning --social, educational, physical and emotional.

As a partner with our parents, this multifaceted approach is a continuation of the great work they [Our Parents] do outside of the care of THEMBA.

THEMBA strives to provide our families with a high quality experience by maintaining an accreditation from the National Accreditation Commission (NAC).

This national recognition provides the framework for us to implement a highly qualified child care facility --The Premier in the area!

our philosophy

Your child is a unique and valuable treasure. At Themba Creative Learning Center, our experienced staff provides the opportunity for your child to grow, to learn, and to realize his or her fullest potential.


Each child is accepted as a very special individual having a unique timetable for growing and learning.

We believe that children should be provided with an environment in which they can explore, Wonder, create, investigate, ask questions and enjoy the world in which they live.


The cognitive, emotional, physical and social potential of your child will fulfill your fondest hopes. Our staff consists of warm, kind, caring individuals who are committed to your child's superior growth.

Parent/Themba Partnership

THEMBA believes that the parent is the child’s first teacher; therefore we respect the parent’s role and influence they have. We strive to work in partnership with home by strongly encouraging parental involvement in our center.

Daily communication is most important to both parents and teachers. If you don't have time to speak with the teacher or director, please send an email or drop a note in the suggestion box. We encourage all parents to sign up to become a Parent Partner an initiative that started in 2013.

THEMBA has an open door policy at all times. Parents may visit the Center and child’s classroom at any time, to observe, evaluate and assist! Parent volunteers are especially welcome on field trips! Parents may call the Center during the day to ask how their child is doing, but please remember that teachers are busy in the classrooms. The Director will check on the child and report back. Teachers are available to speak directly with parents from 12:30-2:30pm daily.

Parents are encouraged to attend Back to School Night held in October. This is an opportunity to meet your child’s Teachers at the beginning of each new school year. Special programming at Back to the School Night gives parents a chance to experience their child’s day!
