Welcome to Hester's Creative Schools! Here, we create an environment in which children are invited to explore, wonder, and create as they learn through play. We provide discovery experiences that encourage children to ask how and why about our world and community in a safe, nurturing environment immersed with love and values.
At Hester's, our mission is to stimulate the intellectual, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual growth of children through the use of developmentally appropriate activities. We promote a strong sense of self and recognition of each one's place in the broader community. We welcome children and families of all cultures and backgrounds to join our program.
