Creative Critters Learning Center of West Point was Kathy and Curt’s first child care center. They opened their doors in 2004 when they couldn’t find a quality daycare program for their youngest daughter. The doors opened in July and by October they had every room filled with children. It was then and there that they realized there was a need in the community for a learning center that provided a structured, safe, educational environment for children. It is their mission to create an environment that facilitates a love of learning.

The West Point daycare location proudly serves the West Point, King and Queen, King William, Gloucester and Middlesex areas. We provide infant daycare and child care for children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. This includes a full- and half-day preschool, before and after school care, summer camps, and holiday or school closing care, as well as programs for infants and toddlers.
