Welcome to Creekside Early Childhood School



Dear Lakota Families,

Welcome to Creekside Early Childhood School, a truly special place for your child to begin his/her Lakota educational journey. At Creekside, teachers and families partner together to grow each child to their greatest potential. Students are provided with challenging learning experiences that consider their individual academic starting points and needs. With a focus on the whole child, we work to develop a community that cares about themselves, others, and the world around them. Our school motto states:

Here at Creekside we…

Take Care of Others
Take Care of Ourselves

Take Care of this Place

We know that this is not possible without support from our families and community members.  We encourage families to become involved at our school and volunteer whenever you can. There are many small ways you can offer support. Our PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is a great way to get connected with other parent partners to find opportunities to get involved. You can find the meeting schedule on our Creekside Webpage. You are a very important part of our Creekside family, and together, we can provide an enriching, well-rounded educational experience for all our students.

We believe that open and effective communication is the key to forming partnerships. We encourage you to share your thoughts, ideas, and vision for your child with their teacher. Furthermore, we strongly encourage you to call our office at any time with feedback or concerns.  It is our responsibility to support parents and teachers to ensure that all our students succeed and grow this year.  You can contact us at 513-874-0175 or via email at: [email protected] or

Look for information about Creekside events and updates in our weekly emails “Creekside Connections” and PTO newsletters. Also, check out our Facebook page and twitter account (#Creeksidetweet) for pictures and current happenings. Sign up to receive the weekly newsletters on our Creekside website.

We look forward to an exciting year with you and your child, filled with curiosity, wonder, and growth.  Please do not hesitate to call or stop by if you have a question or concern.
