SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Summer is less than three months away and Creative Kids Academy (CKA) of South Plainfield is gearing up to provide fun and flexible options for parents and caregivers. From the end of June through the last week of August, the Clinton Avenue preschool and day care will run both summer camp as well as play camp with both programs open to children ages 2- to 6-years old. 

“During the summer months, many children regress due to lack of routine, structure and organized instruction/playtime, it is important to keep kids engaged and stimulated,” said CKA owner/director Dan Rinaldi. “Kids who attend a structured camp are more prepared – socially and academically, come September.”

CKA’s Summer Camp will feature weekly themes such as ‘Superhero Week’ and ‘Adventure Week’ as well as enriching crafts, structured activities, outdoor and indoor play, water fun, gym, cooking and special programs, including Mad Science. This year, the summer camp program will run from June 29 through the last week of August. Full- or half-day programs for five, three, or two days are available.

CKA will once again also offer two, 4-week Play Camps Monday through Wednesday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Programs of this nature, according to Rinaldi, foster a safe environment for socialization and are a great way for children to stay active. 

“It’s a short enough amount of time away from home but long enough to have an awesome experience,” he said, adding that the goal at CKA is to provide students with the best possible care, support and guidance. 

CKA’s Summer Camp and Play Camp programs are both open to children ages 2 through 1st grade. Registration is now open and tours are available by calling (908) 753-4477.

Creative Kids Academy is located at 1615 Clinton Avenue in South Plainfield. For additional information, call or or email the school through its Facebook page at
