One Preschool Mother’s Mission To Find The Best Online Preschool For Her Daughter...
Updated: Apr 27
by Penny Waverly - preschool mom Dec 26, 2020 Updated: April 07, 2023 I was on a mission starting in the spring when COVID-19 first began to spread widely to find the best online preschool for my 4-year-old daughter. We all want the best for our children, especially in their youngest, most vulnerable years. The long search was worth the wait when I found Creative Kids Virtual Preschool and Ms. Denise – not to mention Ollie the Crow (Ms. Denise's cute puppet helper)! I worried about finding a virtual preschool program that would hold my child’s interest. It’s just not the same as in-person learning. My daughter is a bit high energy, and it’s hard to keep her attention sometimes. I was afraid that online pre K would be boring for her. I searched and looked at I don’t know how many programs. I researched what I should look for and what to pay. My child’s education is priceless, but we are a normal family on a budget, especially with COVID-19 issues to deal with. I wanted someone with experience but a virtual preschool program that would reach her right here at home, whether she uses it on the laptop in her room or on the computer in our office. I just knew I needed something both educational and fun, with projects and other things to keep my child busy, but learning. Many of the preschool online learning programs seemed stuffy and too “educational,” if that makes sense – they didn’t make learning fun. To me, that’s a must for our youngest. I’m now one of hundreds if not thousands of moms of preschool children who have discovered Ms. Denise and wow! What a life saver as we put up with the problems caused by COVID-19. As I said, I tried other online preschool programs and my child was bored. Now, she loves Ms. Denise so much that she asks to do preschool every day. We’d be lost without this program! As in many families, the proof is on the refrigerator – our fridge is decorated with many of her creations thanks to Ms. Denise’s fun ideas. I don’t think my daughter even realizes she’s doing virtual preschool sometimes. She just has fun and makes cool stuff! She loves to show it off. I don’t usually expect “something for nothing,” but the free online preschool offered at Creative Kids has been perfect for us. I was afraid for my daughter’s future when it looked like she might miss her first year of preschool because of the pandemic. Ms. Denise’s lessons have made a huge difference in expanding her education beyond what I as a parent can offer. Her virtual Pre K lessons are thoughtful, interactive, and really well put together, as good as and even better than any others I’ve seen. This is truly like an answered prayer for our family. Even my older children seem a little jealous that my 4-year-old has such a good time learning! Ms. Denise’s preschool online learning is convenient, with prerecorded lessons that we can use whenever we need them. They’re about 30 minutes long and are fun along with being engaging and educational. As I said, I was afraid that virtual preschool might be boring, but the curriculum that Ms. Denise offers FREE (I still can’t believe it!) is theme based with things my 4-year-old loves, like farms, insects, pets, seasons, community helpers, and dinosaurs, as examples. She enjoys the hands-on projects and story times with Ms. Denise and songs they all sing with Ollie. They keep her attention, and Ms. Denise really knows how to connect with children. There is just something really special about the way she teaches. She talks to the kids as if they are actually there with her in the same room. She asks lots of questions, giving her preschool students a chance to interact by responding (even though in reality she can’t hear them, of course). My child is enthralled. Ms. Denise is motherly, she’s cool, and she gets excited about things the way my preschooler gets excited, so she connects with the kids on their level, which my daughter absolutely loves! I have to re-think that old saying that “you get what you pay for,” because this online pre K is excellent – and it really is free! It’s the best virtual preschool I can recommend from personal experience. I can’t thank Ms. Denise enough. I feel I’ve found the best online preschool for my daughter to get her started in her education. Other online preschool programs just don’t measure up to this one. And I know that Ms. Denise really cares because she offers her online preschool curriculum for free. Who else does that?! I would encourage any parent looking at online preschool programs for their children to try Creative Kids and be prepared to be blown away with Ms. Denise and how much fun their youngster will have learning with her! Meet Ms. Denise at https://www.creativekidsvirtualpreschool.com/ and be prepared to be impressed! No other free virtual preschool, or paid online preschool program for that matter, measures up, in my mind! 607 views 43 comments 6 likes. Post not marked as liked6

My 3 year old granddaughter has been watching your lessons since she still could not attend in person preschool this year because of the sickie bugs. She LOVES your school. I am so glad we found you. She adores you and Ollie and talks about you all day long. For the first time she is excited for more than 10 minutes about doing school work. In addition to watching you online, we have been doing the projects and printing out the materials and doing them too. Just like many of the other reviews, she asks to do school work and brings me her i-pad every morning to login to see her teacher. She truly believes that you can hear her answers and gets so excited when you use "her" answer! Her favorite part is catching and sending kisses to Ollie!!! Thank you for doing this for the children, it is truly appreciated.

I found this program through a Facebook ad in January. I love how simple and fun the projects that Ms. Denise has for the kids. I love that these projects do not require a lot of materials or preparation time. My daughter loves Ms. Denise and Ollie the crow. I love that Ms. Denise makes each lesson interactive despite it being virtual and prerecorded. My daughter loves the singing, games, and the fun stories that Ms. Denise reads each and every lesson. Creative Kids Virtual Preschool has replaced most of our normal screen time. I too have looked into other preschool programs and haven't found anything anywhere near the quality for free or the low cost of a given semester. We are hoping to join in on the Spring semester. Like Reply shilpa.phansalkarJan 30 Creative Kids Virtual Preschool by Miss Denise is a great initiative! I am really lucky to have found the website. It is the first online preschool I signed up for my 4 year old daughter and I was sure she will definitely enjoy learning with Miss Denise. My kid loves doing the videos, singing song with Miss Denise and Ollie. She gets compeletely engrossed in the different stories, games and the creative projects showed on each topic. Most of the times she also loves to watch the videos of her favorite topics again and again. My kid is learning so much before going to Kindergarden, which I never expected she can do from home, after we decided not to send her to school this year. The preschool that provided us with free curriculum,is really special and close to our heart. The winter session is also very educational and fun, with varied exciting projects. Thank you so much Miss Denise for putting tremendous efforts in making our kids happy in this difficult times, and to maintain their interest in learning! Like Reply itssharinaJan 28 So glad we found Ms Denise’s classes. My 3 year old daughter absolutely loves her classes and asks for it all the time. Her presentations are very colorful and educational. Despite being pre-recorded, my daughter interacts during her classes more than she did in some live virtual classes we tried with her. She enjoys the storybooks, the games and most of all the projects at the end of the class. Ollie is a perfect addition too. Thank you Ms Denise for putting in so much effort into it and making the fall classes available for free. We are looking forward to the spring classes.

I decided to hold my older son back from in person preschool because of the pandemic. I’m so glad I found these classes online for him instead. Ms. Denise makes learning fun for kids and surprisingly engaging for her classes being pre-recorded. I love that we can watch when it is convenient for us! I don’t have to worry my sons are missing class because something unexpected popped up in our schedule. That was one of the biggest draws for me. Her website is also extremely easy to use. My too smart for his own good 4 year old figured out how to turn the classes on by himself. I will definitely continue the courses for my 3 year old when my older son goes off to kindergarten. Thank you Ms. Denise! Like Reply smkeomisyahbcJan 25 My son is absolutely taken to Ms. Denise from Creative Kids Virtual Preschool. The lessons run approximately 30-32 minutes and Ms. Denise and her sweet puppet friend Ollie captivate the kids attention from the beginning to end with their hello song and goodbye song. The children work on everything from color, numbers, alphabet, story time, and poems in the most creative ways!. Ms. Denis always responds to my messages about my son and loves the pictures that I send to her. Also she has a wonderful FB page where there are a community of parents, very like minded all wanting the very best for their children.
We are so very blessed to have found this preschool and have every intention to stay with it!.
We reside in Texas, and COVID has been beyond hard here, the requirements for children this age to wear masks, compounded with the constant risk of exposure were simply too much for our family and thankfully we found Ms. Denise.
Give it a try you will literally watch your kids learning and fall in love with being a part of the process.
Meet Ms. Denise at https://www.creativekidsvirtualpreschool.com/ and you will see! No other FREE virtual preschool, or paid online preschool program loves on your kids and teaches them like Ms. Denise. She is one of a kind!

We were continuing those classes until I came across Ms Denise virtual program on Facebook. The content and the structure looked good, so I decided to give it a try. I can say that these virtual classes are far better than the virtual classes provided by my kids preschool. The kid feels the classes are interactive even when they are not. The content is superb and the price is great too!! We stopped our kid's preschool classes and moved to Ms Denise virtual classes. Thank you so much Ms Denise!!

A friend of a friend recommended Ms. Denise and we are SO grateful! He LOVES Ms. Denise. The lessons are perfect and he’s learning. I think it’s a great program on its own or a supplement with other in-person learning. We highly recommend Ms. Denise! You’ll be glad you joined her school. Like Reply lbosken17Jan 19 I was so sad that my daughter would not be able to attend preschool since all of our local schools closed due to COVID and then we came across Creative Kids Virtual Preschool with Miss Denise and Ollie, her puppet crow who sends and catches kisses at the end of each lesson. I cannot put into words how thankful we are for what Miss Denise has put together. The Fall lessons that she offered for everyone were great but the winter lessons are even more amazing. The daily videos are so engaging, fun, and educational. Starting with the ‘Hello Song’ to the games, stories, and poems that teach important skills, and the daily crafts and ‘Goodbye Song’, my daughter loves it. My 2 and 1 year olds will also sit and be attentive for most of the video too! I am blown away by all of the materials that are also part of the program. Each day has a bonus craft and mini lesson and there are many papers that are easy to print to practice writing letters and numbers, and skills such as patterns, coloring, cutting, and others. Miss Denise is also really active on her Facebook page and it makes my daughters day to hear what Miss Denise has said about how she did on her project when we post. Before we found Miss Denise, I had thought that I could come up with fun ways to go over letters and things with my daughter and I very quickly realized that it was beyond what I could do without guidance. The truest statement from the Creative Kids Virtual Preschool is that it IS “where kids ask to do school” Thank You Miss Denise!

Miss Denise is exactly the teacher I would wish for if school were in person and I'm so happy to have found such an engaging person to help guide my little guy. I love that she reads so many cute stories that we don't have at home and the project ideas are both educational and fun! This is a great introduction for the littlest learners and excellent content for the older preschoolers as well. Miss Denise, thank you for such a great start to our weekdays! Like Reply laura.hostetterJan 15 As a certified teacher turned stay at home mom, I am really picky about how my littles spend their screen time. I knew this year if they were going to be watching something that I wanted it to be educational. I like that this program is a real person and I love Ollie the adorable puppet. Ms. Denis moves at a real life pace, and I appreciate her use of concrete objects in her lessons along with the integration of songs, and books. I'm a huge fan of her felt board and how she uses it to highlight key elements of the lesson. I like that she gives pauses for the kids to shout out their own answers. I chose to use this program because my children are watching a real person and it feels more like how an in person lesson would be. We started with the free lessons and decided to buy into the Winter ones as well. Like Reply zzamandahallJan 14 My daughter is three years old and quickly lost interest in my being her teacher since she could not attend preschool in person this year. But she loves to watch Ms. Denise and then do the projects. Every project is perfect for her age and ability level. They also use craft supplies I have around the house anyway and can set up in minutes. I’m so glad we found Ms. Denise. She and her preschool are saving my sanity and doing a great job of teaching my daughter. Like Reply mvbarralJan 14 While our two older kids went to school or participate by virtual mode, our youngest daughter (three years old) had nothing to do and felt sad, because they siblings were occupied doing homework. So, we started to look for a virtual learning for her, not only to give her the first steps on words and numbers but in English. This was by far, the best virtual preschool learning that we found, she loves the classes and the activities!! She is so excited every time that have to see the classes. Like Reply sgarciaherrera29Jan 14 I have two daughters who are 5 and 3 years old, when the pandemic started my first born was 4 and due to start preschool. We decided that it was best to not register her since we were unsure of what the future held for our schools. I have some experience working with children in my professional career but I have never taught or came up with my own curriculum. I was very excited to come across Creative Kids Preschool on Facebook. I had already been doing my own lessons with the girls but Miss Denise was a blessing! If you are looking to provide your little ones with great lessons that are fun and captivating this is it! It’s affordable and easy to follow. Miss Denise provides you with everything you need each week including supplemental worksheets and activities. We absolutely love this program!

He loves all the activities they do each work and learning about new stuff.

All of the projects are great and the best part IMO. We do not print out and do the worksheets or extra practice anymore as we are in it for the stories and projects :) So worth it. My daughter likes to watch some over her favorites again. Also at dinner she tells us all about everything she learned: "Did you know that caterpillars turn into butterflies!?!?!" I was struggling to get some structure to our day, and come up with fun things to do. This curriculum was the answer to my prayers. Like Reply afra.saeed.ahmadJan 14 As a full-time working mother with two kids home in the pandemic, an older son navigating a new middle school virtual learning environment and my 4-year old daughter , I was at a lost of how to educate her from home. I had never "homeschooled" before, desperately needed some structure and ideas, but wanted my daughter to have fun learning! I searched everywhere and joined a ton of FB and IG groups. I would screenshot ideas, but they often stayed in one place: my phone. A demanding job made it hard to make these ideas a reality. But, when I found Ms. Denise's virtual preschool, it was seriously an answer to my prayers. She had themes/topics each week, book list, supply list and associated extra activities/worksheets for learning. The organization has been a lifesaver as I prep on the weekend and make sure all supplies are ready for the week and am able to spend quality time with my daughter helping her during the week. In addition, Ms. Denise walks through all the steps for projects making it easy to do (can't say that for all the projects I come across). I can't believe how much my daughter remembers and learns! I would not have been able to do this on my own, thank you Ms. Denise for saving preschool for Aleema this year! Like Reply butcher.annJan 14 Ms. Denise is amazing.

At the time, I was disappointed that my 3 year old would not have the same preschool experience as her sister. Luckily Ms. Denise came to the rescue! I noticed a Facebook ad for a free virtual preschool program for the fall and decided to register. This program has far exceeded my expectations and we decided to continue with the winter program. Each day, Ms. Denise truly connects with the children and provides meaningful lessons. Beyond the lessons, she provides additional ideas for activities that we can do with our children offline. I love this because it allows us to easily extend the week's lessons without being connected to the screen. What started out as disappoint that my daughter would not have a typical preschool experience has turned into such a blessing. I have been able to work with my daughter everyday, seeing those "a-ha" moments first hand. This time together is something that I will always cherish.

We were sure to send our kid to preschool as he turned 4. But then the pandemic came. Ms. Denise with her affordable rates is a godsend. It helped us create much needed structure to our day. Thank you, Ms. Denise.

We had already decided prior to the pandemic that we wouldn’t enroll my 3yo son into preschool until he was 4, to save money. During the pandemic, I figured he should learn some basics, so I started teaching him to recognize letters and numbers. I also have a 6yo, so when she started “zoom school," I decided to start homeschooling him. So I bought a book to give me more structure and guidance, and also supplement with YouTube videos. I had low hopes for him because he has a short attention span and has never been in a classroom setting. But he surprised me. He’s been doing pretty well with writing his numbers and letters and actually remembering them as we move along. I was going to purchase another book after completing the letters. Then a friend told me about this FREE Creative Kids Virtual Preschool! The book and these classes have similar themes, so I decided to give these classes a try. And as it turns out, my son loves it! He told me he really likes his new teacher, Ms. Denise! I even caught him singing the hello song! I guess “Teacher Mommy” isn’t cutting it for him haha I don't blame him; it’s not my cup of tea, neither. I’m really happy about his excitement for these classes because in the past, whenever we would mention that he would go to school soon, he would start crying. So when the time comes for him to actually GO to school, I hope he will be more open and willing. Ms. Denise is really engaging. I feel like we are actually in the classroom with her!
