Established in 1980 and nationally accredited by the NECPA, Creative Kids Learning Center fosters the development of children aged 18 months to 12 years while meeting each of the standards set forth by the "10 Signs of a Great Preschool."

The center's hands-on philosophy emphasizes five key components, including professionalism and education, which consistently shine through the words and actions of a staff that is certified in first aid, CPR, and refereeing wrestling matches between imaginary friends.

Most babies don't get to star in home videos until after they're born, but at My Baby Bump Imaging, celebrity precedes their first birthday. The registered technicians on staff conduct 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D ultrasounds—the last of which entails watching the baby's movement in real time. As expectant mothers recline on a bed, up to 15 guests can gather around a 110-inch viewing screen, where detailed images of the child's face and features appear.

The 3-D and 4-D packages include both of those services as well as prints, CDs of the captured images, and a DVD set to the music of their choice.
