Purpose: In knowledge economy trends, creativity determines the competitiveness of a country; therefore,advanced countries have actively invested in enhancing student creativity. Creative teaching plays a critical role in the cultivation of creative talent, and it is considered a key factor in maintaining national competitiveness. Although numerous researchers have emphasized the personal and environmental factors associated with the development of creativity, few studies have been conducted on such factors on various levels. Method: This study recruited 551 elementary school science and technology teachers as research subjects, and it involved four phases of investigation within a 2-year period. Hierarchical linear modeling was employed to examine the dynamic development of the teachers´ creative teaching as well as the effects of playfulness in teaching and school climate of innovation on the initial implementation and growth rate of creative teaching.Result/Findings: The dimensions of interactive discussion and multiple teaching in creative teaching presented linear growth trends, whereas problem solving and autonomous learning revealed upward and then downward curve development trends; open mindedness did not exhibit any growth. Regarding playfulness motivation, pleasure positively affected the initial status of interactive discussion and autonomous learning in addition to positively influencing the linear slope of interactive growth and the growth curvature of autonomous learning. Ease and pleasure positively influenced the initial status of problem solving, multiple teaching, and autonomous learning; furthermore, active sharing positively affected the initial status of problem solving, multiple teaching, and autonomous learning in addition to positively influencing the linear slope of interactive growth and the growth curvature of multiple teaching. Regarding school climate of innovation, leadership effectiveness exerted positive effects on the initial status
