Learning through Play

More than any other child care center, Cradle to Crayons, promotes the role of play in a child’s development because it teaches children the joy of learning. Children learn best by doing, and what they do best is play

School Age Care

Research shows that children who participate in after school programs are more successful in academics, are healthier, and help maintain positive behaviors. We believe every child is full of promise and possibilities! When a child realizes it – priceless!

Toys and Games

Mindful of the basic principles of child development, toys and play naturally provide opportunities for practicing different thinking skills, such as imitation, cause and effect, problem solving, and symbolic thinking
