Crayons Early Care & Education Center Inc. has been established to provide young children and their families with a nurturing and stimulating environment. It is our hope to develop a partnership with families in providing appropriate play experiences that support, assess and respond to each child's individual development across nine learning domains: Physical Health and Motor Development, Social and Emotional Development, Language Development, Literacy, Cognitive Development, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Creative Arts.
All children are unique individuals whose experiences, abilities and needs are valued and respected. Crayons endeavors to be responsive to each individual by providing a caring atmosphere and a curriculum that fosters trust, autonomy, initiative and creativity.
ACCREDITATION & LICENSING
You have chosen a program for your child that is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. NAEYC administers the largest and most widely recognized accreditation system for all types of early learning programs and is the nation's largest organization of early childhood educators. In achieving accreditation, our program has demonstrated the ability to meet national standards of quality that go well beyond state health and safety licensing requirements. The NAEYC Accreditation criteria address all aspects of an early childhood education program, including:
- Teacher qualifications and development
- Teacher-to-child ratios
- Teacher/child and teacher/family relationships
- Physical environment
