The cornerstone of the Crayons program is our inclusive model. We believe that children of all abilities should have the opportunity to participate within a quality, community-based early care and education program regardless of their strengths, needs and/or challenges. As such, Crayons is dedicated to providing or accessing the appropriate services required to allow all children to be successful within the program.

Our unique team of professionals includes a diverse group of individuals consisting of early childhood and special educators, teacher assistants, therapists, clinicians, integration specialists and registered nurses. Our model allows for built in consult services for any child that we feel may need them. Our staff is dedicated in assisting families in accessing appropriate services for their child as needed. These services may include mental health or behavioral supports, special education, speech, occupational or physical therapy or skilled nursing services. Additional clinical supports are also available for children who may require them.



Crayons is a certified provider of KIDSCONNECT, or therapeutic child care under the Rhode Island Department of Human Services. This service is for children and youth with special health care needs and allows students additional clinical and therapeutic supports within child and youth care settings. To learn more about the program and whether or not your child is eligible for these services, parents can visit the RI Department of Human Services website at
