Offering Developmentally Appropriate Childcare & Education in a Safe & Nurturing Environment Since 1979 from Infants to Pre-k
Early Childhood Center Serving the Shoreline
Cradles to Crayons is a private early childhood center that has been serving the shoreline since 1979. Our center offers a child-centered approach to learning, and our home-like atmosphere demonstrates our value of family and community. At Cradles to Crayons, we welcome family involvement and input.
We also believe that each child has something valuable to contribute to the community. Our teaching staff is committed to providing a quality program that is based on individual needs and interests.
The overriding philosophy at Cradles to Crayons is that all children are special and unique. Each child has his/her own individual rate of growth and his/her own distinctive pattern of acquiring skills and competencies. The most important educators of a young child are his/her parents and family. Cradles to Crayons can assist parents and families in this role by providing a child with optimal learning experiences and by providing families with appropriate development information.
At Cradles to Crayons, we do not concentrate on only one educational philosophical approach to learning; instead, we incorporate different educational philosophies throughout a day to maximize what children are taught and how children learn. Our goal is to facilitate positive social, physical, cognitive, and aesthetic developmental outcomes for each child. We hope to accomplish this result through our program, environment, curriculum, and staff.
