"Cradles to Crayons is a home away from home for our two girls. Finding a group of people to teach and play with your children while you have to work is a very hard decision and I can honestly say that we have never questioned our choice in choosing C2C. The wonderful people who work there have played a huge part in raising our girls into the loving, smart, playful, well rounded little people we cherish. Our eldest, who is now in kindergarten started learning and playing at C2C in January of 2012, she was a year and half. I cannot stress how grateful I am to all that she has learned. On appearance the center is play based, however she knew her phonics, counting to 20, how to spell her name at 3, write her name at 4, plus a wealth of additional knowledge on why things are and how things work. Upon entering Kindergarten she was beyond prepared and I can give the majority of that credit to the great staff and curriculum at C2C. Now when she goes to pick up her little sister she runs from room to room to give hugs and tell her stories to teachers who have touched her life from such a young age. Our youngest, who began with C2C at 6 months, is following in the same foot steps as her sister, even if it is too a completely different tune!! She has had some difficulty with speech and the teachers are great at working with her, upon my request, to correct her and use cues to enhance her abilities. She loves to come home and share things she has learned throughout her day; like the games they played, the science projects they did and show us all the arts and crafts she got to do. Our children are better and more prepared for school thanks to the experiences they have enjoyed at C2C!"
