Unique to Crayons 2 Pencils Early Learning Center
Looping Classrooms: At Crayons 2 Pencils we understand the importance of children creating a bond with children in their classroom. All children are placed with the children they are potentially going to attend Kindergarten with. Children move once per year to their new classroom. We keep them with the peers they are going to go to Elementary School.
Parents: We know parents would rather stay home and play with their kids then send them to daycare but it is not always an option. We want to make their new place their home away from home where they are loved and well cared for. We also want to keep you in the loop on the day to day. I feel it is important to share pictures weekly to keep you engaged in your child's environment while you are away. You the parent are just as much a part of our program as your child is.
Meals- Unless I learn from DHS that I cannot provide this option, we want parents to be able to provide a sack lunch for their children if they want too. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack are always provided. Sack lunch is just if your child would like to have that instead.
