Programs

At Cradle 2 Crayons, Inc. in Foley every child matters! We derive our monthly themes, concepts and related activities from the High Reach curriculum for the 2's and K-3 classes. We develop lesson plans for each classroom based on the needs discovered through our students’ assessments. We choose activities from the High Reach curriculum that encourage individual skills development. We use the High Scope approach to classroom management. Our K-4 preschool class will learn from the Funshine  Express Curriculum.  Daily schedules will vary by age group. Each classroom will have a daily schedule posted in the room. We assign children to classrooms based on their ages and the Alabama childcare regulations. Cradle 2 Crayons always follows the state guidelines for child to staff ratios. Most age groups will nap between 12- 2pm. There is no set schedule for infants on napping. Parents of every child of walking age and up will be required to provide a cloth nap mat. Cradle 2 Crayons will charge an annual supply fee in September for educational supplies. Parents are responsible for maintaining adequate personal care supplies for us to care for your child. Informal parent/ teacher conferences are available at any time. Parents are encouraged to attend all conference requests. Failure to attend a requested conference may result in dismissal from the program.

We will be happy to help your child celebrate his or her birthday or special holiday so long as the parent provides all necessary supplies. Any parties held will be at 2:00 p.m., during snack time.
 
Cradle 2 Crayons will host a graduation ceremony for those children entering Kindergarten in the fall. Graduation is generally the 3rd week of May. Graduation is not mandatory, but you are required to notify the office if your child will not be participating in the program. Those children with behavioral problems may not be allowed to participate without parental assistance.
