Cradle & Crayon, Inc. (CCI) operates an independent Child Development Center in Hanover, New Hampshire next to the COOP on Lyme Road. We provide child development services to members of the local community in the Upper Valley. CCI is a non-profit corporation, founded and controlled by a membership consisting of parents of the Center. The Center offers full time day care for children between the ages of six weeks and six years.

​The Center provides a safe and nurturing environment that contributes favorably to the growth and development of children. The Center strives to meet or exceed the expectations of our parents.  The Center holds a New Hampshire Child Care Program License. We are also pursuing accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) – a standard that few area centers pursue due to the extensive application and review process. This includes strict requirements for staff qualifications and training, environment, management, and curriculum, all with the ultimate objective to provide the best support for our children’s learning and development.
