Why ChooSE

Our School

  1. Our exemplary Food Program
  2. open door policy
  3. Development based on the individual



Cradle and Crayon Inc was opened in 1990 to serve the needs of the CRREL/DoD community and Upper Valley residents.


The Center is organized into developmentally appropriate programs.  Children progress through the developmental stages at their own individual pace. It is our goal to match environments and planned program experiences to the needs of each individual child.  We will support the interests and abilities of each child and will not force or rush children.  Children's play is work.  Through play they process the events and experiences of their lives and sort out their own meanings.


Our Center has an open door policy—you are welcome to come and visit your child at any point during the day


We provide a safe and nurturing environment that contributes favorably to the growth and development of children.


Cradle and Crayon Inc is certified annually by the U.S. Army, Department of Defense, is licensed by the State of New Hampshire and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
