Thank you for 13 years of exceptional educational support for 6 of my 7 children

My daughter is well prepared for Kindergarten. Some new skills took me by surprise. It has been a great experience.

I feel comfortable leaving my daughter in your care

I have no question when I drop off my son that he will be o.k. and well taken care of in my absence.

I really appreciate CCC, particularly the flexibility needed to keep pace with families ever-changing schedules.

Our Philosophy

Crafton Children's Corner is a lot of things because children need a lot of different things. First of all, when children come to us they are leaving the safe and secure place you have provided for them. That can be pretty scary.

Children need to know they are important individuals with some pretty significant things to do and say. As individuals children need to learn that not only are they capable of working and playing with other children, but that closeness and sharing are rewarding experiences.

Children need to be able to explore what is around them, and to learn about the world in ways best suited to their own unique imaginations.

Crafton Children's Corner is committed to providing all of these experiences for children. We offer a nurturing and stimulating environment which supports and encourages them in their efforts to learn about themselves and the world around them. They can grow, and learn that growing up to be who they can, and want to be, isn't can be a lot of FUN!
