Take a look at what the kids in our Easton School Age Site have been up to!

Time spent in our centers fosters a love of learning in our children.  An important part of our program is our innovative, literature-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) projects.  These fun and engaging activities teach our children about the world around them, encourage them to work together to solve problems, and challenge them to think critically – all through play.  Scroll down to learn more about our exceptional, enriching programming!

Upon entering CACC classrooms, children discover warm, engaging, nurturing, and educational environments. Our goals are:

Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers are licensed and accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education’s (MSDE) Office of Child Care, and all five sites have achieved an MSDE Maryland EXCELS (Excellence Counts in Early Learning and School Age Care) Check Level 5 Rating. EXCELS Check Level 5 is the highest possible rating awarded to childcare providers and is based on nationally recognized quality standards and best practices. Accreditation and EXCELS ratings, unlike licensing, are not required for childcare centers. They are voluntary review processes and are only awarded to childcare programs that substantially exceed state licensing requirements. Proudly, Critchlow has achieved this or similar levels of excellence for over 30 years.

Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage in and learn about the world around them.

Critchlow Adkins plans a thoughtfully designed menu.  Children are provided with a balanced and nutritious breakfast, lunch supplement (milk and fruits or vegetables), and an afternoon snack.

Children in Critchlow’s before-care programs receive a nutritious breakfast so they start the day fueled up and ready to learn. Time permitting, students may receive last minute homework assistance, visit with friends, or play games.

Children in Critchlow’s after-care programs receive a nutritious snack, homework assistance, and have the opportunity to enjoy one of our innovative literature-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) activities. 

When not designing their next great inventions, students might learn how to knit, tend their gardens, play a rousing game of kick-ball, or relax with friends.

Critchlow’s literature-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) activities spark children’s imaginations, help them to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills, and encourage a lifelong love of learning.

Our innovative STEAM projects are developed by our Program and Outreach Specialist, Amy Michaels.  Amy tailors the activities for each age group, and works with Critchlow teachers to implement them with our students.  For example, a teacher might read Ruby’s Red Fort and then challenge students to build a fort for a doll with blankets and blocks.

Critchlow’s themed summer camps are a hit with campers of all ages.  One week children might be pirates looking for a buried treasure, and another they might be making a delicious pizza.  Each week campers create crafts, play music, enjoy outdoor fun, and go on a fun-filled field trip.
