BIRTH TO FIVE

 

About Us

Basic Training:  From Cradle to Commander (formerly known as Cradle School) is a free, school readiness program for parents and their children, ages birth to 5.  The two-hour monthly program offers developmentally appropriate enrichment activities, parent skill building lessons, and socialization.
