Crayon College at Plymouth has recently received two business loans from The South Eastern Economic Development (SEED) Corporation totaling $130,000. The financing provided the daycare, located at 109 South Meadow Road, with working capital and will enable the creation of two new jobs. The SEED lender for the project was Angela Laperriere.
“We are extremely satisfied with the streamlined process of getting our loan approval from SEED Corporation,” stated Lucinda Morgan, co-owner of Crayon College. “We have worked together in the past and our experiences have always been positive. SEED has been a major contributor to our success.”
Established in 2007, Crayon College at Plymouth is a full-service daycare offering infant, toddler, and pre-school programs. Co-owners Lucinda and Kristin have created a unique curriculum that encourages socialization, language acquisition, and development of small and large motor skills. With smaller-than-average class sizes, Crayon College facilitates comfortable interaction between children in a non-judgmental environment which helps boost self-image.
Prices are determined based on age, however Crayon College does offer discounts for families with multiple children enrolled. The daycare offers services two to five days per week from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, and is open year round. For more information, visit their website at www.crayoncollege.us.
