Sixth Ct., Fort Lauderdale, Fla. After schoolers times are from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Students will receive homework assistance and age appropriate activities. Field trips are planned on days the public school is closed. For more in-formation call (954) 701-0244. There is no registration fee. There are income-based subsidized programs available to assist parents who qualify. Cradle Learning Center also offers the free Voluntary Pre-kindergarten (VPK) for four-year-olds. Voluntary Pre-kindergarten is a program that began in Florida in 2005. The program provides funding for four-year-olds to attend pre-kindergarten in order to better prepare them for kindergarten. The VPK program is free for all eligible age children. Our free VPK program starts on Monday, Aug. 21, from 8 to 11 a.m. An educational field trip will be part of the VPK program.
We also encourage new Community Providers to con-tact us to provide for our parents and community at large relevant workshops. We have a well-educated and professional staff and teachers ready and willing to provide the time needed to nurture the minds of our children. Countless numbers of children who attended Cradle during their formative years are now making their mark in the political, educational, medical, judicial, various trades/vocations and other professions. Susie C. Holley Cradle Nursery, Inc., now Cradle Learning Center, is one of Southeast Florida’s oldest African American owned, non-profit child care facilities. The school has recently been revitalized and re-opened but with a modern twist.
