Description: Our New York State licensed child care programs employ professional staff to oversee activities designed to tap every aspect of a child's capabilities and potential - on all plains: social, emotional, intellectual and physical. Our services are grouped according to age and development and our programs provide an atmosphere of love, trust and understanding. The individualized needs of each child are paramount in all services delivered and parents are invited to participate in activities and meetings. Breakfast, lunch and snacks - all under USDA guidelines - are provided for all children ages 1 through 12.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
