Columbia Children's Center is licensed by New York State Office of Children and Family Services. The center operates every week of the year. We are licensed by New York State Department of Health and serve breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack, all prepared by our cook on site. There are six classrooms for children six weeks to five years of age. Each classroom has two educated, experienced teachers and follows a developmentally appropriate curriculum including daily outdoor play.
We are dedicated to provide the best child care for all of our children in a developmentally appropriate way.
All staff are required to complete 30 hours of training and continuing education every two years as compliant with NYS regulations.
Each classroom is run by a lead teacher along with a full-time assistant teacher. Each wing also has part-time staff readily available.
All staff have gone through a complete background check and fingerprinting by NYS.
We intend to educate our children in all aspects of development in a caring, loving, play-centered environment according to the most current research. We provide an inclusive program accepting of all races, religions, ethnicities, and lifestyles.
We have a long standing, positive relationship with those in our community and strong reputation.
Celebrating over 40 years of committed, quality care!
