Children's Corner Day Care Center
89 Washington Avenue,
Starting at $221/wk
Children's Corner Day Care Center provides care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years. We provide a 10% discount for siblings. Tuition fees vary according to age group and based upon the market rate. As of Summer 2012 we are now offering a Summer Program for children age 6-10.
Our Center serves a diverse group of children and families and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability. The Center provides an opportunity for children with disabilities to interact with typically developing children in a quality inclusive setting. Parents/guardians are encouraged to visit the Center prior to and/or during the enrollment of their child (ren). We also encourage parents to visit the center with their child once or twice, for at least one to two hours each visit, before the child begins full time.
The children are provided with many rich and challenging experiences in classrooms that are organized into clearly defined learning areas, such as, books, blocks, dramatic play, art, music, and manipulative toys. The daily program consists of a balance of individual, small and large group activities; physical care routines; breakfast, hot lunch and snacks; nap/quiet time; and various indoor and outdoor activities.
As of 9/07 the Center has been approved for the Universal Prekindergarten Program (UPK). The Center provides a 'wrap-around' program for children participating in our UPK program. Universal Pre-Kindergarten is a community-based program under the umbrella of the Albany City School District. The program is based on a literacy curriculum focusing on pre-reading, writing skills and math concepts. The program also includes the exploration of bilingual languages and curriculum.
Children's Corner is located in downtown Albany, in the NYS Education Department Building Annex, so if you work in the downtown area you have convenience of having your child/ren within walking distance of your place of work for visiting any time. Our Center provides daily breakfast, hot lunch and snacks. We have a large gross motor room for indoor play as well as a fenced-in playground located directly across from the Center for outdoor play and a weekly music program.
Our Center is a Not-For-Profit organization and is licensed thru the Office of Children and Family Services.
