We are committed to providing superior child care and education in a nurturing, caring, supportive and fun environment. We emphasize the development of the whole child, including their social, emotional, language, intellectual, and physical development. Our founding principles include the belief that young children learn best through play. Learning experiences are age appropriate and developmentally balanced through child initiated and teacher directed activities.
Program Hours and Calendar
Yorktown Child Care Center is open Monday through Friday, from 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM (with no extra fees if you utilize our early and late hours). Our program runs on a corporate calendar, which means that we stay open throughout the summer and winter/spring breaks, and we do not close for snow days (unless a State of Emergency is declared). Our continuous schedule and early/late hours, plus the fact that we serve the children a hot breakfast and lunch, makes our program ideal for working parents.
Our rates are all-inclusive for the full day, from 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM—there are no extra fees when you utilize our early and late hours. Our rates also include baby food, cereals, hot breakfasts and lunches as well as nutritious snacks throughout the day.
An Open Door Policy for Parents
Parents are our partners and we encourage their input. We welcome them to drop in to observe at any time with or without an appointment and invite their participation in ways in which they feel comfortable. This can mean reading a story, sharing a hobby, or simply sitting in during an activity.
Daily written information keeps parents informed of their child’s progress and actual Progress Reports are completed twice a year for each child. Parents are welcome to request a Parent/Teacher Conference at any time.
