The Canton Day Care Center is a nonprofit, community-based child care program for 8 week old infants to school age children up to 12 years old in a safe, healthy, and positive learning environment licensed by New York State.
The Canton Day Care Center strives to provide a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment that allows children to grow, discover, and learn through a variety of age and developmentally appropriate experiences. Our philosophy is to encourage the whole child to develop in a positive atmosphere of warmth and caring. Our goal is to meet the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs that are unique to each child. In their daily experiences with our staff, the children learn to make decisions, to carry out responsibilities, to express themselves creatively, and to discover friendships. They are exposed to music, movement, art, science, reading, dramatic play, life skills, sensory experiences, and fine and gross motor play. Themes are planned around the interests of each group of children. A daily schedule helps to provide a familiar flow to each day, and balances active and quiet play with child-initiated and teacher-directed activities. We strive to achieve our childcare goals through the partnership of child, parent, school, community, and staff.
