The priority of the Child Development Center at Clinton Community College is to serve the child care needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Clinton Community College. Additionally, the center is available for the use of community members. The Center does this by providing programs for children ranging in age from 18 months through 5 years of age, thus enabling Clinton students and employee parents the opportunity to work and study while providing the finest quality early childhood experience for their children. Students in child/ education related fields of study may use the Center to make observations, complete assignments, and acquaint themselves of the resources on site.
The entire staff receives annual training through the State University of New York (SUNY)
Child Care Conference.
All of the meals at the Center meet the nutritional requirements of the Child Care Food Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Meals are included in tuition fees.
Our Goals are to enhance each child's total growth by:
Developing the child's sense of autonomy, self-confidence and competence.
Providing a wide range of age/developmentally appropriate experiences to foster learning, creativity, and problem solving in all areas - language, science, mathematics, music, art, gross and fine motor, health and safety.
Encouraging the child's natural curiosity in the world around him/her, to seek new knowledge, to explore, to handle, and to question.
Developing a sense of belonging to a community, sharing, and caring about each other, yet being a unique individual who feels that "I am OK."
Developing a safe and healthy trust in peers/adults beyond family.
Encouraging and supporting parents.
Providing a well qualified and caring staff.
Providing a safe and nurturing learning atmosphere throughout the Child Development Center.
