Our Children’s Place of Canandaigua Director


Cathy Canarvis

Early Childhood Education seems to be my calling in life. While a teenager in Long Island, I attended BOCES Vocational Training in Child Care, this helped make my decision to attend college for my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood, later I received my Masters in Literacy Education from Nazareth College.

I worked at Genesee Hospital Child Care Center for 15 years, as a pre-kindergarten and kindergarten teacher. When Genesee Hospital closed, I was offered the position of Director working for CCDP and have been working for CCDP since 2001.

My philosophy is that childhood is a journey, not a race. I believe that all children are individuals and learn at their own pace. We need to provide a physical environment that encourages hands on activities. Children should engage in active learning in small groups. Make learning fun and exciting and set up the environment so that each child can celebrate their own success.
