When we moved to Canandaigua a little over a year ago, Our Children’s Place was the first and only placed we interviewed for a place to bring our daughter three days per week. We immediately felt welcomed. The layout and cleanliness of the daycare was a priority for us, and Our Children’s Place me our high standards. We now have two children who both attend daycare part-time. The staff at the center is extremely friendly and interactive with both the children and parents. There has been very little turnover since we’ve been attending, which is very important to us and our kids who thrive on consistency. It is sad that we have to leave our kids to go to work, but when we drop them off, we know they are in good hands. We always wanted a daycare that would enjoy our children as much as we do when we’re away, and I think our girls’ teachers do! We also love all of the family events that OCP plans thorough the year.

OCP is more than a daycare to my child, it is a second home. The staff at OCP really cares about each and every child and is in tune with every family enrolled there. I can go to work with full confidence that my daughter is in a caring, safe, educational, and fun environment. Thanks OCP!

1) Convenience- very close to my work. I can stop by to visit for lunch, or be there immediately if anything were to happen.

2) The most important- the staff/everyone is extremely kind and friendly with the kids best interests in mind. I love that there is very low staff turnover and the parent can actually develop a relationship with the teacher/aide. It is beneficial for the kids as well. When recommending OCP, this is the first thing I tell parents.

3) Cost- Of course! – Much cheaper than most places I took my kids.

4) Programs- I love that field trips are offered.

5) Healthy lunches.

OCP of Canandaigua has provided excellent care for my son. I’ve watched him grow from a shy 3 year old into a confident and outgoing 4 year old, much of which can be attributed to his teachers at OCP. They really encouraged him to become more independent, especially with potty training! The environment at OCP is warm and friendly, the teachers are very approachable and knowledgeable and all the staff seem to take an interest in the kids.

I would highly recommend OCP to my friends and family and encourage anyone researching child care options to come in and visit.

The variety of educational and fun activities at CCDP is great – but what we like best is the nurturing the kids receive from the staff. The children are greeted with smiles and hugs every day. We credit all of the staff with teaching our children social skills and preparing them for grade school. We have recommended CCDP to co-workers and friends and would encourage anyone who is interested to observe a classroom in action! They will see for themselves what a great place CCDP is. They will not leave disappointed.

OCP has been a wonderful place for my daughter to play, learn and imagine during the day. She looks forward to going in the morning and many times I have to work at getting her to leave. As a parent, it can be anxiety-producing to look for a good daycare. I can tell you that OCP has a wonderful staff that I trust completely. I feel comfortable leaving my daughter there while I go to work.

Our children are physically and emotionally thriving at OCP. They are challenged with stimulating activities and nurtured on a daily basis. The faculty and staff are very approachable and communicate well with us. We are very happy with the care and guidance that are provided to our children.

We have attended CCDP since 2010. I have a 4 year old and a 21 month old at OCP of Canandaigua. The staff here is wonderful and I know my children are in good hands.

We love Our Children’s Place! Out first experience with the center was when our son Jackson came here when he was 2. We were so impressed with the staff and teachers. He learned so much and it has made him who he is today in first grade. We decided on this center again for the UPK program for our 4 year old. Jackson had gone to the school’s UPK program, but I just didn’t feel a connection. The connection with the teachers at the center have with the kids is so heartwarming to see. Ryder comes home everyday saying what a great day he had with Miss Debbie and Miss Patty, and Mr. Kevin in the afternoons. The center has changed our lives by making our children happier to learn and grow. Thank you!

This is JaQuan’s second home. He’s loved, nurtured and is so happy here. He’s here forever!

My Husband and I both have very rewarding, but also demanding professions, and no extended family around to help with our two children. We would not have been able to keep working full time and be worry free about our children’s safety and well being if we had not found the Early Childhood Center (now Our Children’s Place). When we first started looking for a day care/pre school for our first son, we visited a few places and we left thinking, we would never have left our child there. We felt blessed when we found this center. We can describe it as the second best place for our children to be after their own home. My Husband and I are grateful for almost 6 years of support and help with both our sons. We will miss the people and the warm daily welcome when our youngest son will move on to Kindergarten.
