~We are open. We have limited space in our program. Please call 585-385-2360 to set up a tour.
~With PCSD using a hybrid learning model this school year, we are here to help support your child at FCCNS. We have hired Ms Ryan a retired teacher to help us provide support for remote learning. She will be here in the mornings 5 days per week. Of course MB and Amy will also be here full time to help in any way they can. We have a separate area for students that need to be online for classes at any given time. The expectation is that students will bring in their own fully charged lap top and headphones to use for remote learning here at the center. If you have any specific needs or questions, please reach out to us.

~We hope you will join FCCNS in supporting our local families and the Ronald McDonald House by simply collecting soda tabs, soup tab, etc. There are also "houses" in each classroom and in the office. It is a very easy way to give back to our community and helping families who's children are receiving medical care. This program will run all year long and each tab counts! Thanks so much for your support!

including the facilities, qualifications of staff and leadership, and record

The goal of a
Pathways Accreditation is to help ensure that children receive the benefits of
appropriate, joyful experiences and are cared for in a safe, high quality early
