Precious Kids Country Learning and Development Center has been caring for children and their needs for over 15 years. This gives us many years of experience and a unique perspective in understanding the importance of quality childcare. We at, PKC believe that our program and services offer developmentally appropriate curriculum and we strive to enhance social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth in young children. Our program fosters curiosity, creativity and self-esteem by taking into account children’s abilities and interests. Child initiated and teacher supported play is an essential component of our success.

Our Philosophy:


   “Quality child care is a right, not a privilege.”

    “Early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration and discovery.”

    “Children should learn not only through structured and formal instruction times, but, in their

     play time as well. We, therefore, insure that all activities are aimed at this ideal.”

    “Learning occurs in an inquiring, cooperative, nurturing atmosphere. Students increase their

    own knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences.”

    “Learning takes place through the senses. Students learn by manipulating materials and interacting

    with others. These meaningful experiences are precursors to the abstract understanding of



    “Respect and caring attitudes for oneself, others, the environment, and all life are necessary.”

    “Childcare professionals should always maintain a sense of humor.”

Our Standards:

Our staff is composed of highly qualified, dedicated childcare professionals. The staff meets New York State Licensing requirements and many teachers have advanced degrees and/or related educational experience.  From September through June, PKC employs a whole language program as well as thematic units. 

Placement of Child:

We, at Precious Kids Country recognize each child as a unique individual. Classrooms are divided into age groups.  Children will advance according to chronological and developmental levels.
