We at PKC offer programs for ages 6 weeks through pre-k. Each classroom provides an

environment that is safe yet stimulating, and a curriculum that challenges them through creativity, self choice, and learning through play. We believe that educators are important role models. Therefore, we use modeling as a vital tool in our classrooms. To maintain an atmosphere where children feel comfortable and confident, we use constructive guidance and positive reinforcement. We feel it is also necessary to establish and clearly define reasonable limits with logical consequences.


From September - June:


During the normal school year our center is open Monday - Friday from 7:00 am to 6:00pm except major holidays.  Each day Breakfast, Lunch and 2 snacks are prepared on the premises except for “Pizza Friday”.  The classroom environment is carefully designed to reflect the children’s interests and to cultivate positive self-image, independence, and interdependence. We provide classrooms specifically for the following ages...


Infants (6 weeks - 12 months)

Waddlers (12 months - 24 months)

Toddlers (24 months - 36 months)

Nursery School (3 years old)

Pre-K (4 years old)


Every classroom meets the NYSOCFS requirements for teacher to student ratio.


From July - August:


During the summer months PKC offers a special summer camp program in addition to our normal care. Camp includes special activities, crafts, a petting zoo, bounce house, carnival, as well as many other exciting things all done right on location.
