Why Choose Us

CNCC is committed to providing your child with a developmentally sound program that is consistently of the highest quality.  Our Center is Accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Program.  Parents are encouraged to participate in all facets of our Center from daily communication with your child's caregiver, to serving on our Board of Directors. 
 
We offer a safe, happy environment for your children to learn and grow.  We have large play areas, both inside and out.  We are open Monday through Friday, from 6:30 am - 6:00 pm.  We supply breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack, and have a contract with the Child Care and Adult Food Program for the nutritious meals we serve.
 
The order of admission to our Center is first-come-first-served, modified with the needs of the program.  Parents whose children are already enrolled have priority for siblings.  Prospective enrollees can call to schedule a tour of our facility.  Tours are by appointment only, and are necessary before enrollment is considered.
 
History
 
County North Children’s Center, Inc. was founded in 1972 as West Genesee Children’s Center.  The Center was developed by a group of schoolteachers and community members who wanted a safe, healthy learning environment for their children.
 
Recognizing the growth of young families in the Northern suburbs of Syracuse and the lack of child care there, the Center moved to Liverpool in 1980.  We changed its name to County North Children’s Center.  For five years, it operated sites in Liverpool as well as Radisson providing care to many children and families.
 
Needing a larger facility, CNCC moved to the Town of Salina building in November 1984.  The Town building is a former elementary school, renovated for community use.  Now renting 9 large classrooms and office space from the Town of Salina, CNCC serves over 80 families annually from the Salina-Clay-Baldwinsville area.  We remain the only non-profit childcare center in this area.
 
In 1992, the Board and Directors made a commitment to achieve Accreditation from the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs.  We solicited the necessary materials, and started the detailed self-assessment process.  We received our first Accreditation in 1996, and have maintained accreditation since then. In May 2001, we were re-accredited with the new NAEYC standards and guidelines.  NAEYC Accreditation meets a national standard of staff-child interaction, health and safety standards.
 
We are pleased that we have been able to provide over thirty wonderful years of care in our community.
