Day Care

The Columbia-Greene Community College Day Care Center offers a program designed to stimulate cognitive development, as well as social/emotional growth. The center is available to children ranging in age from 3 years through 5 years. While the center is available to all college and college related personnel, as well as Community when space is available, first priority will be given to the children of students. The center accommodates the children while their parents are attending classes, pursuing a college related activity or working. While the children do not necessarily come to school every day, your contract will be billed for a minimum of three hours each day they are scheduled to attend. If the child is brought to school for only three hours each day it is strongly recommended that she/he come to the center at least twice a week. Afternoon children must be in the center by 12:30.

Hours of Operation and Contact Information:

The Day Care Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, in accordance with the college schedule.
