Visit us to find out more about our program.



Located in the heart of the community, Hammondsport Children’s Center provides high quality, affordable child care and early learning opportunities. A place where small children learn and grow, and a dynamic resource for parents.  

Children are supported in their social and emotional development and learn the important skills of sharing, waiting, persistence, self-confidence and more. We create a nurturing environment in a happy and calm climate, one that will foster healthy development of minds, bodies, hearts and souls. 


Every child has an individualized plan which helps caregivers tune into their developmental stage and facilitate experiences which challenge and excite new learners. 



Our Program

Project Play
During Project Play we will start a project and stay involved in it through the natural end of the process. For example, setting up a grocery store and learning to shop, build a check-out counter and take turns ringing up the food.
Yes, that’s right! Even the babies have a “course of study”. Infants are included in all of the daily activities however their individual schedules for eating and sleeping will be honored. 
Science is all around us! We help children identify principles of physics, chemistry, mathematics and more. We bring nature into the classroom and help children form and test hypotheses. 
Arts & Crafts
Children of all ages appreciate beautiful form and color. Even our infants experiment with art and craft projects. We sculpt, draw, build and paint. We focus on the process of creating, rather than making a specific product.
Music & Dance  
Music and dance happen everyday. We listen, sing along and create our own music. We dance and exercise and move!

Parent Testimonials

My daughter has been attending Hammondsport Children's Center for the last 4 months. Throughout this time I have seen a lot of growth in her mentally and physically. Miss Evelyn's friendly, nurturing and professional manner helped make this a smooth transition. I value the daily routines that provide structure for my daughter. Overall, I appreciate the flexible schedule and daily follow ups about my daughters day.

As new parents, my wife and I were hesitant to send our 10 month old daughter to day care. Hammondsport Children's Center has provided a safe and educational option for child care. Evelyn and her staff always provide daily feedback with activities, meals and and any additional requests by us as parents. Evelyn has always been accommodating with schedule changes which has helped with last minute needs.
