CHILD CARE CENTER

The Cayuga Community College Child Care Center infuses a quality early learning experience with child care.

The Cayuga Community College Child Care Center is sponsored by the Faculty Student Association and licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services. We are located on the Auburn Campus (197 Franklin St. Auburn, NY 13021). Our infants and toddlers are located in the Thomas F. Steenburgh Nature Center building, and our preschool aged children are located in the lower level of the library building.

Beginning August 2016 we will be offering NEW HOURS from 6am -5:45pm. We will also be offering NEW AGES from 6 weeks to 12 years.

We will have children ages 6 weeks–42 months in the new facility, which is currently the nature center building. We will have children ages 3–12 years in our current space in the basement of the Library building. This will include school-age children from the Auburn School District who will be bused to the various schools within the district. We will have 2 UPK classrooms.

We accept most subsidies and students of Cayuga have the opportunity to qualify for the SUNY Block grant and can get their childcare for as little as $15/week depending on income and class schedule.

Rates will be determined by mid-June. For more information please contact Kim Cuipylo at 315-294-8603 or kimberly.cuipylo@cayuga-cc.edu.
