The Mickey Sands Child Care Center is excited to open its doors and serve the Canandaigua community.
Children are cared for in a warm and nurturing environment where they will receive early learning, intervention and educational services. These services are designed to improve the child’s cognitive, social, emotional, early literacy, fine and gross motor skills.
Classrooms will have established routines and schedules. Nutritious meals will be provided for breakfast, lunch and snacks.
All staff go through a rigorous hiring process to ensure all meet the qualifications of the YMCA and the Office of Children and Family Services. Staff will receive ongoing training to promote professional development that addresses the education, growth, and development of children.
All families enrolled at the Mickey Sands Child Care Center will receive a FREE Sands Family YMCA Membership.
Between February 10, 2023 and June 9, 2023, parents/guardians need to fill out our pre-registration form for their child to be enrolled and email it to SandsChildcare@RochesterYMCA.org or bring it to the Canandaigua Family YMCA at 32 North Main Street. It is a first-come first-served basis. If our classroom is full, your child will be put on the waiting list.
