Kidz Korner — to provide the opportunities for children to build self-esteem, self-confidence, and positive relationships.

Welcome to Kidz Korner Childcare Learning Center

     Our program is designed to provide the opportunities for children to build self-esteem, self-confidence, and positive relationships. Our goal is to provide all of the children in our care with a clean, safe, comfortable, loving environment where they can play and learn. Our approach to teaching can be described as a sharing of knowledge between child and an adult, in a hands-on, child-directed atmosphere. Kidz Korner provides a high quality early childhood program where the children are active learners in both a structured and unstructured setting. The teachers develop learning experiences and ask questions that encourage children to think and problem solve. They nurture and develop the social, emotional, physical and intellectual stages of each child.

The children are encouraged through every stage of their development to play, question, think for themselves, verbalize their feelings, foster positive relationships with their peers and teachers, problem solve, explore and through all of this develop a lifelong love of learning.  We see benefits in both structured curriculum and unstructured learning that encourages creative thinking. Our aim is to nurture each child as an individual to develop social, emotional, physical and intellectual knowledge that will provide a foundation to last a lifetime.

Our team of educators and child care professionals welcome you and your children to Kidz Korner Child Care Learning Center. We offer convenient locations in Guilderland, Colonie/Niskayuna and Latham, NY.

In addition to our child care and educational opportunities, we offer an After School program at our Guilderland location. Our services are available to children of a wide range of ages, including infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and Pre-Kindergartners.  In addition to these programs we also offer Summer Camp for school-age children to explore games, arts and crafts and field trips at our Guilderland location.

Visit a Kidz Korner Child Care Learning Center to observe our staff interacting with children in our positive, caring environment. Our competitive rates and child-directed educational programs can benefit your little one in many positive ways. We'll earn your trust and exceed your expectations with our caring environment.

We're open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Contact us to discuss our programs, schedule a visit and explore the best options for your child's development and care.
