Since 1985 the Genesis Center has been providing affordable, professional childcare.  The Center is licensed to serve 32 infants and toddlers and 42 children ages three to five years old. We care for children of all abilities and all income levels. The Genesis Childcare Center is part of the Children’s Network Comprehensive Services Program. Through this program, services, including case management, mental health, dental care and educational programs are provided at no cost to eligible preschool children.

Childcare Philosophy

At Genesis Childcare Center, we believe that a well-balanced, play-based curriculum increases positive self-image and encourages a feeling of accomplishment and self-worth. We believe that emotional and social interactions with peers and teachers help children learn and develop self-control, self-direction and independence. We believe that offering various activities and learning situations helps children learn individual respect for cultural differences and community awareness.

Who is Eligible?

The Genesis Childcare Center provides childcare for children of all abilities and income levels. We work with a variety of community service agencies, including Early Intervention programs, school departments, private agencies and individuals who would like to sponsor a child.
