Schoharie County 2016 Business Partner

Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center

 

 

The FMS Workforce Development Board is proud to announce the Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center as their Schoharie County 2016 Business Partner of the Year. Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center is located on 189 West Main Street, Cobleskill, NY.

 

The Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center provides child care to SUNY Cobleskill students, staff, and faculty, as well as the local community.  They offer a developmentally based program designed to enhance the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development of young children.  Curriculums are designed to focus on meeting children’s individual needs. The process identifies children’s abilities, needs, developmental levels and learning styles.  “The teacher is then the facilitator who guides children and works beside them on a learning journey” to build children’s self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning, all in a stimulating and challenging environment.

 

Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to visit the Center to observe/participate in the program or communicate with the staff, who always do their best to ensure that the family’s experiences at the Campus Child Care Center are happy, healthy, and educational.

 

The Center has been working with the Workforce Solutions System and local young people by participating in the Summer Youth Employment Program consistently for more than five years as a Summer Youth worksite. They help youth gain vital work experience and they have hired youth after the summer program. The Center currently has one full time staff who has been there since 2011 when hired after completing the youth program.  They also have a part time staff who was on last year’s summer program and is also attending the college.   The Center is committed to instilling youth with a work ethic that will last a lifetime. Maureen and Beth strive to be excellent mentors, ensuring that their youth participants learn not only the job skills but accountability for their actions. They leave the Center with the necessary life skills as well as transferable employment skills.

 

The partnership with the Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center has been extremely successful, and FMS Workforce Solutions System looks forward to a continuing partnership with them in workforce development.
