The University at Buffalo Child Care Center, Inc. (UBCCC)
consists of two child care sites located at UB’s North
Campus and South
Campus of the University at Buffalo (UB). The sites, which are
licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family
Services (NYSOCFS), are designed to serve
children of UB students, faculty, staff and the community. The
University at Buffalo Child Care Center, Inc. is one of the few
centers in Western New York that is accredited by the National
Academy of Early Childhood Programs, a division of the National
Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
UBCCC offers both full-time and part-time care, serving the
needs of children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 5 years, with a summer,
school and vacation
club program for school-age children 5 to 12 years old. Hours
of operation are from 7:15 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through
Friday. Both sites are open year-round with the exception of the
ten legal holidays observed by the center and staff development
UBCCC is a private, not-for-profit organization, dependent
primarily upon tuition from parents and special grants from the
State University of New York Central.
The University at Buffalo Child Care Center, Inc. does not
discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, culture, national
origin or ability.
UBCCC opened in 1985 on the UB South Campus because of dedicated
students, faculty and administrators who were responding to the
need for affordable and quality campus child care. A second campus
child care facility was opened in 1998 on the UB North Campus, and
in 2010 the South Campus facility was renovated and the North
Campus facility was expanded for a total of 18 UBCCC infant,
toddler and preschool learning environments that can serve up to
220 children. A school-age program for summer and vacation days was
added in 2011.
