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 (NYS OCFS), 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 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 days.
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.
