Mission 

As an extension of United Presbyterian Church of Albany, The Children's Place prioritizes healthy child development and a love for learning through age-appropriate Godly Play. For over 30 years we have served hundreds of families, taking care of children from infancy through kindergarten preparation.

 

Our philosophy of learning is to recognize and encourage each child at the level of development that they are at, delighting in each child's curiosity and imagination. Time is given for self growth and activities are planned for specific developmental areas. Children are given opportunity to share their individuality and grow compassion and appreciation for others. We focus on growth in socialization along with activities and classrooms that promote development in language, cognition, and motor skills.

 

We are located in the heart of downtown Albany and strive to provide high quality childcare at affordable rates for the working families in our community. We welcome children from six weeks to five years of age and offer a variety of schedules, with availability from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are proud partners with HiMama.
