Our Space to Play

Children learn and grow through play. Outdoor play is especially important! Would you help create a safe play space for 80 of Buffalo's children?

A fundraising campaign for Buffalo State Child Care Center

The Buffalo State Child Care Center is a resource for families both on and off the Buffalo State Campus. We help foster a love of learning in an rich educational environment, meeting the developmental needs of our students with care and attention. Through play, students nurture creativity and self-expression, growing as people and as learners. BSCCC is a nonprofit organization, and to keep our tuition accessible to families, we have a tight budget! Many of our kids are the children of college students and many others receive tuition help to make the center more affordable. 

Play is especially important to young children. Outdoor gross-motor play is especially vital. Our playground has not been updated in over a decade, and it needs updates to help create a safe space for exploration. The students at the center love their playground, but new play equipment would assist in gross motor development in a safer environment. 

As this season warms up and you're spending more time outdoors, we would love to ask: Would you help our kids enjoy a safe outdoor space? The 80 children in our care rely on us to keep them safe and help them grow. Please stand with us in building a safe, fun play environment for our littlest Buffalonians. Will you help?

We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning.

We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy and oriented to children. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Learning centers allow children the opportunity to explore, to experience and most importantly...to succeed.

A strength of our program is the dedication of our staff. We support the teachers with training, resources, and freedom to create a unique learning experience for children. We provide many opportunities for the teachers to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child's creativity and positive self-image.

Parents are the most significant...
