NON-PROFIT REPORT: The Coordinated Child Development Program

Non-profit Report
Rochester Business Journal
December 7, 2012

The Coordinated Child Development Program Inc. has provided early childhood education in Ontario County since 1973. Its seven programs serve more than 300 children and their families.
The organization has expanded substantially since its founding. Its initial programs in Canandaigua were housed in the Canandaigua United Methodist Church on Main Street and the Fiske House on Wilcox Lane. These programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children moved into the new Canandaigua Early Childhood Center in 1996. That center is now licensed for 149 children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
In 1989, CCDP opened Our Children's Place in Clifton Springs in collaboration with the Clifton Springs Hospital. That facility now is in the educational wing of the Clifton Springs United Methodist Church and is licensed for 136 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. A Head Start program also is available at this site, and CCDP manages the universal prekindergarten program for the Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District.
In 2010, CCDP added Children's Place, a school-age program at the Gorham Elementary School in Stanley.
The organization's seven programs:

  • The Canandaigua Early Childhood Center for children 6 weeks through 4 years old. The center was among the first in Ontario County to receive accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
  • The Canandaigua Early Childhood Center school-age program for ages 5 through 12.
  • Our Children's Place in Clifton Springs for children 6 weeks to 4 years old.
  • Our Children's Place for school-age children 5 to 12.
  • Phelps-Clifton Springs Head Start, a school readiness program for 3- and 4-year-olds.
  • Phelps-Clifton Springs universal prekindergarten at the Midlakes Primary School for children 4 years old.
  • The Children's Place school-age program in Stanley for children ages 5 through 12.
  • When the organization celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2013, it plans to rename all of its centers Our Children's Place while retaining the corporate name.

CCDP has 59 employees, and Cathy Canarvis is executive director. Its office is at 55 Wilcox Lane in Canandaigua, and its website is
