A positive place to learn, grow & succeed

The Family Help Center Daycare—a Children’s Center for Success program—is the first daycare in Erie County dedicated to improving the lives of infants, toddlers and preschoolers through special services, support and training for teachers, caregivers and parents.

The program focuses on progress—not failure—helping children feel happy, secure and strong. Specialized training is used to bring out the best in every child, even those who have not done well in other daycare centers or preschools.
