The Viking Child Care Center is licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
The Viking Child Care Center has collaborated with CEO Head Start since 1998. This partnership allows children who are income-eligible to be enrolled in both the Viking Child Care Center and the Head Start program, which enables them to attain additional services. Similarly, the Viking Child Care Center also works with the Enlarged City School District of Troy to provide families with a Universal Pre-Kindergarten program.
Our $3 million, 16,000-square-foot center opened in August 2001. We
are located on Williams Road at the southeastern end of Hudson Valley's
campus. The center's design was included in the 2002 American School
and University Architectural Portfolio, which is touted as "the premier
showcase for education design projects."
