About Us

OUR STORY

In August 1991, Carol and Bob Moore opened the doors of their first Care-a-lot Child Care center in Greece.  The community enthusiastically responded to the quality of early childhood education and care available at the center.  Because of their strong reputation, the Moores have been welcomed to assume the operations of other area child care programs over the past 20 years.  Care-a-lot Early Learning Center is now serving families in six locations in the Rochester community:  North Greece, South Greece,  Henrietta, Farmington/Canandaigua, Pittsford, and Fairport.

In 2017, Care-a-lot Child Care was purchased by David Kolczynski, who is committed to maintaining the high standards of care at each site.  In 2020, with the addition of three new locations, Care-a-lot was re-branded as Care-a-lot Early Learning Center, to heighten awareness of the pre-school and Universal Pre-K programs available.
