About Us

Our Story

In August 1991, Carol and Bob Moore opened the first Care-a-lot Child Care center in Greece, which quickly garnered enthusiastic community support for its exceptional early childhood education and care. Over the past 20 years, their strong reputation led them to assume operations of other area child care programs. Today, Care-a-lot proudly serves families in eight locations across Rochester: North Greece, South Greece, Henrietta, Farmington, Pittsford, Victor, Browncroft, and Fairport.

In 2017, Care-a-lot Child Care was acquired by David Kolczynski, who remains dedicated to upholding the high standards of care at each site.

Now, in 2023, we welcome Generations to the Care-a-lot family. We are excited to embark on this new chapter, continuing our commitment to excellence in serving children and families in the Rochester community. With the addition of Generations, our organization now boasts 13 centers in the area, further expanding our impact and reach.  

About Us


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.
