Make a Difference in a Child’s Life by Volunteering

The School Age UP Program is always looking for volunteers to help connect our youth with new opportunities, resources, and mentors. There are several volunteer positions and a variety of times and days available during which you can help. We rely on the support of dedicated and passionate volunteers to help these youth reach their full potential; so if you are interesting in helping, please visit the Rochester Child Care Center’s Volunteer Opportunity page.

Our mission

Rochester Child Care Center is a dynamic, reflective, and caring community. Teachers are inspired to be enthusiastic learners who teach children by example as they share their love for creativity and discovery. Teachers and families work together to build an atmosphere of trust, mutual respect, and loyalty. This supports families and teachers in building partnerships that benefit all children. All children feel a sense of belonging as they are accepted, loved, and nurtured with a focus on supporting healthy development and engaging them in meaningful activities.
