Oneida Area Day Care Center
Providing quality early care and education since 1971   



The Oneida Area Day Care Center (OADCC) is a not-for-profit corporation, licensed by NYS Office of Children and Family Services to provide early childcare and education.  The childcare center was established in 1971, by a group of local community members, and was located at the First United Methodist Church of Oneida, on the corner of Main and Grove Street.   After 34 years, with the support of the community and a grant from New York State, the childcare center opened a new facility in Oneida, located at 447 Sayles Street.  This facility opened in November 2004 and can accommodate 129 children ages 6 weeks-12 years of age.

Over the past 30 + years, OADCC has provided quality childcare to hundreds of local children.  Currently at least 25% of our slots are designated for qualified low-income families. The OADCC also partners with the Madison County Early Learning Center, providing an inclusive toddler classroom.  The Creative Curriculum by Teaching Strategies is used for the Infant/Toddler and Preschool programs.  Our Preschool and Pre-K rooms have adopted some of the common core standards to ensure that our children are Pre-K and Kindergarten ready.  Our School Age Enrichment Program allows children to participate in activities that build on their knowledge from school and provides new experiences for them to explore.   We are also a BOCES teacher training organization allowing Early Childhood Education interns to participate in field experiences at our center.
Each employee has a fingerprint and background check performed prior to employment, as well as become CPR and First Aid certified.  Each teacher and teacher assistant must have college credits in early childhood education, education or human services.
