Children working on project

Webster Child Care Center

Every child is a bundle of energy. That’s why we offer 8 ½ acres for them to exercise their bodies and minds and explore the natural environment. Our play-centric curriculum takes them outside every season of the year, always under the watchful supervision of our caring staff.

About Our Webster Campus

Rather than asking children to conform to curriculum, we build learning around the child. We make it comfortable for them to explore their senses and express themselves uniquely and at their own paces.

In addition to our ample green space children enjoy a private in-ground swimming pool. Part of the center is housed in a former train depot, which now serves as a fun clubhouse for school-aged kids — especially in the summer when more than 100 children enjoy water balloon fights, outdoor painting, soccer games and more.

School Age Program – Over 25 Years of Experience

Unique School Age Programs and Activites

We’ve been a provider of before and after school care in Webster for over 25 years and that is part of why children thrive in our unique and fun environment. In their own dedicated space, before and after school students can choose the clubs, classes, character development and community service projects they want to participate in as well as take part in planning these programs. Our recreation counselors are there to keep every child included.  It’s also a great place to make new friends or stay in touch with old ones.  We have kids from all of the schools in the Webster district and if you need summer camp care, your child will benefit from the familiar faces and environment of camp at EBCC! We offer flexible options for children from kindergarten through grade 6 – plus, we’re always here for you – our doors are open during school vacations, most holidays and snow days so you never need to scramble for care!

Primary Benefits

  • Families enjoy priority enrollment for summer camp with enrollment in school age program.
  • Kids work with experienced, tenured, full-time employees serving as school age recreational counselors.
  • Vacation/holiday/snow day care is available when schools are closed.
  • After a day at the school your child can enjoy a change of scenery at our unique facility where school age children have a dedicated space they can call their own.
  • We offer flexibility in scheduling for before school, after, or a combination and can accommodate short notice changes.
  • We offer homework assistance.
  • A state of the art, age appropriate outdoor playground and lots of field space for group games and sports.
  • The district provides busing from all Webster elementary schools, middle schools, and private schools including parochial schools.
