We also have an amazing sister company Crayon Campus in Pittsford NY.  Click here to view their website.

Locally owned and operated, Inspire! is trusted and dedicated to the education, development and care of your child throughout the Monroe County and the Rochester NY area for nearly 30 years. INSPIRE! Learning and Childcare provides year-round, Monday through Friday, childcare and learning services for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond what it takes to be a premier New York State Licensed Child Care Center. The clear difference is that INSPIRE! provides the warmth and care you would expect from one on one care, with the world-class curriculum and depth of resources of moderate to large centers.


National Recognized Accreditation


Inspire! has  achieved Pathways Accreditation in both our Irondequoit and Greece locations.  This level of accreditation has Inspire! in a very exclusive group of childcare facilities that could meet the rigor, standards and quality required by The Children’s Institute. The Accreditation requirements exceed most all industry regulator standards.   Please see our Accreditation page for more information about Pathways.


Recent Testimonial!

We had come over from another center due to the lack of structure and
teaching. The first thing I noticed when our kids started was that everyone
sat together for meals in a calm fashion (about as calm as you can get with
toddlers!) and played nicely together. This was a big change from the center
we had come from! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the kid's
day is structured with learning and different play activities. Our kids have
thrived and are better behaved since they've been enrolled at Inspire! I would
recommend them to anyone!

Thank you Inspire!

Matt & Shannon S - son & daughter, ages 4 & 7

It was very difficult to put my son in full-time daycare. I'm a single mom
who has to have her son in "school" all day, Monday through Friday. Inspire!
has helped him to adjust to everyday life. They have helped him to deal with
new situations, taught him the days of the week, numbers, letters, shariing,
manners and behavior management. They even taught him responsibility
and pet care.

I could not have chosen a better daycare to both teach and care for my child
in my absence.

Edith K - son, age 4

It has been a pleasure having my children in the care of Inspire!. I am very
heart-hurt that my kids are leaving due to me living in the city and my kids
not having transportation. When I recieved a new position and new work
hours, it allowed me to be home to provide that transportation. Everything
about this daycare has been great. I would highly recommend Inspire! to
anyone looking for a good provider.

Rosalie A - daughters, ages 8 months & 3, son, age 4

My children have attended Inspie! since May 2009 and we are very pleased
with the staff and caretakers. My girls are 8 and 5 and are always excited to
go to summer day camp and engage in the many daily activities.
This summer they have had water fun, gone to free movies and even learned
many things at the Monroe County Fair. Thanks to Inspire!, my children
have met many new friends and receive the TLC they need when mommy is
not there to give it to them. Thanks!
