NEW BEGINNINGS IN CHILDCARE: 10 WEST MAIN STREET, WATERLOO, NY, WELCOMES A NEW PROVIDER DEDICATED TO EDUCATING THE YOUTH AND STRENGTHENING TIES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY.

Waterloo, NY – April 16th, 2024 – Healthy Kids Programs, a leading provider in early childhood education, is thrilled to announce the opening of its new location in Waterloo, NY. The new center aims to extend its award-winning care to families in the Waterloo community, providing a solid foundation for the leaders of tomorrow.

With over 16 years of delivering excellence in child development in over 100 locations throughout the country, Healthy Kids brings its innovative approach to early learning to the heart of Waterloo.

The new center is designed to cater to the needs of children from 6 weeks to 12 years old, offering a variety of programs including Early Learning (6 weeks-5 years), FREE Saturday Enrichment Program (3-5 years), School Aged Before/After School Care (K-12 years), & Summer Camp (K-12 years). “Our curriculum fosters intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth through play- based learning and creative exploration.”

“As a Certified Benefit Corporation, our goal isn ‘t just profits but also using our business as a force for good that helps the children, families, & staff in the Waterloo community thrive.”

Healthy Kids is also proud to work hand in hand with multiple outlets to provide tuition assistance to eligible families. They even offer families up to 4 weeks of FREE childcare while they are in the process of applying for assistance so their child can start the program right away.

“Healthy Kids is so excited to be part of the Village of Waterloo’s successful initiative to renovate, re-open and revitalize one of the most charming downtowns in all of New York. The Village’s innovative leadership spearheaded New York State funding to help transform an underutilized building into a state of the art Healthy Kids childcare center that will offer excellent programming, enable parents to return to the workplace and enable employers to hire parents. A win win win!” says Healthy Kids CEO Steven Dwek

The grand opening celebration is scheduled for early May, where families can meet the staff, tour the new facility, and learn more about the programs while the kiddos enjoy some fun activities and entertainment.

Healthy Kids Programs is now enrolling for Early Learning, Summer Camp & The Free Saturday Enrichment Program. The Preschool classroom is now open, and the Toddler/Infant rooms will open towards the end of the month.

Preliminary Engineering Report – Water Sewer Extension

The purpose of this report is to provide preliminary information pertinent to the planning, design, and construction of a new sewer extension, for the Village of Waterloo, specifically the portion of the Village designated as the “island area”. The proposed sewer extension includes a portion along Washington Street, and connection to the Village’s existing sewer system on East Water Street. The overall intent is to provide sewer service to this area of the Village such that the buildings can be revamped and the area can be redeveloped. Refer to Appendix A for a site plan of the proposed project.

This report provides alternatives and recommendations for a new sewer system that will serve the properties in this area and convey sanitary flows to the Village’s existing system. The report focuses on project feasibility, appropriate design concepts, pertinent permitting, estimated costs, and project implementation. The Village was awarded a grant allocation through the 2020 FY Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program to complete this report.
