Welcome to
Inspire! Irondequoit

We provide Learning and Childcare services year-round, offering care to children between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years of age. 

We had a wonderful experience with Inspire! in Irondequoit.

Ms. Jean and the team did a great job caring for and providing fun and educational activities for my child. Katie, as the Center Director, answered all of my questions and helped make enrolling very easy.

We pride ourselves on going above and beyond our families’ expectations to do what it takes to be a premier New York State licensed childcare center.

What separates us from other large franchises is a warm, caring, creative, learning, and loving environment. When you walk through our doors, you will feel that the center is a home away from home with an individual focus on each child and their specific needs.

Our center has been newly refurbished, with all new floors, walls, decor, and more! Take a virtual tour of our facility.
