Congratulations to Mill Creek Early Childhood Program!

The Batavia Chamber of Commerce was thrilled to celebrate the opening for the second location of Mill Creek Early Childhood Program with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, January 20. The Batavia Chamber member extensively remodeled the former Chase Bank location at 130 S. Batavia Avenue for this expansion. Batavia Mayor Jeffery Schielke presided over the celebration with the owners, Dan and Ilana Marczak and their two daughters. Programs and care for infants, toddlers, two’s, 4/5 and kindergarten students are housed here, with Emily Park as the director. 

Mill Creek Early Childhood Program is a Reggio Inspired, nature and relationship-based early childhood program. Their curriculum encourages young children and their teachers to explore, question, and discover in a stimulating environment. Encouraging creativity is at their program’s forefront, and is on display with the creative redesign and use of the previous bank’s features. The fenced-in drive-through area became a covered outdoor play area, while the bank’s vault with safe deposit boxes is now a storage area after removing all the boxes’ doors and bolting open the vault door.
