About Neighborhood Child Care Center

Founded in 1977 by Todd Greenbaum, Mary Staperfenne Greenbaum and several community leaders who perceived a need for quality child care and family support services. Since it’s inception, NC3 has provided countless numbers of families a safe, loving and healthy childcare environment. As a non-profit 501(c)3 community-based organization, NC3 is concerned with offering educational and recreational programs for children. The Center’s objective is to provide positive experiences which allow the child to grow independently, physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. Every child’s abilities, interests and limitations are considered in the planning of the daily program. With a “learning through play” model, concepts are incorporated into the activities. This allows the child freedom to experience new ideas through play. The program allows for structure and openness with staff. The child is encouraged to learn through exploration, self-direction and communication. Staff has always been a major priority at the Neighborhood Child Care Center. There is strong emphasis placed on education and experience. Todd Greenbaum holds a Bachelors degree in Social Work from Eastern Michigan University. He has considerable experience in children’s programming, community activities and the performing arts. Mary Staperfenne Greenbaum holds a Bachelors degree in Social Work from Eastern Michigan University. She also holds a Masters degree from Oakland University in Early Childhood Education. She has extensive experience in children and family services and is currently teaching in the Early Childhood Department at Oakland Community College. All NC3 staff applications are carefully screened prior to employment for references, DHS and MSP clearance. Selection is based upon history, education and work experience. They must possess a natural, genuine interest and concern in the healthy growth and development of children. Most importantly, they are part of our team because they truly like to “play” with children. Upon hiring, all staff are required to complete the NC3 training program consisting of philosophy, child development and programming. Staff continuing education is  always encouraged.
