Children in the Bugbee Children’s Center gymnasium on campus.

The Bugbee Children's Center is located in Bugbee Hall on State Street in beautiful Oneonta, New York. Bugbee Hall is owned and graciously maintained by SUNY Oneonta. We occupy the first and second floors.

Features of this building are the full-sized gymnasium located on the second floor, 4 fenced-in outdoor playgrounds, an auditorium with a stage, and a full-sized institutional kitchen. In addition, we have 10 classrooms available for our use. A renovation completed in 2006 included new windows and the addition of an elevator. Also completed in 2006 was the installation of a new security surveillance system that allows the Center to control and monitor the entrances through the use of intercom and video cameras.

We are located in a quiet residential neighborhood near but not on the main campus. Local bus routes provide easy access to the main campus and downtown. City parks and neighborhood destinations are a pleasant walk for our children.
