KOCO is a not-for-profit child care center that serves children from East Hampton and the surrounding communities. KOCO has served children, 8 weeks to 12 years, since 1988. 


We believe that all children are individuals with unique learning styles. Our teachers and lesson plans offer activities that both challenge and stimulate.


Stop in any time for a tour. We would be happy to show you all the wonderful things that KOCO has to offer.

"I can spot a KOCO kid a mile away. Their social skills, courtesy and respect are immediately apparent. My children are 9 (girl) and 3 (boy) and have both been at KOCO since they were 3 months old. I wouldn’t have it any other way." Renee Bafumi, KOCO Parent
