The SCYA child care programs are licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and are operated in the Middle Country Central School District.
SCYA Before & After Care
SCYA before & after care programs provide a safe, fun, caring environment for the children of working parents. A variety of age-appropriate, supervised games, sports, and arts and crafts are offered, as well as healthy snacks, scheduled homework time and daily opportunities to socialize with peers. SCYA conducts all needs assessments, designs the program to meet district needs, obtains all licensing, recruits, screens, hires and compensates all program staff, provides all staff training, purchases all consumable materials, provides children with a nutritious snack each day, provides all program supervision, and maintains appropriate insurance coverage for the program.
The programs are open to all elementary school students residing in the Middle Country School District. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to capacity limits set by the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) regulations. There is a non-refundable $50 registration fee per child per school year.
We have both AM and PM programs for your child. Our morning program starts at 7:00am and goes until the start of school. Our after care program starts immediately after the school day ends until 6:00pm.
All staff undergoes an extensive background check and meet or exceed all requirements set by the state of New York. The programs maintain a staffing ratio of one adult to ten children at all times. SCYA site supervisors oversee the programs. In addition, OCFS inspectors visit the programs regularly.
