Back-Up Care


hallwayOur program is designed to have children attend our center between the hours of 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.  The school bus will pick up your child from our center before the start of the public school day and drop your child off in front of our center after school is out.

Sachem transportation needs to be notified by parents who enroll in this program.  We can provide the phone numbers for transportation upon your request.

The before-school program will consist of eating breakfast provided by the parents, sitting with story books and puzzles, and playing with tabletop toys.

The after-school program will consist of homework help, a library area, an arts and crafts area, board games, and video time.

Tuition includes care based upon your enrollment options.  We will provide care for early dismissals, half days for parent/teacher conferences, emergency snow closings, and late starts at no extra charge.  Our program runs on a public school schedule.  If public school is closed, our Before and After School Program is as well.  Back-Up Care is then available on a first come, first served, per-diem basis.  If you have any questions pertaining to the program, please speak with Jennifer, the Director of Summerfield Child Care Center or Lorilynn, the Office Manager.

All parents will be required to fill out both a medical and background form for their child so we will know if your child has any medical problems, food allergies, etc.  An afternoon snack will be provided for your child.

Weather permitting, outside playtime will be provided.  Please do not allow your child to bring toys from home to school.  Books and magazines are welcome.
