Child Care Programs

The goal of our programs is to promote the physical, mental, social, and emotional development of each child by providing a high-quality child care program. Programs include a nutritious snack every day, outside play or indoor physical activity, crafts, special projects, and quiet times. We view the home, school, community, and child care settings as complementary and interrelated domains that affect children’s growth and development.
A list of all current child care and summer day camp programs is maintained in WebTrac, our online program registration service.  To learn more about current offerings or for a certain type of activity, click the link below.


Looking Ahead to 2020-21 School Year

As we head into preparations for school year 2020-21, we will plan to post updates here as to any changes and/or additions that come along, especially as it concerns the registration process:

The waitlists for Child Care 2020-21 school year will still be available for registration beginning at 8:00 am on Monday, March 30. Please see below for registration details:


If your child is currently not enrolled in the child care 2019-20 program, or is new to Scarborough Schools, please take the following steps:
  • We will begin an online waitlist on March 30 for all unenrolled families. Prior to March 30, please make sure you have a registration account in our system. Call us at 207-730-4150 so we can set up an account for you, update an existing account, or give you your login information. Since registration will be school specific, we will want to make sure all of your child/ren’s information is in the system correctly.
  •  On March 30, beginning at 8:00 am, the online waitlist enrollment will open. This waitlist enrollment will essentially assign you a spot in line at your child’s school site so that we may contact you should space become available. Alternatively, you may call our office on or after 8:00 am on March 30 to have us add your name(s) to the waitlist.

How to Register for Online Waitlist

    • Visit Webtrac
    • Login in with your user name and password
    • All waitlists will appear below and will be specific to the school site your child will be attending.
    • Select your chosen school site by clicking the + button on the left hand side. PLEASE NOTE: You will need to enable pop-ups to continue registration.
    • Click Proceed to Checkout.
  • We will begin calling waitlist enrollees one by one on April 6, moving down the list in numerical order. If we contact you and you are interested in the days we have to offer, we will hold the days for you so that you may come in and officially register. Deadlines for official registration will be given during that phone call and if registration is not completed within that time, we will release those spots to the next person on the waitlist.


Update 1/7/2020:    Club Teen Program Minimum Headcount Requirement

For many years, we have been running our Club Teen program despite not meeting our minimum headcount of 20 students.  On a daily basis we vary from 5 to 10 students in attendance, with at least two staff members in attendance on most days. 

Looking ahead to next school year, we will be sticking to our minimum headcount of 20 in order to run this program. When registration opens in March, those registering for Club Teen with not be required to pay a registration fee. Your child’s name will go on the list and when we meet the minimum headcount you will be contacted to complete registration at that time. If the program does not run, we will send notification to those on the list no later than July 1.
