posted Jan 8, 2018, 9:59 AM by Nicole Hall

With the upcoming school start time changes for the 2018-2019 school year, Community Services Child Care Program is encouraging families to complete the survey

below so that we can better assess your child care needs for next year. This information will allow us to prepare for the upcoming school year and continue to provide the best services possible.

https://www.questionpro.com/t/AN0dHZbIQe

We are asking that surveys be completed by Friday, January 19.

Once you have completed the survey, feel free to email Audra Keenan, Intergenerational Programs Manager, at akeenan@scarboroughmaine.org with any feedback regarding AM or PM care for the upcoming school year in regards to the school time changes.


PLEASE NOTE: You may have received this link through an email from the School Department. This post is to help those with incoming Kindergartners. Also, the survey is only set to answer questions for one child. If you have multiple children, you will need to re-click the survey link and answer the questions again for subsequent children.

The outdoor ice rink is officially open for the 2017-18 season! 
The status of the ice will be updated daily on our ice rink hotline at 207-883-7645.

Please call our ice rink hotline for ice rink status updates.

The ice rink has been renovated this year so that there are two distinct rinks -- the upper rink for hockey and the lower rink for skating. Both rinks will be open to the public, depending on weather and ice conditions, from dawn to 9:00 pm. Please note that the warming hut will not be available on a daily basis this season.
