Registration Process for Child Care 2019-20

Registration for the 2019-20 child care program begins Wednesday, April 10, and remains open until school sites are full. This program does require an in-
person registration at Scarborough Town Hall, which will be open 8:00 am to 4:00 pm every day that week. 

Due to the craziness of last year’s registration and our prediction of similar happenings this year, we have decided to streamline the process to make it more efficient for everyone:

Current/Past Child Care Users

  • All current child care users needing services again MUST call the Community Services Office at 207-730-4150 to update their household information. We will be available to take your calls Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. This update phone call needs to be placed between March 4 and April 5. This call should not take any more than 10 minutes to complete.
  • Please be sure to have the following information ready: Parent(s) address(es), phone numbers, email address(es), child/ren’s dates of birth and medical information, and emergency contacts beyond parents. We will also need to input your chosen credit or debit card for billing so please have that available. New members can be added to your account during this update process, as well.
  • Once we have updated all information over the phone, we will make note of the update so that when you arrive to register for the program in person at Town Hall, it will be a relatively quick process.
  • Beginning Wednesday, April 10, households who have completed the phone update process will enter Scarborough Town Hall and proceed directly back to Council Chambers. Registration will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis so be sure to take a ticket and wait until you are called to the registration desk.
  • We will register your child/ren for your chosen days, have you complete one waiver sheet per child, and take your registration payment, which is $125 per child for the 2019-20 school year. This payment MUST be paid by cash or check.
  • If you choose to pay the registration fee by card, you will be required to register in the Community Services Office on the 3rd floor. This is where first-time child care users will be registering that day so there may be wait times.
  • Any household that has not completed the phone update process ahead of April 10 will also be required to complete the child care registration in the Community Services Office.


New to Child Care Program

  • Households who are new to the Community Services child care program may call our office ahead of time at 207-730-4150 to make sure we have all necessary information in our registration system. This will help to cut down on the registration wait times beginning Wednesday, April 10.
  • Registration for the 2019-20 school year opens on April 10. Registration takes place at Scarborough Town Hall at 259 US Route One. We are open 8:00 am to 4:00 pm each weekday. New households will need to complete their registration in our office on the third floor.
  • Please be sure to bring your chosen debit or credit card so that we may set up your monthly or bi-monthly billing.
  • We will register your child/ren for your chosen days, have you complete one waiver sheet per child, and take your registration payment, which is $125 per child for the 2019-20 school year. This payment may be paid by cash, check, or debit card.
