Before & After School Programs

Fed tax id: 01-6000357

Before & After Schools programs are times for children to learn and socialize in a safe space outside of school hours. This extended day gives parents more flexibility and an engaging setting for children.

Child Care Program Philosophy

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 our online program registration platform.

Registration Procedures for 2024-25 School Year

Due to the popularity of the before-school and after-school care programs and the space limitations per site, our registration for next school year is broken up into two registration periods:

Families who are currently enrolled in the 2023-24 program are able to register online beginning at 8:00 am on March 4. All current enrolled students have received instructions for that process.


Families who are new to Scarborough or new to our program may enroll their child or children on the Child Care Waitlists beginning at 8:00 am on March 4 at 8:00 AM. Prior to March 4, 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. 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. Please note that we will retain this waitlist all year long as spaces may open up as the school year progresses. 

We will begin emailing waitlist enrollees one by one after Monday, March 11, 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, assess the registration fee, and ask you to pay that fee within the next 48 hours online or over the phone. If payment is not completed within that time, we will release those spots to the next person on the waitlist.
