STONY BROOK CHILD CARE SERVICES, INC.

 
General Information
Description of ServiceOffers child care for children from 8 weeks to 5 years. The center is nationally accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. The Center is open Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., with various shifts available, and serves University, Health Sciences and Medical Center faculty staff and students as well as non-affiliated community families. Affiliated families pay tuition according to a sliding scale based on gross family income. The Center is staffed by full-time professionals, assisted by part-time support staff and University students enrolled in the Psychology 488 Internship. Under the supervision of our staff, these carefully selected students work closely with the teachers in the classroom and attend weekly training. One of the ways we support a low child to adult ratio is to invite students who have completed these courses with high marks to work as part time support staff. The child-teacher ratio in the 3-5 year old program is 7 to 1; and the Infant-Toddler program is 4 to 1. Our primary aim is to provide a warm, supportive and creative atmosphere. Each room is "family-grouped", enabling children to interact with others of different ages. Since children at this stage of their development "learn by doing," there are plenty of hands-on activities that at times build a child’s self-reliance. Children bring their own lunch. We provide nutritionally sound snacks in the morning and afternoon, that the children help to prepare. Our staff foster a positive, non-sexist, non-violent and non-authoritarian, multi-cultural environment. Children are encouraged to express their feelings and needs verbally and to respect those of others. For more information and/or an appointment to visit, please contact us. For further information or guidance in the location and selection of child care services, please contact the Child Care Council of Suffolk at (631)462-0303 or the Child Care Services of Nassau at (516)358-9250.
