We can accommodate 4 children, per day, under the age of 2.
Children will have ample space to learn and explore with children who are older. Allowing infants to learn from older peers encourages independence skills such as crawling, walking and talking earlier than children who are in programs that segregate children by age/ability.
We can accommodate 8 additional children, per day, over the age of 2.
Children from ages 2-3.5 will have plenty of structured and unstructured time to practice their developmental skills.
Our main focus for this age group is developing social-emotional skills. They learn how to be kind, empathetic, and how to behave with socially appropriate etiquette.
Preschool is included for children registered full time, age 3.5 and older. All thematic curriculum is scaffolded for the younger children, so every one participates at an age appropriate level.
While all children will be school ready (knowing their colors, shapes, numbers, letters, and sight-words), they leave with the more important skills of emotional readiness, curiosity, and a love of learning.
In 2022 we applied to partner with the Bayport-Blue Point School District to offer UPK by lottery for 6 children. We are awaiting the results of the application process and will update when able.
With bussing now available, we can accept children from grades K-6 for before school and after school care. We also can accept these children on school holidays and summer, where we run a "camp" schedule.
As of 4-29-22 we have entered An Apple A Daycare NY, Inc. into Bayport Blue Point School District's consideration for Universal Preschool (UPK).
We will update this page when we are notified of how many seats we may accept.
UPK spots will be chosen through a lottery process, of which we have no control. These spots will be 1/2 paid for through government funding. The remaining tuition will be the responsibility of the parents or the DSS Subsidy (for those who qualify).
If you do not get a UPK spot through the lottery, and are still interested in UPK, please schedule a tour with us. We can contract UPK at full tuition for those who are interested.
Should we be chosen, An Apple A Daycare NY, Inc. will be the first in-home program on Long Island to offer UPK. While there are many factors as to why we may not be chosen in this round, we can and plan on reapplying annually. You can reach out to the District and inquire about the process or to request An Apple A Daycare NY, Inc. as a partner. We meet all the minimum requirements to host the program with the additional benefit to working families of:
