GCC is made up of a volunteer Board of Directors, Executive Director, Program Director, Office Manager, Bookkeeper, Site Directors and direct care employees. Together the employees and the Board of Directors establish policies and procedures concerning the general operation of the agency. Our employees are committed to providing quality child care. GCC provides its employees with ongoing training to ensure that we reach a high standard of care for each child. We consistently evaluate our programs and survey our families to ensure that we meet or exceed parental expectations.
Our mission is to provide school-age children with developmentally appropriate child care, along with recreational and enrichment activities in a positive environment.
GCC Summer Program Update - East Greenbush
Greenbush Child Caring plans to operate a Summer Day Camp at Genet Elementary School from June 28, 2021 – August 20, 2021. Hours will be 7:30a.m. – 5:30p.m. We will offer our traditional camp programs, Explorer, Discovery and a Leader-In-Training program. The Explorer* and Leader-In-Training programs will travel two times per week, with one of the trips being a swim trip. The Discovery Program will remain on site each day.
*We intend to offer the Explorer program as described above. Should the program change based on COVID-19 restrictions and/or unforeseen circumstances we will keep parents apprised. Field trips should be secured prior to the first billing date of May 1. If we are not able to secure field trips due to restrictions, we will advise parents and the option of the Discovery program will be made available.
The cost of the Explorer program is $250/week, the cost of the Discovery program is $220/week, and the cost of the Leader-In-Training program is $550 for each 4-week session (there are two 4-week sessions). Multi-week discounts begin at week 3 for Explorer and Discovery; the L.I.T. program is excluded.
Our camp calendar and parent handbook will be posted by March 5, 2021. Registration will open by March 15th and we will notify our families once it is open.
Update to GCC Programs in the East Greenbush Central School District
Beginning March 10th, we will be offering our before-school and after-school programs 3 days per week, to accommodate in person learning every other Wednesday. The additional monthly cost for two Wednesdays is $15 for the before-school program and $22 for the after-school program. If you are already enrolled in one or both of those programs and would like to add Wednesday’s please reply to the email sent on 2/25/21 by 3/1/21 so changes to your account can be completed.
If you are registered in RAP at St. Mary’s or Genet on Wednesdays, please reply to confirm which group your child is in (A or B) so we can remove that program (every other Wednesday) from your account.
Once you confirm, you will not need to take any other action; we will update your enrollment.
Please note, effective 3/10/21 RAP will no longer operate at Genet on Wednesdays. We will only be using St. Mary’s Church; we will move your child’s enrollment to St Mary’s.
