Elementary school parents frequently ask about child care providers and/or about having their children bused to a babysitter's or child care provider's home after school. The BH-BL school district does not itself provide child care. However, the district does assist parents in two ways regarding this need.

YMCA Child Care: Through a cooperative arrangement between the school district and the YMCA, child care is available for all elementary pupils before school, after school, and for the half days when pupils are not in school. See location and contact details in the list below.

Transportation to a babysitter's or child care provider's location: Children will be transported to and from their own home daily unless parents complete and submit a copy of the district Bus Stop Change Form to request that they be regularly transported to ONE other location.

Here are the rules regarding transportation to any location other than the child's home.

  • Parents may request that their children be regularly transported to or from a babysitter's home as long as that home is within the same school attendance zone as the school the child attends.  
  • Parents may request that their children be regularly transported to or from a NY state licensed day care center anywhere within the BH-BL district boundaries. For example, a child attending the Pashley Elementary School could be bused to the home of a family friend or relative living within the Pashley attendance area, but not to the home of another relative living within the Stevens attendance area. However, that same Pashley child could be transported to a day care provider's home anywhere within the district, provided that provider was licensed by NY State.

A request to have your child transported to any location other than your home should be made in writing to your school principal either before July 15 (July 1 for kindergarten pupils) or after Sept. 26. Use the Bus Stop Change Form to make this request, and turn it in to your main school office.

Parents should keep in mind that students' safety is the most important factor in everything that relates to the BH-BL Transportation Department. Being responsible for the safety of more than 3,000 children every day is a serious matter, so clear and careful rules regarding busing to child care providers are essential and will be followed.

Below is a list of licensed day care providers known to operate within the BH-BL district. (NOTE: this list is posted as a courtesy to assist parents in researching their child care options. The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake school district cannot endorse or vouch for any provider. See the NY State Child Care Services website for more information on finding a child care provider.)
