Quincy After School Child Care (QCARE) General Information

Quincy After School Child Care General InformationQuincy After School Child Care (QCARE), Inc. is a non-profit organization providing licensed care for school aged children, kindergarten through thirteen years old. We are an affordable school age program, providing care within the elementary schools.

Created by former Mayor Francis X. McCauley and the Mayor's Commission on The Status of Women, we started operation in 1987 with one program which served thirteen children in the Montclair School. Since then, our school age program has grown and become a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that offers school age programs in nine Quincy elementary schools. A variety of programs are offered through Quincy After School Child Care, Inc., including school age programs during the school year, February and April vacation programs, as well as a summer program at the Lincoln Hancock school.
