Registration Procedure

Contact the Program Director(s) to inquire about openings (or click here for an online waiting list sign up form). If there is an opening, the parent/guardian and the Program Director will arrange a meeting. At this time, a registration packet will be completed and a start date will be arranged. If there are no openings, your name will be placed on a waiting list and you will be notified when an opening occurs. An annual pre-registration period is offered for families who are currently enrolled in our program and wish to preregister for the following school year. We strongly urge families to take advantage of pre-registration, as spots are not guaranteed from year to year, and availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

For inquiries about FUTURE child care needs, please submit a request for care form and indicate the school year that you are interested in on that form.  Your name will then be placed on the correct waiting list as of the date you submit the form.

Medications, Allergies, and Medical Conditions

If your child has any allergies, medical conditions, chronic illnesses, or limitations that could require treatment, medication, or specific care from QCARE staff while your child is in care (i.e. food allergies, bug bite allergies, asthma, diabetes, etc.), additional forms must be filled out by the Parent/Guardian and the child's licensed healthcare practitioner and included in your child's file prior to care.

Parents/Guardians must provide medications and required documentation in advance of care. Please see the "Medication Requirements Checklist" for information regarding medications and documentation. We recommend calling our main office at 617-773-3299 and speaking with a Program Director prior to having any forms filled out or signed by a doctor.
