Child Care Services

The University provides on-campus child care services for approximately 160 children ranging in age from two months to five years. Stony Brook Child Care Services is a nonprofit, nationally accredited center, providing service for University students, faculty, and staff. The Center is staffed by professionals in the early childhood field who are assisted by students enrolled in coursework practice.

The primary aim is to provide a warm, supportive, and creative atmosphere in which each child, and each child's family, is regarded as individual. Hours of operation vary. Fees are charged on a sliding scale based on income.

There is a waiting list for the Center; interested persons should complete an application well before the service will be needed, as placement cannot be guaranteed. Call (631) 632-6930 for more information.
