New students may enroll in the program at any time during the school year. In order to secure your childпїЅs enrollment you must:

Complete and sign the Children's Center application form.

Complete a Tuition Statement with an Accompanying payment

Read and Sign the Parent Handbook Statement.

These forms are available at the Putnam Valley Children's Center or at the Parks and Recreation Office. 24 HOURS ADVANCE NOTICE IS REQUIRED BEFORE JOINING THE PROGRAM. 


The success of the Center is based in part on the successful communication between the staff, parent, and child. Parents are often able to provide valuable insight that may affect how a child will behave when at the Center. The Center Director is available throughout the year to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. Please call the Parks and Recreation Office to make an appointment at 845-526-3292.

The enjoyment and safety of all the children attending the Center is the primary concern of the staff.  The same behavior that is expected during school is expected of the children at the Center. Parents will be notified of any problems by the Center Director.

Enrollment at the Center is a privilege which may be removed, if a childпїЅs behavior warrants suspension, or expulsion. The Children's Center management reserves the right to deny entry to or remove any participant from any program due to disciplinary problems, or to avoid creating a staffing hardship situation which is beyond reasonable expectations of the Putnam Valley Parks and Recreation Department.
