Our Mission

The Busy Beach Day Care Center, Inc. is a private not-for-profit corporation, established with the goals of providing quality day care services to the children of South Beach Psychiatric Center Staff, and other state employees, as well as the community at large

Our Philosophy

Our belief is that children learn through experience and, given the opportunity, develop healthy, positive attitudes about themselves and the world around them.

Our program strives to provide quality childcare by:

  • Fostering physical and emotional well-being

  • Nurturing self-esteem

  • Facilitating social development

  • Promoting language, creativity, and cognitive growth


Busy Beach Day Care Center is a not-for-profit 501 c (3) organization incorporated on April 11, 1984. The childcare center was and continues to be affiliated with the New York State Family Benefits Program (NYS FBP). This afflilation was formed in order to provide quality child care services to State employees in the following unions: Council 82, PEF, GOER, CSEA, UUP, DC 37, and GSEU, as well as to benefit the community. We are a New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene licensed child care center serving children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
