Afterschool programs serving students age 12 and under are usually required to register as School-Age Child Care (SACC) with the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS). Information on the SACC regulations and registration process can be found on the OCFS website. To find out if you need to be registered or more about the regulations, view the Child Day Care Orientation, which is also available on the OCFS website.

Please note that all questions regarding SACC regulations and registration should be addressed to your OCFS Regional Office.

For more information about ongoing efforts to update the SACC regulations, please see the Network for Youth Success’ Policy Priorities.
