SARATOGA SPRINGS — The New York Racing Association this week installed the sign for the forthcoming Belmont Child Care Association, Inc. (BCCA) childcare center at Saratoga Race Course, which is set to begin serving families and children of the backstretch community in summer 2021.

Located on the Oklahoma side of the Saratoga backstretch, the colorful sign for the 4,300-square-foot childcare center features the BCCA logo underneath the facility’s official name: Faith’s House. Funded by Michael and Lee Dubb, the center is named in honor of Faith Dubb, mother of BCCA founder and board chairman Michael Dubb.

Faith’s House will provide child care and early education programs for infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children. The center will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. to accommodate the schedules of backstretch workers and horsemen. 

The anticipated summer 2021 opening coincides with the annual summer meet at Saratoga Race Course, which brings approximately 950 backstretch workers and their families to the Spa. The opening of the new center is contingent upon licensing approval from New York State and the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
