SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Belmont Child Care Association officially opened its new child care center at Saratoga Race Course with a formal ribbon cutting.

On Wednesday, July 14, the Belmont Child Care Association, Inc. (BCCA) hosted a ribbon cutting to celebrate the official opening of Faith’s House, the newly constructed child care center designed to serve children and families of the Saratoga backstretch community during the summer. 

Faith’s House will provide child care and early education programs to children this summer. 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. 

Faith’s House offers dedicated rooms for infants, toddlers, and pre-school aged children, in addition to an outside play area. 

Funded by Michael and Lee Dubb, the 4,300 sq. ft. child care center is named in memory of Faith Dubb, mother of BCCA founder and board chairman, Michael Dubb.

The Saratoga facility complements BCCA’s sister child care center Anna House, which serves families of the Belmont Park backstretch. More than 1,000 students have participated in Anna House’s programs since its opening in 2003.

The opening coincides with the annual summer meet at Saratoga Race Course, which brings approximately 950 backstretch workers and their families to the Spa.
