Critical Worker Childcare

Childcare for critical workers will be available from 7:30am-5:30pm in Critical Worker Childcare (adapted Stepping Stones) at RCLS. This care will be offered without charge from 7:30am-2:30pm, during school hours. Normal Stepping Stones fees will be assessed from 2:30-5:30pm. RCLS will be able to accommodate up to 80 children in Critical Worker Childcare.

In alignment with the MN Department of Education “School-age Care Guidelines,” RCLS will utilize the following criteria in determining eligibility for critical worker childcare:

1.  Households where all parents/guardians in the household are Tier One critical workers who are required to be at work.

2.  As space allows, households with at least one parent/guardian Tier One critical worker who is required to be at work.

3.  As space allows, households without Tier One critical workers.

According to MDE, “school-age care for children of critical workers is intended for extreme circumstances in which no parent or guardian is at home, due to employment as a critical worker.” Parents are encouraged not to use Critical Worker Childcare if they have the ability to work from home.
