Child Care Information

If your family is affected by the strike, you can get childcare at the Boys and Girls Club from 7:45am till 5pm. If you require after school childcare, they can accommodate kids until 6:30pm, if prearranged. Fees are $10/day, $35/month. Assistance scholarships are available to families with a household income of $75,000 /year or less. But the bottom line is that no child will be turned away unless they are at capacity; SPEA will pick up fees for any family in extreme need. Please go to the Boys and Girls Club website find registration paperwork and scholarship information.
