Critical Worker Child Care Information 

  • Critical Workers Child Care (CWCC) will be offered to Tier One critical workers who cannot work from home and have no other child care available during school hours (the Tier One list is different from the spring). Verification will be required.  Districts have been updated from Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) late last week with the following information.  

    • The 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. The no cost child care is to be made available when the only parent or both parents in the household are employed as critical workers.

    • The intent is to ensure districts/charters have the capacity to meet this need while at the same time not preventing the critical care worker from going to their job. Districts can expand the minimum requirements if they feel they have the capacity to do so. 

    • Both parents need to be Tier One critical workers.  If the family is a two-parent household, and one is not a critical worker, then districts are not required to provide the free care but could do so if capacity allows.

    • Tier One critical workers include essential workers in healthcare and public health, educators and school staff caring for children of any critical worker, law enforcement, public safety and first responders, food and agriculture, judicial branch essential services, National Guard, and child care providers caring for children of any critical worker.

  • CWCC Location:  care space will be limited to one CWCC room, restrooms and outside for large muscle. Wednesdays, the building will be busy with additional staff for thorough cleaning.  Rooms/spaces/classrooms are also limited (by MDH), to avoid multiple uses for COVID-19 safety.
