Distance Learning at Children’s Choice: What to Expect… And What Not to
As our community enters uncharted territory, we have been thinking a lot about how we can continue our mission to facilitate the positive development of children, support their families, and assist their teachers. We are all tasked, now, with circumstances we didn’t sign up for and couldn’t have imagined just a year ago.
APS has approved Children’s Choice to continue offering full-day care through December at the following locations:
Care will be available Monday through Friday, through December 18th. Our hours of operation are 8:00am to 5:00pm (except for Double Eagle, Hubert Humphrey, John Baker, and North Star, which will be open at 7:45am).
Health and Safety Guidelines
We are following Health and Safety Guidelines to help providers and early childhood professionals maintain social distancing practices and health and safety standards. Those guidelines can be found here.
Pricing and Financial Responsibility
Full Days for all schools are $37/day or $140/week.
If you need to change your days, or withdraw your child from the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by the Thursday of the week before you need the changes to be implemented. There is no drop-in option at this time, so you must select at least one day per week. You will be financially responsible for all the dates you select, regardless of attendance. The only exceptions to this policy are:
- If we cannot provide child care due to a positive case of COVID-19 at the site, or
- If you or your child have tested positive for COVID-19 and must self-isolate at home (a letter from the Department of Health will be required to verify this)
If you register for child care, a separate email will be sent to you soon with details about what specific support we need from you and what support we can offer students for remote learning.

APS is providing free lunches to all kids at each of our six sites. If you prefer to bring your child bring a lunch from home, please ensure that it does not require refrigeration or heating up.
