Tier 1 Instructional Support Child Care

A family attends a Richfield Public Schools open house event

Overview

A free child care option for families with Tier 1 workers is available during scheduled school hours for students enrolled in Richfield Public Schools. We partner with Fun Club school-age care to provide this service and include District staff support for distance learning. You may choose the days you attend. A portion of the morning will be scheduled for students to work on distance learning. Student drop off and pick up follows regular school hours and school calendar (hours listed below).

Qualifications

Children of critical workers who are in grades PK-5 (age 4 -12) are eligible for this care, which is intended for extreme circumstances in which no parent or guardian is at home because all of the parents or legal guardians in the child’s household are working in Tier I positions. The complete list of critical workers can be found below. If you qualify, please begin the registration process now. Attach your verification or provide it separately, prior to starting care. If you have the ability to work from home, we encourage you to do so and allow space for critical workers who are most in need of this service. View the full list of Tier 1 Employment Categories.
