Why do current families get to register first?

It is the program’s practice to provide currently enrolled families the courtesy of early registration. This is part of our commitment to customer service, and helps strengthen relationships between students and staff.

Why does Club Care limit the number of students who can enroll? Why not offer it to all elementary students?

Our exceptional Club Care program is popular and demand is high. The program provides academic enrichment and recreation activities. Our priority is to maintain quality in a safe environment for students. Because Club Care operates under the guidelines of the state Department of Human Services, which licenses and oversees child care programs statewide, we can only offer spots to children until the program is full. The program becomes full when we maximize the staff-to-student ratio at each site.

Can I make changes to my approved contract? What is the process and deadline to do that?

If your child care needs change after your original registration, please go online (HERE) to request a schedule change. Online changes will be allowed up until Aug 10. After that date, please call 952-556-6401 to report a change in your child care needs.

What are the school start times for 2019/2020?
