CHILDCARE UPDATE (4/30/2020):
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Santiam will be expanding childcare programs to support families as Oregon "re-opens." Additionally, with the support of our Board of Directors, we will be providing this childcare through the end of May at a reduced fee.
This childcare program for elementary (K-5th grade) students operates in compliance with CDC and Oregon Department of Health regulations, AND includes a highly regulated daily schedule made up of 3+ hours of academic time, gym, STEM, art, and more. Each full day includes breakfast, lunch, and snack. Additional details about program content are available at www.bgcgreatersantiam.org
Because the number of spaces are limited, there is no drop in or part time option for this program, you must register your child (children) at least 24 hours in advance by calling your local office - Lebanon 541.258.7105 or Sweet Home 541.367.6421.
As directed by the State, the program remains no cost for healthcare workers and first responders.
Essential worker, cost per child for the month of May will be $150. If you register (later than May 6) the fee will be prorated for ALL the remaining days of the month at $7.50/day. As noted above, there is no part time option for Emergency Childcare. All fees must be paid in advance and as noted in our policies we cannot provide refunds.
The Club will be closed on Memorial Day (May 25) and for the first week in June for deep cleaning and summer set up. Summer camp programs will begin on June 8th. Summer camp themes, schedules and fees will be posted by mid-May.
NOTE: Due to the Emergency Childcare requirements of a high staff to child ratio (2:10) the direct cost to serve 10 children for a week in this 10 hour/day program is currently $3500, this equates to $70/day per child.
For additional information or to register a child for childcare call your local office: 541.258.7105 or 541.367.6421.
