EMERGENCY PROGRAM TO ASSIST FAMILIES WHERE PARENTS MUST WORK DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
After consulting with the Oswego County Health Department and the Child Care & Development Council:
BEGINNING TOMORROW, THURSDAY, MARCH 18th VANDERKAMP WILL OFFER AN EMERGENCY PROGRAM TO ASSIST FAMILIES WHERE PARENTS MUST WORK DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
As a THANK YOU to the healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines of this crisis, priority registration will be given to your children and additional savings applied. For other families with more than one child, Vanderkamp's multiple child savings have always applied to all children (including the 1st) and we will continue to offer that now. For maximum flexibility, registration fees will be assessed per day not per week.
Apologies for the delay but we just received answers to some of our COVID-19 questions late yesterday. If you are in need of child care tomorrow, please call us at (315) 675-3651 before 6 pm this evening to see if this is the right program to meet the needs of your family. Others may contact us if and when the need arises during business hours the day before you need child care. We expect to have our Parent Handbook and Registration Form available this afternoon.
As we all know the situation is evolving daily, and we will continue to monitor and adjust to new guidelines as they develop. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to serve families in our community during these challenging times.
This is an early roll out of a program we have been working toward and were hoping to begin in the coming months. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we choose to work with the Oswego County Health Department and the Child Care and Development Council to be able to serve families of First Responders, Healthcare Professionals and other Essential Workers in need.
