Please note that your child cannot attend KIDSTOP until at least 2 business days upon receipt of your registration.
Registration for All Day KIDSTOP during distance learning models is currently only open to critical workers.
Free school-age care for children of critical workers is intended for extreme circumstances in which no parent or guardian is at home, due to employment as a critical worker. Free child care, as mandated by the State of Minnesota, is to be made available when the only parent or both parents in the household are employed as critical workers. Parents requesting to receive free care will be required to provide qualifying documentation for all parents and guardians. This documentation will include employer, contact information, schedule for all parents/guardians.
Please review the current qualifications for critical workers for free childcare here. If you meet these qualifications, you must fill out the childcare for critical workers form. We will notify you if you are approved for free child care. As an approved critical worker, your child may participate in All Day KIDSTOP, even if you are not approved for free childcare.
Important notice for Sauk Rapids-Rice and Sartell-St. Stephen families:
We are experiencing staffing and space restrictions in the Sartell-St. Stephen and Sauk Rapids-Rice School Districts; therefore, parents residing in these districts MUST fill out the childcare for critical workers form and be approved as a critical worker (even if you are not approved for free childcare) BEFORE registering for All Day KIDSTOP.
