Kidz Club (School Age Child Care)

Hello! Welcome to the Kidz Club website! We are the school age childcare for the Plainview-Elgin-Millville School District. We provide childcare year around for children that are in the PEM school district.

We have a registration for our school year program and another one for our summer program. We do open registration up to our existing families before we open it to new families.

*School year 2020-2021 Our school year registration is full. Per the Governor's executive order, we are only taking Tier 1 qualifying families. HOWEVER, we're limited in the number of children we can have in a room, making it impossible for us to accept all Tier 1 families.

*Summer 2021- As of now Kidz Club has limited space available with guidance's from the Governor, Community Education Association, MDE, CDC, & MN Department of Health. We will be having limited space. We continue to wait for the summer guidance to determine what we will be able to do. As the information comes out we will update this page.

For more specific information about prices, hours of operation, policies, etc. visit the About Kidz Club tab or the Handbook tab.

If there is anything you have questions feel free to email us or call us anytime.

School Age Child Care – Kidz Club

2020-2021 Planning Guide

Our daily activities have changed a lot recently, and SACC is no different. In mid-March, Governor Walz directed districts to pause with regular programming, to allow school-day childcare for emergency workers only for the remainder of the school year. Throughout the summer and now as we begin this fall, we’re still being asked to prioritize caring for those children of workers in critical sectors. Additionally, we’re tasked with providing this care with strict capacity limits within the limited space we have, social distancing requirements, face coverings, enhanced hygiene practices, rigorous cleaning protocols, health monitoring and lack of availability of qualified staff.

Eventually, we hope to return to some level of regular programming to meet the needs of all our Kidz Club families. A special thanks to those of you who have shown us great kindness and understanding during this difficult time. We’re doing everything we can to care for as many children as possible because we understand what a great disruption this has been for so many of our regular families. Hang in there! We miss you and hope to see you all back here soonJ

SACC will follow the safety guidelines recommended by the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. If there are changes to these guidelines, we will reflect those changes in our program.

The current guidelines are as follows:

  • Hand washing before and after each activity rotation

  • Temperature checks for all staff and participants as they enter into the building

  • Sanitizing our equipment before and after daily use

  • Staff/participants will wear masks while inside buildings and while outside when social distancing is difficult

  • Limited group sizes of fifteen or fewer participants, with consistent staff members where possible.

  • Any staff or participant will be sent home if they exhibit vomiting, a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or more, or other symptoms of infection

  • Per CDC guidance, any staff or participant will be sent home if they exhibit symptoms of coronavirus, including cough or shortness of breath or at least two of these symptoms: fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.

School-age Care – From the Stay Safe MN Safe Learning Plan Guide for 2020-21

Equitable and affordable school-age child care programs are essential to support working families and provide enrichment and care for students. Over 100,000 students across the state rely on school-based child care programs as their trusted child care provider.

Care for school-aged children, especially those children of workers in critical sectors, will continue to be crucial for frontline workers to continue to confront the pandemic. The state will continue to work with child care providers, school-age programs, schools, and all other child care settings to prioritize this need.

Executive Order 20-82 indicates that a school district or charter school that operates a hybrid or distance learning model “must provide school-aged care for Eligible Children at no cost during the time those children are not receiving instruction in the school building during regular school hours.”

This school-age care must be provided for school-age children age 12 and under who are children of critical workers in Tier I of the state critical worker list. Children of Tier I workers only will be cared for at no cost during the typical school hours. For more information about providing school-age care, including the list of Tier I workers, see the “School-age Care Programs in Schools” section of MDE’s 2020-21 School Year Planning Guidance.
