Announcement (April 2, 2020)- Grin & Grow Child Care is temporarily expanding the ages of children admitted into its long running program. We will now temporarily welcome children up to 12 years old. Cost is $15.50 per unit which is for 5 hours of care.
We are committed to this temporary change only until April 30. There is a possibility that We may extend this into May but that is yet to be determined. Our goal is to be able to accommodate all families, especially working parents who are providing essential services to our community during the covid-19 crisis.
We are taking the covid-19 crisis very seriously right now and hope that everyone is healthy. Grin & Grow will stay open until we are recommended to close by the county health department. We do not know if or when this might happen but we will keep you as up to date as possible. We are advising parents to keep their children at home if they are not working and they can call the office (319-236-2063) with questions. As always, we are providing children with best practices in child care for virus protection. We are taking the extra step of checking temperatures when children arrive and we have implemented additional sanitizing throughout the day. We will let you know as soon as possible if anything changes.
