To ensure Arizona’s first responders, critical healthcare workers, and essential public sector employees have the support they need to continue combatting COVID-19, the Governor’s office has partnered with a variety of agencies to offer child care through Arizona Enrichment Centers.
The Kids Club program at Desert Meadows School has been approved as one of the few Arizona Enrichment Centers in the Laveen area to provide this service to essential workers who rely on childcare for their young children to be able to continue to work.
When school closures were first announced, Laveen’s Kids Club team immediately stepped up to provide a day camp experience to children whose parents are considered “essential workers.” This program provides structured activities in a safe, supervised environment for children in Grades Preschool – 6. Until the executive order is lifted, Laveen Kids Club will not provide childcare services to parents who are not considered essential workers as defined by the Governor’s executive order and have been encouraged to keep their children home.
We are proud that Laveen’s program can support the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected initiative and serve the families who are working the front lines during this state of emergency.
Qualifying families can find more information about this program at www.LaveenSchools.org/coronavirus or by calling our Kids Club office at 602-237-7058.
