MSA Opens for Childcare

Beginning Monday, May 18th Marple Aftercare will open for emergency childcare services.  The State of Pennsylvania has granted us a waiver to open for the needs of the community.  The program is open to anyone who needs childcare because they are working and can't otherwise find adequate coverage (PA's criteria is listed below).  We are accepting limited numbers so that we may follow social distancing and offer a safe and clean environment to our customers.  

We ask that anyone who is sick, has been exposed to anyone sick, or has anyone at home who is at high risk to please not send their children to camp. We will be taking temperatures daily upon entry for both staff and children, frequent hand cleaning, and car line drop off and pick up only to limit exposure.

Our daily routine will include help with classwork, select activities to limit large groups or close interaction, distanced eating of lunch and snacks.

We look forward to serving the community in this time of need.


Pennsylvania Criteria for who is eligable for childcare:

Some schools, child care programs, and service organizations are supporting their communities by providing temporary or emergency child care services for the children of essential service providers such as first responders, healthcare workers, transit or food retail workers, and persons who do not have paid leave, cannot work from home, or do not have a family caregiver at home.
