Colorado's statewide school closures have placed new burdens on parents, including finding childcare for those who are still working, and explaining COVID-19 to kids in an age-appropriate way.
The Emergency Childcare Collaborative (Link)

A 100% tuition credit will provide childcare to all essential workers until May 17.

  • If you are a family who meets the criteria above, fill out the application for child care here.

  • If you are a provider who is willing to open your facility to accommodate these critical workers you can apply here.

  • Note: Parents who have options to keep their children at home with a family member or have other arrangements are encouraged to use those. Emergency child care provided through the Collaborative is for when all other non-group care settings have been exhausted and families have no other options.
