CHICO, Calif.  - The Chico Area Recreation and Park District or C.A.R.D. are offering childcare options for working parents once the new school year begins.

Ann Willman, General Manager at C.A.R.D, says they came up with some care options at some school sites to provide some opportunities for supervision and assistance during the school day as well as after school care. 

Willman says this is open to students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

"During the morning time when children would normally be in school, we will offer assistance connecting them to their classroom responsibilities. The children will be taught by the wonderful Chico Unified teachers and our staff will be there to support them during the distance learning," said Willman.

Willman says there is some concern because they will be on school sites but says they are following the guidelines and making sure the students are safe.

C.A.R.D. will use Emma Wilson Elementary, Shasta Elementary, Marigold, and the C.A.R.D. Pleasant Valley Recreation Center.

Each school will have room for about 40 to 50 students, they will be broken up into groups to allow for social distancing and masks will also be required.

Willman says they've been working with the Butte County Public Health Department.

Willman says, "Parents are relieved that there is an option for them, not everyone has the flexibility to work from home and make sure their kids get the education they need. Our goal was to at least offer a solution. We realize its not the solution for everyone but just that opportunity being able to at least provide some options for families."

This is all set to begin on the first day of classes, on Aug. 16. 

It costs about $100 a week and the after school option is another $55.

The money pays the staff who will be at these locations.
