In collaboration with the Marin County Office of Education, the County of Marin and several other agencies, a new Marin County Emergency PopUp Childcare Program has been created to support health care workers, first responders, disaster service workers, and all other essential workers working or living in Marin while classroom instruction has been suspended during the COVID-19 public health emergency. K-12 education employees are considered essential workers and, as such, will have access to this childcare program.

To apply for this program, parents / guardians will first be required to fill out this survey. Space in these programs is limited. They would like each child to attend at least three times a week. The daily cut-off time for new placement is 4:00 pm. You will be notified via email within 1-2 business days. The notification email or call will come from your site administrator. IMPORTANT: To be guaranteed a spot, you must officially accept your space within 24 hours or the space will be released.

All child care centers follow social distancing, sanitation, and hygiene practices described in detail in a March 13 Public Health Advisory.

Fee schedules are listed below:

  • Effective April 1, fees for infant, toddler, and preschool programs are $1,554 per month. 
  • Effective April 6, fees for grades TK-5 programs are $24 per day; with a minimum of three days per week. Parents will be charged only for hours outside of the school day (7-8 a.m. or 3-7 p.m.);
  • No fees for grades 6-12. 

Tuition assistance may be available to those who qualify. Sites are open weekdays with varying hours. Drop-in child care is not being offered at any location. To apply for the program, review the program overview and complete the survey
