Child Care/Friendship Connection
Information about Friendship Connection and childcare services during the transition to in-person learning.
When your child(ren) returns to in-person school, you are able to register them for before-school and after-school care. Please note - we will accept Friendship Connection schedules as space allows. We may utilize a waitlist as we hire more staff. Families will be notified of registration approval via email.

COVID-19 changes and safety procedures
Friendship Connection will place students in "pods" to limit exposure. This is in accordance with the MN Department of Health childcare guidance and the 2020-21 School Year Planning Guidance. Staff and youth will wear masks, follow social distancing guidelines, and sanitize surfaces and materials regularly.
All childcare providers have been asked to create and share a COVID-19 preparedness plan. The Friendship Connection plan can be found here. This is a live document and will be updated as new guidance and information about COVID-19 is available.
