YMCA School Age Child Care Information
It is the intention of the River Valley YMCA and school district to provide high quality care to students grades K-5. Care will be available to all families enrolled in both Shakopee IHD and Shakopee Online programs. It is our goal that everyone has access to care 5 days a week.
Shakopee Elementary Schools will transition to Distance Learning beginning on November 18, 2020. Below is a summary of district childcare available. If you are currently enrolled and need to update your schedule, please reach out the YMCA directly.

Location: The River Valley YMCA will provide care for students in grades K-5 at Central Family Center (505 Holmes Street South). Children and families can enter through door D. Students should bring their own water bottles and snacks. A free district breakfast and lunch will also be provided. Students will be able to participate in distance learning and should bring devices, chargers and any other supplies they need to participate. Masks are required. Social distancing, hand washing, and all other department of health guidance will be followed.
Rates: Rates are based on one-full day of care and for each child that rate is $40. There are special discounts for Shakopee Public Schools staff members, as well as free care, for Tier 1 Essential Employees. The YMCA also has scholarships for families in need. Please contact the YMCA for specific details by calling 952-230-6661.
If you are a Tier 1 Essential Employee, you must sign up for the YMCA before receiving Tier 1 discount application. During registration, you may be asked to enter credit card information or pay an enrollment fee. These fees will be reimbursed/waived once this application is filled out and your family meets the requirements for Tier 1 rates. Please note that the Minnesota Department of Education, under Executive Order 20-94, updated the guidance and criteria related to Tier 1 discounts and eligibility. The update can be found here.
