Educare - Contract Child Care
School Break Days
If you only need care for your child on school break days and do not need your child to attend on a weekly contracted basis during the school year, you would need to have enrollment paperwork for your child on file with an active account. Once you have an account set up then all you have to do is to contact the school-age manager one week in advance of the school break day to reserve a spot for your child.
The Rates Are:
$63.00 per day
$263.00 per week
The fee includes up to 10 hours of care per day, meals, field trips and activities. Payment is due in advance and will be charged according to the automatic payment option you have chosen. A statement showing your charges and automatic payment will be mailed to you.
(SMSC employees may qualify for a discounted rate.)
Field trips and special activities are planed based on the Prior Lake and Shakopee school break schedule, however if your child attends a different district with different days off they are still welcome to attend and join the children who are here in the before and after school Kindergarten program.
Weather Related Days Off From School
If you have an active account and your child comes for school break days, you can use our program for weather related days off as well. If your child's school is closed due to the weather and you need care for the day, call the Playworks customer care desk and ask for the Manager on Duty to see if there is space available. If your child's school is delayed or released early and you only need a couple of hours of care, you can check your child into Playtime, Playworks drop-off program. Playworks will not provide transportation to or from school for late start or early release due to weather if your child is not contracted for busing on a weekly basis.
