***UPDATED 9/16*** There are still many spots available and scholarship funds. Friendly House is working hard to make this accessible to all. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Friendly House if you are interested.***

Chapman Families, Friendly House is pleased to let you know that the registration for our Distance Learning Support Program 2020 is open. We are planning on starting in-person distance learning support on Monday, September 14th, 2020. Due to COVID-19, we are opening at reduced hours. We will be open from 7:45am–3pm Monday–Thursday and 7:45am–noon on Fridays. These reduced hours will allow time for additional cleaning and planning time for the teachers as well as staff meetings. For information on COVID-19 rules for childcare and Early Childhood Education providers click here. 

Full and partial scholarships are available for families who qualify. Even if you fall into a higher bracket on the sliding fee scale, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship if your designated rate seems unaffordable for your family. We are asking all families who request scholarship assistance to also apply for Employment Related Daycare (ERDC) through the Department of Human Services (DHS) to help offset the impact on our scholarship budget. You can find information on ERDC and apply by following this link.  If you are planning to apply for a scholarship please email scholarships@friendlyhouseinc.org.

Scholarships can not be processed without a completed application and supporting documentation.

We currently have staff for 40 kids to participate and will be adding more space as we hire additional staff.

We are also working on a remote distance learning support model for families who do not need childcare but would like help with their student’s online lessons and assignments. We will send out more information once that program is ready to launch.

Friendly House is looking forward to supporting your family in these unprecedented times.

Please let Dan Hupala know if you have any questions, dhupala@friendlyhouseinc.org or 503-935-5282.
