New Childcare Opportunity

Posted On: 6/29/2021

The York County School Division has long recognized the importance of ensuring families have access to high quality childcare when students are not in school. We are pleased to share that the division will be awarding a new contract for childcare provided at our elementary schools.

Beginning this fall, Right at School, a national recognized student enrichment provider, will be the division’s childcare partner. Right at School was selected from among three final candidates through the county’s competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process. The committee’s goal was to select a provider who will:

  • provide meaningful, engaging and fun activities for our students
  • establish channels for open, frequent and ongoing communication with schools and the division
  • provide the most affordable options for childcare for families, including discounts for military, YCSD staff and free/reduced families

The summer childcare program will continue to be operated by Champions as the division prepares for the transition to our new partner. Champions will provide families enrolled in the summer program and pre-enrolled for the fall program with additional information in the coming days.

Family interest opportunities will be scheduled by Right at School later in July. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit Right At School's website for more information about their organization and dynamic curriculum. We look forward to enhancing the educational experience of our students and families through this new partnership.
