Upstart Crow is considered an Approved Emergency Child Care Provider. As long as the State of Emergency continues we are approved to have children on site during school hours. The current date given for the end of the State of Emergency is March 3rd. The governor has typically waited until the last couple of days to extend the declaration. If we haven’t heard that she is extending the SoE by Friday, February 26th, we will plan on providing child care through Wednesday, March 3rd. If the declaration is extended, we will provide child care through Friday, March 19th. There will be no child care or camp during spring break. We will not be providing child care after spring break.
In Matinee Afternoon Only, we enjoy activities such as theatre games, outside time, themed arts & crafts, and weekly musical watch parties!
Utilizing effective safety tools such as masks, floor-taping, pool noodles, socially-distanced games, and more, Upstart Crow staff ensure students have the opportunity to experience the life-enriching benefits of the performing arts. And, importantly, our afternoon programming enables parents to focus on their own workplace and home obligations, confident that their children are safe, supported, and engaged all afternoon.
Parents must provide a lunch, snack, and water bottle.
*Students will have the opportunity to purchase snacks from our Snack Shack, a fundraiser benefiting the UCS Tuition Assistance Fund. This season, our Snack Shack will be cash-less. Any student Snack Shack funds should be deposited in advance to the students’s Snack Shack account, available HERE.
