Essential Support Childcare Scholarship Program

With 17 locations on Oahu and 4 on Maui, our facilities to care for keiki from 6 weeks to 5 years of age are located in areas where parents both work and live. Our preschools continue to remain open to help support essential workers and have adopted educational learning tools specifically to address the COVID-19.

In conjunction with the Castle Foundation, we are proud to offer SCHOLARSHIPS of up to $200 per child per month to assist with childcare fees for the children of Hawaii’s essential workers.

School Age K-5

Essential Support Childcare
April 1 – April 30, 2020
With the closure of elementary schools starting mid-March, we recognized a burden placed on our essential workers in being able to contribute to the health and welfare of our beautiful state.

In response, we have created an all-day program to address this need for keiki grades K-5 and have teamed with our preschool division to provide the necessary facilities to provide this service. Learn more by clicking here
