Mankato Public schools say health care workers, first responders and other emergency service providers in need of child care are encouraged to complete the online registration form. This no cost programming is offered from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday:

  • Franklin Elementary School, 1000 North Broad Street, Mankato
  • Monroe Elementary School, 441 Monroe Avenue, North Mankato

Bus companies will contact registered families who have requested bus transportation.

In an effort to assure that adequate and sufficient care is provided each day for families using this service, registration for next day participants will close at 12 p.m. each day. This will allow enough time to allocate staffing, provide food service and meet transportation needs for families being served. Registrations received after 12 p.m. will be processed with a start date for child care two days later.
