Minneapolis Kids Childcare for the 2021 School Year

Due to current low enrollment, Whittier Minneapolis Kids is currently on “Pause” for opening at Whittier.

We understand how important before- and/or after-school care is for families though, and there are other options available. You can access care at Lyndale Minneapolis Kids. The Lyndale Minneapolis Kids Coordinator is Angie Parker, and Whittier and Lyndale often combine for Non-School Days and summer programming. Angie is familiar with many youth and staff from Whittier Minneapolis Kids.

Minneapolis Kids and transportation is available through MPS. Families would need to arrange transportation through their home school. We can be reached at 612-668-3890 or via email at mpls.kids@mpls.k12.mn.us for any questions.

Until there is more interest/need for MPLS Kids at Whittier, Nichole will currently be supporting Bancroft Minneapolis Kids.

Again, we apologize for this inconvenience and we know how difficult this news is to hear. While the re-opening of your Minneapolis Kids site is paused, your contract request will remain in the system. Our hope is to be able to see you and your family at school again, and we will continue to work towards that. When we are able to re-open your site, you will be contacted to see if you would like to move forward with enrollment at that time.
