During the time of COVID-19 and Distance Learning, MVWSD has partnered with providers Right at School, YMCA and Newton to provide on-campus, fee-based childcare, with prioritization for essential workers. Care includes support with schoolwork.

Who can enroll:

MVWSD students in grades TK-5 may enroll. Spaces will be filled in order of priority starting with children of full-time essential workers. These priorities are informed by the state of California’s Essential Workers.


The providers offer program activities while maintaining as best as possible all social distancing and safety requirements such as mask-wearing; frequently washing hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer; following proper respiratory etiquette; and excluding children and staff from the program with contagious symptoms such as fever or cough.  Group sizes are small and self-contained. 

Please understand that although our providers will take precautions to limit exposure to COVID-19, they and MVWSD provide no assurances and cannot guarantee that you or your child will not be exposed to the virus or become ill. Please contact the providers with specific questions about their programs’ health and safety protocols.
