Essential Support Childcare

To address the need that many essential workers have for childcare during the coronavirus crisis, Kama’aina Kids 22 Preschool locations across Oahu and Maui not only continue to offer child care for infants through preschool, but also add support services to school aged children to families in essential service roles and those who need to work. If you work in essential services and/or continue to work even from home, and your regular childcare options are unavailable to you, you are eligible to enroll your child on a space available basis in the Kama’aina Kids location and program that is most convenient for you.

We are extremely grateful to both Hawaii Community Foundation and the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation for their generous financial support. We also want to thank the Department of Human Services for temporarily expanding eligibility to help support our families. This now allows us to provide tuition support and scholarship programs to families for up to 6 months.
