|Entire month of January||$725/child|
|January up to 3 days per week||$450/child**|
* Thanks to a team of committed individuals on the island of Hawaiì, $450 of each child’s monthly tuition is subsidized so parents need only pay the $275 balance. The $450 per child is covered by a grant, using funds from CAREs Act.
**If selecting this option, your child may attend a maximum of 3 days each week, in the month of January. To ensure we maintain an appropriate staff to student ratio, our on-site staff will request a schedule of which days your child is expected to attend at the start of the month.
For our Waimea location, you may also email your child’s January school schedule to email@example.com.
Effective January 1, 202
To help maintain our student to staff ratios, walk-in registrations will not be accepted at our Distance Learning Support Centers. Consequently, online registration will close at 1pm on Thursdays and reopen at 8am on the first business day of the following week. A student must be registered in our database before a center can accept him or her.
If a DLS Center has reached its capacity, then a waitlist will be available.

Distance Learning Support Center
Our Distance Learning Support Centers are Super Study Halls! They are structured to provide a safe and productive work environment for School Age (Grades K-4) children. Daily agendas at each learning center are structured to accommodate the various school schedules of our students. In addition to following the CDC and Hawai`i Department of Health guidelines for health and safety, each location includes:
- Kama`aina Kids staff to keep students safe, provide support and encouragement, and supervise children during Distance Learning assignments
- Adequate spacing for students to remain safe and optimize their focus during Distance Learning hours
- Small social groups of no more than 13 students
- Supervised Study Hall
Once Distance Learning is done for the day, enrichment activities are provided by Kama`aina Kids. Activities include Arts & Crafts, Cooperative Games, Simple Science, and more!
Please provide the following from home for each child’s Distance Learning experience:
- Electronic device, such as a laptop, tablet, or iPad
- Headphones for the device
- Personal “hotspot” for your child’s device, if available
- Pencil or pen to write with (if applicable)

General Safety Procedures
Our School Age Programs are structured to abide by the guidelines for childcare facilities set forth by the CDC and Hawaii’s Department of Human Services. These measures include:
- Every morning, temperature checks are conducted for all students and staff. Anyone registering a temperature above 100.4°F will not be allowed into program area.
- Access to program facilities is restricted to registered students and Kama`aina Kids employees scheduled to work. Drop-off and Pick-up procedures are developed for each location to minimize contact between program participants and the general public.
- All locations have a specified maximum capacity appropriate to the size of the facility and to ensure the total group size falls within CDC, DHS, and county guidelines. If a site reaches its maximum capacity, it will stop accepting new registrations.
- **Low Student to staff ratio: The number of children per group is not to exceed 9 students, for each Kama`aina Kids employee. Groups are stable and will always be separated by at least 6 feet.
- Frequent handwashing with soap and water, and for at least 20 seconds at a time (at least once per hour)
- Commonly used surfaces and equipment will be cleaned and disinfected multiple times per day.
- Once Distance Learning is done for the day, on-site program includes Arts & Crafts, Cooperative Games, Simple Science, Music, and more!
- Distance Learning Support Centers are available for students currently enrolled in grades K-5, as of August 17, 2020.
- **On June 10, 2020, Hawaii’s Department of Human Services—who set licensing guidelines for childcare providers—repealed the required student to staff ratio of 9:1. DHS determined that childcare providers should be allowed to restore the ratios that were in place, prior to the state’s emergency proclamation, as of June 11, 2020. All other guidelines for cleaning, handwashing, sanitation, and distancing between groups must remain in place.
