-----Daycare facilities----------------------

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services has released update guidelines for daycare facilities.

Boys & Girls Clubs Of Central Texas Launch Mission-Essential Day Camps At Ten Regional Locations; Announce Reduction In Fees, Daily Option.
KILLEEN, TEXAS - With the passage of the Coronavirus Aide, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and support from regional public and private sector funding partners, BGCTX Leaders announced today a reduction in previously published Mission-Essential Day Camp weekly fees.
“We have all watched the world around us change over the last couple of weeks, sometimes by the hour. These changes have created a great deal of uncertainty for our staff, adversely impacted our charitable income, and constrained our ability to serve the youth who need us most. Rather than sitting ideally by, we have been working hard to create youth development solutions for a new audience that needs Boys & Girls Clubs most – the youth of mission-essential families,” said Boys & Girls Club of Central Texas CEO Tiana Quick.
“Local school closures have created an unpredictable burden for those families who are still working every day to fulfill mission-essential roles.” With new levels of funding support in place and a geographically diverse offering of Day Camp sites, we stand ready and able to support the families on the front lines of the COVID-19 response in the communities we serve,” said Quick. We hope this reduction in weekly fees, and the offering of a daily fee option, will expand the accessibility of Day Camps to any and all mission-essential families who need school-aged child care.”

Beginning today, March 31, Mission Essential Day Camps will be available for youth in the region at a rate of $50 per week or $10 per day. Families interested in day camp services may enroll eligible youth online at bgctx.org/SupportDayCampsat or at the Club sites listed below. Day Camps will operate Monday-Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm until such time that a pandemic-related response to school-aged childcare is no longer required. BGCTX Day Camps are available for 5-12-year-olds at the following sites:
Clements Teen Center (ages 10-12) - 2900 East Elms Road, Killeen, TX 76542

**Nolanville child care information: Boys & Girls Club of Central Texas (BGCTX) has established a public private partnership with the City of Nolanville to provide childcare solutions for mission-essential employees important for supporting the infrastructure needed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning Monday, March 23, Boys & Girls Club will operate “day-camps” for 5-12 year old youth from this priority audience at no cost, in the following sites:
• Mary Marie Multi Use Center – 400 Gold Star Avenue, Nolanville TX 76559
• JW Sims Community Center – 408 10th Street Nolanville, Texas 76559
BGCTX will provide youth of mission-essential families with a safe place, positive adult supervision, exposure to traditional Boys & Girls Clubs youth development programs, and a minimum of two meals and a snack per day. Day Camps will adhere to Bell County’s 10+ gathering restrictions and follow CDC guidelines extended to child development agencies. Together BGCTX and City of Nolanville will observe rigid safety measures associated with disinfection, health screenings for participants and proper health care modeling.
Families interested in day camp services must enroll eligible youth online at www.bgctx.org/join) or at club sites, and submit proof of residency and mission essential employment status prior to day camp participation. At this time, in order to ensure compliance with COVID-19 related safety guidelines, BGCTX can only provide day camp services to 27 youth. Accordingly, day camp enrolment will be extended to families in the following priority audience order:
1. Youth of mission-essential families who support City of Nolanville’s COVID-19 response infrastructure – essential City staff and first responders.
2. Youth of mission-essential families who reside in Nolanville and support the region’s COVID-19 response – first responders, healthcare personnel, essential local government staff, and National Guard.
3. Youth of Nolanville residents employed by “essential business” as defined by Executive Order GA-08.
BGCTX Day Camps will operate Monday-Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 PM until such time that pandemic related emergency child care solutions are no longer required.
BGCTX leaders are exploring additional child support day camp service partnerships with regional municipal partners, private firms, and other stakeholder to ensure that youth have access to a safe place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
