Just like it sounds,HourKids offers pay-by-the-hour care for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children. Hourly care is available on a walk-in or reservation basis. You can reserve care for important dates that you know of in advance, or you can drop in and pay only for what you need.
Whether you are a parent that works outside the home, your regular care provider isn't available, or you are looking for a fun place to drop the kids off so you can have lunch and run a few errands, we have the flexibility and availability you need, right when you need it.
Walk-in Care Rates
Children ages 16 months to 11 years: $13.00/ per child, per hour, up to 5 hours/full day (5 hours or more): $70
Children ages 6 weeks to 15 months: $15.00/ per child, per hour, up to 5 hours/full day (5 hours or more): $80
You time... shopping...date nights?
Childcare needs are unique for every family. Sometimes you need just a couple of hours without the kids so you can run some errands, make a conference call, go to appointments or enjoy a date night! Even if you're visiting on vacation and need somewhere to drop the kids off for a bit, we're ready for you. Regardless of why you may need walk-in care, HourKids can help. We truly are there when you can't be.
Back up care
Hour Kids is here for you when unforeseeable child care needs arise. Your nanny may be sick, your home daycare provider could go on vacation, or Grandma and Grandpa just can't help on a certain day. These situations leave families with few options, and can result in running out of PTO early in the year. That's where HourKids steps in, bridging the care gap until things are back to normal. As a fully licensed, full -service child care center, we can accommodate your family's changing care needs on any temporary basis with ease.
School Release Days
Each school district has several school closure days per year, some are pre-scheduled and some are weather related. HourKids provides special school-age programming and staff trained in providing a fun and structured day so parents and guardians can work. Like other school release options, we don't require a lengthy pre-registration or a set schedule. If you only need a day here or there, or just a few hours, HourKids can help your children enjoy those days more, taking the scramble out of your schedules.
Please note: ALL children must be registered with HourKids in order to be accepted into care. Registering is easy, visit www.hourkidsmn.com/online-registration.html Registration can also be completed at check-in on your first day of care. Expect to spend 15 minutes completing the registration information.
HourKids is not responsible for soiled, damaged or lost items. Please label all personal belongings with your child's first and last name. Toys, sippy cups, pacifiers (except infants), etc should be left at home.
Parents MUST pick up their child within 30 minutes if HourKids calls for illness or behavioral concerns. If you are called to pick up your child, you will be refunded for any remaining pre-paid care time.
