Childcare Options for Healthcare Workers and First Responders

March 24, 2020

During this time of great need in Rockland County, Child Care Resources of Rockland, Rockland BOCES, and our eight school districts are committed to helping emergency care workers continue to do their job. For the greater good of all, the school districts in Rockland County are proud to open their doors to provide childcare for children ages 5-12 for healthcare workers and first responders (police, fire, EMS, corrections officers and all public health workers) with no other childcare options.


While final details are being worked out, we ask that if you are an emergency care worker living in Rockland to please fill out the survey linked here. Those who would like to participate must provide proof of employment (such as work ID) and is provided regardless if your child attends a private school or a public school. Hours of available care will be from 8 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday.


For more information please contact Child Care Resources of Rockland at or leave a message at 845-425-0009 x0. While we are working remotely during this health crisis, we are monitoring our emails and phone messages.
