Your business relies on people. Happy people do a better job. We can help you make your employees and their families happy by developing high quality, fun, safe, educational childcare options that meet their scheduling needs. Beginning with a needs assessment, we will work closely with you to develop a program for your employee parents, including childcare tuition discounts, subsidy management programs, guaranteed or priority access, back up care, summer programs, after school programs and non-traditional care programs.
At every Playcare location we guarantee our experienced teachers and staff provide a warm, nurturing environment where children can participate in safe, fun developmentally appropriate activities, giving your employees peace of mind so they can focus on business.
As a corporate partner your employees will be given Priority Access and will move to the front of any waiting list and have first choice of any spaces available in any Playcare center. The enrollment fee will be waived for all of your employees.
Your company may purchase slots at 20% off the posted price. This will ensure that there is space available for your employees with no wait, no hassle and no problem. The state of Oklahoma has a licensed capacity rule and we can never have more children in the building than our licensed capacity. Each child occupies a slot. You would be ensuring that we would have slots available for your employees for the days and times you specify. This would be especially helpful for ensuring that a slot would be available for back up care or on Saturdays when other child care options might not be available.
Your company employees would be eligible for a 10% discount but they must call ahead to ensure that there are slots available. Of course we would give them Priority Access and move them to the front of the waiting list but no assurance can be made that there would be space at that time.
Playcare offers before and after school care in Lawton and Cache with bus transportation by area public schools. SmartStart#6, Smart Start #5 and Smart Start #2 are open 5:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Smart Start #1 located in Cache is open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Full day summer camp is available for school age children at all four locations, Monday through Friday. Care is also available all day on days out of school. All meals are provided at no extra charge.
Playcare is responsive to the needs of the companies we partner with. Currently some Smart Starts open at 5:00 a.m. but the general rule is centers are open 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for children six weeks to 12 years old. If your needs assessment signifies a need for more hours or Sunday care, Playcare is willing to work with you to meet these needs.
Special Event Care
Childcare can be offered during conventions, conferences, parties and other special events providing a convenient alternative for participating families who require care during such events.
Your company employees would be eligible for a 10% discount off our posted price for a full time program. If more than 10 families from your company enroll in a program, they will receive a 15% discount off our posted full and part time programs plus the $5 discount for paying on Monday for the week to follow. If your company agrees to corporate pay or payroll deduct you will be entitled to a 20% discount on a full time program.
This program combines a childcare tuition discount provided by Playcare with a subsidy provided by employers, thus further reducing the cost of childcare for your employees. Subsidies can improve the consistency and quality of care children receive by enabling parents to afford stable and higher quality childcare arrangements.
