COVID-19 Childcare

We are pleased to announce a childcare solution for our colleagues!

Saint Francis Healthcare System has coordinated with licensed childcare providers in the area to offer you childcare during this difficult time. This is being offered to Saint Francis colleagues only, and is at NO COST. The staff of these facilities are licensed and qualified as well as background checked.

There are currently 32 openings at the Clippard Elementary School at 2880 Hopper Road in Cape Girardeau. If we fill these openings, more will be provided immediately at another location.

  • This service is available only when the colleague is working a scheduled shift at a Saint Francis facility. It is not available for those working from home.
  • The age range for children will be from 3-10 years old
  • Care will be provided Monday through Friday from 7 am to 5 pm
  • Breakfast and lunch will be provided by Cape Public Schools
  • We are practicing social distancing. Each room will have 8 children and 2 adults.
  • No cost to the colleague
  • On-site screening will be provided by Saint Francis for everyone entering
