Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation
The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) Education Department will have a limited opening of childcare services beginning June 15, 2020. The program is designed to meet the emergency childcare needs of Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation employees being called back to work at Nixyaawii Governance Center, Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center, Wildhorse Resort & Casino and Cayuse Technologies.
An application for emergency childcare for employees is available from the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Education Department. Everyone who needs emergency childcare will be required to complete an application. Those who have previously received childcare services are still required to submit an emergency childcare application. There are limited spaces available. Emergency childcare services will be provided for children 6 months to 12 years of age at the Nixyaawii Education Center and the Community Center (old gym), Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 4:00 pm with scheduled drop off and pick up times.
The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Education Department is committed to providing the safest environment possible for children during this pandemic. However, emergency childcare should be considered a last resort. Keeping your child home with family is the best alternative to emergency childcare in order to lessen the chances of exposure to COVID-19. These emergency childcare services are temporary and will end when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
Please contact Micki Fabian for an application at MickiFabian@ctuir.org or call her at 509-251-5807.
Applications can be completed digitally and returned via email.
