ENROLLMENT - Airport Families

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is a regional transportation hub that employs a large 24/7 workforce. The Airport Commission recognizes that this workforce needs dependable, quality child care that responds to their changing and rotating work hours. The Commission has supported Palcare since the concept of a flexible, day-and-night child care center was first explored. Their ongoing partnership makes priority enrollment, flexible scheduling and non-traditional hours possible for all Airport Families.

If you are a parent or guardian whose employer is located at SFO and you are interested in child care, fill out a Wait List Application and be sure to include information about your employer.  Please submit the application with a photocopy of your SFO badge.  The wait list fee is waived for Airport Families, and your child will receive priority enrollment.  When a space opens that fits your family’s needs, you will be contacted as soon as possible.

SFO provides a Tuition Assistance Program for employees that work there.  Based on income, families may be eligible for assistance in paying tuition.  Apply by filling out a SFO Tuition Assistance Application and submit it at the same time as your Wait List application and badge photocopy. Families are required to provide documentation upon enrollment to verify their annual income, and a current copy of the SFO badge.  More specific information is available from the Enrollment Directors.

If you’d like more information about enrollment, please contact Lauren Haas for children 0 – 10 months old (lauren@palcare.org) or Tina Hardley for children age 10 months to 5 years old (tina@palcare.org).
