Child Care

If you cannot afford child care, payment assistance is available to parents who meet eligibility requirements. Check out the Parent Resources section of our website for details.

If you are a child care provider, or wish to become one, check out the Licensed Provider resources.

If you are not required to be licensed because you are related to the child or provide care in the child's home, but take care of a child who receives assistance, refer to the Unlicensed Provider section for payment details.

We partner with the Michigan Department of Education to provide child care assistance, billing and payments.
