About Before & After School Care

The program features:
  • Trained and Qualified Staff
  • Tutorial Advantages
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Interaction with Other Children
  • Outdoor Activities
  • Special Theme Activities
  • Afternoon Snack

Free Child Care BACK TO TOP
You may qualify for assistance from the Department of Human Services for Child Care!

1) Who is eligible for child care assistance from the state?
• Low-income working families
• TANF clients in education, training, or other work-related activities approved by their caseworkers • Teen parents (under age 20) in elementary or high school, or a GED program
• Low income families who are in school or training and are not receiving TANF cash assistance. (Must work at least 10 hours per week if they are in a college degree program.) Occupational vocational training, GED, ABE, ESL, and other below post-secondary education programs do not have a work requirement for the first 24 months. High school does not have a work requirement.

2) What does “low income” mean?
Your family’s countable income must be below the following guidelines

Income Must Be Below:
Family Size: 2 - $2,334
Family Size: 3 - $2,934
Family Size: 4 - $3,534
Family Size: 5 - $4,134
Family Size: 6 - $4,734
Family Size: 7 - $5,334
Family Size: 8 - $5,934

To determine your countable income, the gross wages paid by an employer are added to your other income (such as any government benefits, child support you receive, or self employment income.) Any child support you pay is subtracted from your income.

3) Must I be the child’s parent to qualify for the program?
No. A child’s legal guardian or other relatives caring for the child are also eligible and should fill out an application form. Foster parents can receive child care assistance from the Department of Children and Family Services.

4) How old can the child be?
All children under age 13 are eligible. Children 13 or older are eligible if they are under court supervision or have written documentation from a medical provider stating that they are physically or mentally incapable of caring for themselves.

If you think you may qualify please ask for an application, or if you have any additional questions call Inara Canino @ 708/749-4900 x18.
