Child Care

National Resources

If you qualify as a “low income family”:

Early Head Start
Early Head Start is a child development program for low-income families. Each Early Head Start program is responsible for determining its’ own eligibility criteria. Family income is one key factor in determining eligibility. The federal poverty guidelines (http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/) are used to evaluate family income. Early Head Start programs may elect to target their services to a particular population to best meet the unique needs of families and children in their community. Please contact the EHS program in your area (http://eclkc.ohs.acf.hhs.gov/hslc/HeadStartOffices) for specific information about how to enroll in your local Early Head Start.

Head Start
The Head Start Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), provides grants to local private, nonprofit and public agencies to provide child care services to low-income families. Local Head Start programs are authorized to accept a certain percentage of children whose family incomes are above the poverty level and, under certain conditions, pregnant women. HHS provides on its website a Head Start Program Locator Tool.

Child Care and Development Fund
The Child Care and Development Fund, a program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, provides child care grants each year to state, tribal, and U.S. territory governments to assist low-income families. The program uses vouchers and provider contracts to provide subsidized child care to eligible families, which include parents and the primary caregivers of children 12 years of age and under, or disabled persons under 19 years of age. Eligible applicants are employed, enrolled in a job training or education program, or are under court supervision directives that require child care. HHS provides state and tribal contacts on its website. Local departments of social services can also provide information about the program.

Other Tips for Affordable Childcare

ChildcareCenter.us
http://childcarecenter.us/
The Child Care Center website is the largest directory for childcare services in the nation, with over 250,000 childcare centers, home daycare providers, nannies, and babysitters to give you the best choices possible for your child’s care. Use this resources to identify available providers in your state.

Care.com
https://www.care.com
Care.com is the world’s largest online destination for care. We connect families with great caregivers and caring companies to help you be there for the ones you love. Care.com provides a database for caregivers (e.g. babysitters, nannies, daycare centers). On this website, parents can post the job (including descriptions of your needs for child care, age of your child, any special requirements). You can also search for caregivers in your area and review the profiles of potential caregivers.

Childcareaware.org and Daycareproviders.com help you search for childcare providers in your area as well as guides on what to look for in each childcare

Local Church Affiliations: Another great option is to approach your local church about after school care or extended daycare hours. Usually, they will offer church members free care or very cheap assistance. Most of the time these pre-schools and daycare have much less strict requirements than a Government Daycare Assistance program. This is a great alternative to finding a home daycare or after school program that can end up costing upwards of $150 a week.

In-home childcare can be a cheaper option, as well as scheduling your classes in blocks. So you may only have two to three blocks a week that you need childcare.

Meet-up Groups: Also, look into Meet-up Groups (meetup.com) and look for categories including parenting, babysitting co-ops, and childcare.

Child Support

According to the Federal Government, every child is entitled to receive financial assistance from both parents. It is important to secure this as soon as possible after giving birth.

Here are what steps need to be taken:
1. The baby’s father calls your state’s child support department to receive information on how to acknowledge paternity. Typically, the father will have to attain a paternity affidavit or by way of court order in order to gain parental rights and responsibilities.
2. You and the baby’s father will then visit: DC Child Support Services
