Tuition Assistance

Children, Inc. realizes the importance of high quality early childhood education and care for all children. Mindful of the financial strain tuition may place on a family’s budget; fees for all programs are based on a sliding scale, determined by income and family size.

Additionally, the State Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) and United Way Tuition Assistance program offer assistance for families who meet their established guidelines.

The following are current income guidelines for tuition assistance for Children, Inc. Early Care and Education Centers, and are subject to change.  See below for contact information for assistance in applying for tuition assistance. Please Note: School Age Services have a different set of guidelines and these guidelines do not apply to School Age programs.

State Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) is available for child care, and determinations are made by State Intake Workers. For example, income and family size are some of the factors that help determine if a family is eligible for assistance. If qualifications are met, the worker helps a family complete a few simple forms to secure tuition assistance.

  • Step One: Call the Children, Inc. program to find out about space availability and to work with the director about your specific child care needs.
  • Step Two: Call the Child Care Council of Kentucky at 1-800-809-7076 and discuss the process for receiving State Child Care Assistance.

United Way child care tuition assistance is available for families who qualify based on income, family size, and other factors. Individuals must be working or in school. A family may qualify for State Assistance and for United Way assistance, with both funding sources applying funds to reduce the family’s portion of the cost. Families who do not qualify for State funding may qualify for United Way funding.

  • Step One: Call the Children, Inc. program to find out about space availability and to work with the director about your specific child care needs.
  • Assistance will be awarded to qualifying families, provided United Way funds are still  available and have not exhausted.

Families must stay current on their assigned tuition co-payment or assistance may be withdrawn.
