School-Age Subsidy Program

Montgomery County is providing $5.6 million in tuition assistance for full-day, school-age child care services offered by licensed child care centers, registered family child care homes, or letter of compliance programs located in the County.

Eligibility for this tuition assistance will be determined separately and differently from existing subsidy programs. The funds will be administered by the Department of Health and Human Services? Office of Children, Youth and Families.

To be eligible for these services, a child must:

  • live in the County,

  • be enrolled in MCPS, and

  • actively attend a full-day child care program.

    In addition, their families must have:

  • income levels at or below 400 percent of the federal poverty level, and
  • applied for state and local child care subsidies.

    What people are saying about us

    Hi Bob

    On a personal note, by the way, I've been meaning to email you about how wonderful an organization you run. You have been so incredibly generous with donating time and resources, and it is clear by your communications in emails that your motivation is really all about the kids. I think that this is a very rare thing for a business as large as yours, and I am extremely appreciative that you're part of the SSFS and Montgomery County communities. We'll be moving to Providence, RI in July, and I can only hope that there will be a childcare organization at my kids' next school that is half as wonderful as KAH.

    Anyway, thanks again for everything.
