HCJFS-Child Care/Day care Services

I have a few question regarding applying for the daycare vouchers...

1) When should I apply for the program? (I'm due Feb 28,2012)

2) How do the program work ? (I'm a first time mom and have NO clue at all)

3) Do you like the program?

4) Do you have any rec's in case I get accepted?  

That's all i can think of for now...TIA

  • I'm not sure what daycare vouchers are.  How do you qualify to get them?  I'm don't think I've ever heard them discussed on this board.

  • You have to be accepted into the FB group by one of the the page administrators.  Do you have any mutual friends on FB that are a part of the group?  A mutual friend will need to "add" you and then one of the admins has to okay it.

  • My SIL receives the daycare vouchers because she adopted her children from the Hamilton county foster system.  My understanding of how the program works is as follows:

    You fill out an application after your child is born.  The program is based off of your/your spouse's income so you will need paycheck stubs to verify income. Based on your household income, they will give you vouchers for a percentage of your daycare costs and you are expected to make up the difference.  For example, if the center charges $200 per week and you're granted a voucher covering 70% of your costs, you'll pay $60 each week and the voucher will pick up the rest. 

    You will be required to use an approved in-home or center from the list they provide and the hours you are granted per day/week are based off of your work schedule.  You bring the vouchers to your provider, the provider fills out the vouchers for the days/hours your child is present then submits the to the county to receive that portion of their pay.  You make your portion of the payment to the provider on the same schedule as the other parents pay (weekly, monthly, etc).

    If you qualify, I think the program is worthwhile.  Their list of approved providers is extensive so you shouldn't have a problem finding someone you like if you do your homework.

    Here is the website with the application, etc.
