Are you a student parent studying in a vocational program, in high school, or taking courses from a community, technical, or tribal college? If so, you may qualify for help paying for child care through the Working Connections Child Care (WCCC) subsidy program!

This program subsidizes the cost of child care so you can focus on your education while your child receives high-quality care. If you are studying for a certificate or degree that results in an occupation, including programs like massage therapy, cosmetology, or welding at a community, technical, or tribal college, you qualify for WCCC subsidy. High school student parents also qualify for WCCC, with no copayment.

Your campus may offer an on-site child care program, but if not, staff at the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) are ready to help you find convenient and affordable child care.
