Looking for Early Child Care and Education?

SEARCH FOR PROGRAMS!

Early childhood experiences, ages birth to 5, provide the building blocks essential to a child’s long-term success. Across Southwest Virginia and in your community, there are many opportunities for your child to be part of a high-quality child care program that promotes learning and development to ensure children have a strong start. Early child care and education services are provided across a diverse array of settings, including Child Care Centers, Family Day Homes, Head Starts, and School Systems (VPI). Navigating your choices can be difficult, but United Way of Southwest Virginia has one way to help. While we cannot enroll your child in a program or make recommendations about the best choice, we can connect you to programs in your area.

ASSISTANCE TO PAY FOR PROGRAMS

Child Care Subsidy Program

The Child Care Subsidy Program assists families in paying child care costs for children under age 13 who are not eligible to attend public school during the part of the day when public education is available, or children with special needs under age 18 who reside with the applicant. If you are eligible and are approved for services, the Subsidy Program can pay a portion of your child care costs directly to the child care provider. To apply for subsidy childcare, please visit www.commonhelp.virginia.gov.
