We are working hard this summer for families, child care providers, employers, and all of you who support them. Be on the lookout for some exciting news about Child Care Answers later this month. In the meantime, take a look below at all of the resources we have available for you.

Indiana’s Build, Learn, Grow scholarship program is offering families of essential workers tuition scholarships for their children’s early care and education, summer learning, and before- and after-school programs. These are being offered by the Indiana Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning to help support Hoosier families in connecting to high-quality learning opportunities. Families classified as essential workers with qualifying income can receive scholarships for each child age 0-12 in their household. Scholarships will cover up to 80% of tuition for early care and education, summer learning and before- and after-school care from May-October 2021. Learn more or download one of the below flyers to share with those you serve.
