Child Care Subsidy
We invest over 40% of our funding to assist parents and caregivers, who are working and/or attending school, with high-quality child care for their children 0-5. Families are able to choose a 4- or 5-star child care provider - either a child care center or family child care home. Child care providers are reimbursed per child at a rate set by the state. Parents must pay a fee of 10% of gross monthly income for all vouchers. Vouchers are available for full-time, part-time or wrap-around care for NC Pre-K.
