Childcare Assistance

Childcare Assistance

The college provides childcare assistance (subsidy payments) to help eligible students with childcare needs.

  • Day care providers must be licensed centers or registered homes through the State of North Carolina. Applicants may choose their own childcare providers.
  • Payment is made directly to the daycare provider monthly after an invoice is received. Students are required to turn in weekly attendance sheets with instructor's signatures. Lack of proof of attendance results in loss of subsidy.

If you are interested in being considered for Childcare Services, please complete the Childcare Application and return it based on the guidelines on the bottom of the Childcare Application.
