  • Once a month, submit menus and attendance forms (Forms and Envelopes provided).
  • Have one of our staff visit with you at least 3 times per year while you are serving children a meal.
  • Attend One training session per year.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

You must:

  • Be a licensed or registered daycare/group home (daycare must be conducted in a current or previous private residence).
  • Care for at least one daycare child.

DONATIONS

General financial support is always welcome, as needs can vary in scope and urgency.
CCFP targets higher levels of reimbursement to low-income areas, and to daycare providers and children most in need. The reimbursements make the cost of daycare more affordable for many lower income families. Health and safety standards, training, and monitoring make CCFP an important component of quality child care, especially in family day care homes.
