We're here to help
The cost of child care/preschool can be very daunting to some families. We encourage families to apply for State of NJ child care voucher funding as a way of easing their financial burden.
For many families, this is an important first step that will enable mom or dad to secure affordable childcare coverage so that they may go to work or school. In many cases, with the help of a subsidy, child care can cost as little as a $5/day co-pay.
Child Care Connection is the agency located in Trenton, NJ that has been given the job of screening prospective Mercer-County families for benefits in any one of three voucher programs. State funding is limited and first-come, first-served, so act quickly if you wish to apply. If you reside in a county other than Mercer, we can still accept your voucher! Simply go through your county's CCR&R.
The Income Eligibility Chart varies year-to-year, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, many rules have relaxed so that more families qualify. More information about the program, as well as how to contact CCC is located HERE. Parent(s) living at home with the child MUST be either working or going to school full-time and be able to provide documentation of same.
WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW DAYCARE/PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS IN THE AREA THAT DOES NOT CHARGE A RATE DIFFERENTIAL ONCE A VOUCHER IS OBTAINED. YOU WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR SUBSIDY AND THE GOING RATE. WE TAKE YOUR SUBSIDY AS PAYMENT IN FULL.
