Check out these links for help with subsidized child care, and if you have any resources to add for your state, feel free to share them! :D

(This was posted before on the old boards, and it's now posted on the front page here as well. )

Daycare bills suck. Why not look into a child care subsidy program? Most subsidies provide assistance for parents who are working, going to school, or both. Single mothers and student mothers especially benefit from subsidy programs, which either pay the entire cost of daycare tuition or a large portion. Some of these programs even offer referral services, so that you can make sure your little one is in the best possible daycare. If your state is not listed here, contact your local department of social services and find out if any programs are available in your county. Some states do not have state-wide subsidy programs, but do offer more localized, county and city based programs.

The illinois link doesn't work. I went through the site but I think they no longer have the day care info posted.

www.ncchildcare.net Very informative site allows you to search for childcare centers throughout North Carolina based on various criteria, including Star Rating and whether they accept subsidized childcare.

Waldorf accepts DPW and CCIS in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

I dont know the website, but my son went to the waldorf school for daycare for a little while, thier rates are 800$ a month from 8am to 6pm, and i only paid 30$ a week with the subsidy. If any of you are familiar with waldorf, this is a wonderful deal!
