Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Partners:
The Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe is providing financial assistance for child care through our School Readiness Program.
If you or someone you know needs help to pay child care costs, please submit an application at
Currently, there are waivers in place that relax the requirements for applying for services. The waivers allow:
  • Individuals who are unemployed and seeking work to submit an application
  • Individuals who have seen a decrease in the number of hours they work each week can submit an application
Some parents may not be aware of these waivers and think that they do not qualify to apply for assistance. It is important to submit an application and our family support services team will make the determination of eligibility upon review of all required documentation.
