Child Care Subsidy Information

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Working Wonders​ offers a small child care subsidy to qualifying students. If you receive the child care subsidy, you can choose your child’s/children’s licensed center. Working Wonders pays a partial subsidy directly to the child care provider. You then pay the remaining cost.
