Child Care Resources

Dallas College provides a multifaceted and flexible approach to child care services for college students.

Our solutions for child care are designed to ensure that you have access to high-quality child care options that will have long-term benefits for both you and your child. We want to remove barriers that could prevent you from completing your educational goals.

Connect with child care resources to get the support you need while you reach for your dreams. Check out these options:


Complete the Student Care Form to be contacted with information about child care assistance for Dallas College students. It is the first step in accessing services.


In addition to help in the form of a child care voucher (if you qualify) through our Working Wonders program*, we can also provide you with a list of licensed child care centers near you to select from.

*Note: Students pursuing an Associate of Applied Science degree or certificate in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program may qualify for the Working Wonders program — an option that grants eligible Dallas College students help in the form of a limited child care subsidy (voucher) and other services.


Child Care is available on campus at our Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield and El Centro locations. Dallas College students who meet the income eligibility requirements can receive services free of charge (as space permits).
