Child Care Assistance Program

The TCC Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) supports the educational success of eligible student-parents by providing access to certified, high-quality child care facilities.

By partnering with Child Care Management Services (CCMS), we're able to subsidize the cost of community-based child care services and support the participation and success of student-parents here at TCC. Initially, TCC's Child Care Assistance Program will serve approximately 125 eligible student-parents annually

Funding for the CCAP is made possible through the Department of Education.
