Need Help Paying for Child Care?

Front Range Community College was recently selected for a federal grant program called CCAMPIS (Child Care Access Means Parents in School). The funding will help cover monthly child care costs for our students who have children under the age of 12.

We can help pay for up to 60% of your child care costs! To receive funding your child care provider must be:

  • State licensed
  • Nationally accredited OR in the process of seeking accreditation within the next three years
  • OR a Colorado Shines Level 3 or higher, OR in the process of seeking a Level 3 or higher

If the child care provider is a before/after school program, the provider must be state licensed.

If your current child care provider does not meet these requirements you can choose a provider that does and has partnered with FRCC. See list of child care providers.
