    Daycare Funding

    I believe each state differs in regards to grants or funding. Which state do you live in?

        Louisiana Childcare Funding and Government Assistance

        DSS funds contracts with child care resource and referral agencies which perform a variety of services for the families and child care providers in this state. Resource and referral agencies educate parents on how to recognize good child care and refer them to child care facilities operating near their home or workplace. They also help to build the child care supply by encouraging providers to enter the child care market or to expand their operations. Resource and Referral also offers technical assistance to child care providers to help them meet licensing or registration requirements and improve the quality of the care the children receive. A list of Resource and Referral Agencies follows.

                  I would like to find out the same info for the state of SC any help much appreciated

                  Where could I look to get grants for the set up of my in home preschool center. I intend to allow all children including those with special needs ( as I have an autistic daughter who I could not find any care for outside of the public school system) I want to give parents with special needs children the relief that there is a place to enroll their children.

                          Another good source to find information on grants is the Child Care Resource and Referral office in your area. I've been working with the county licensor to get my daycare license and though she may not have all the information she has been able to direct me to the people that do. You could also call your county (or who ever licenses daycare facilities) and ask them for direction.
                          Give a little love to a child, and you get a great deal back.
