Childcare Needs

Students, Faculty and Staff may be wondering about childcare options while they are going to school or working. Below are a just a couple of options for you to consider.

ICC Children’s Center

The ICC Children’s Center provides high quality, accessible, affordable, and educational child care service to students, faculty, and community members.

Our developmentally appropriate program is for potty trained children ages 2 to 6.

Your child can learn and grow as an individual in a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment under the care of qualified teachers and staff. Our goal is to help your child develop a positive sense of self by promoting physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development through play.

We believe that all children deserve a high quality, educational program suited to their needs. We work with you to provide the optimal development for your kids while respecting family values and individuality.

We invite you to check out our page and schedule an appointment to find out more about becoming part of The ICC Children’s Center today!

Child Care Voucher Assistance Program

The Child Care Voucher Assistance Program supports low-income students by supplementing the cost of childcare so students can attend class and focus on their coursework. Students with childcare needs can apply for a voucher to assist with the cost of services at a local, licensed childcare facility or CCAP eligible providers while attending ICC, including the on-site ICC Children’s Center. The voucher is not intended to cover the full cost of childcare expenses but help reduce the cost. A student parents’ eligibility would be based on their financial aid eligibility and the number of credit hours in which they are enrolled.

Enhanced Referral Program

A new program with Illinois Central College and Child Care Connection has launched which supports faculty, staff and student parents or guardians in finding childcare, learning about childcare options, navigating the Child Care Assistance Program and choosing quality childcare in the community. A Referral Specialist is available and ready to guide you in making this important decision. Child Care Connection referrals include a short intake to tailor the referral to meet family needs such as: location, siblings together in care, costs, and transportation.

Referrals are not recommendations.
