For Parents/Guardians

If child care is necessary for a family while an adult member of the household works or attends approved training, Athens Countychildcare_parent300 Job and Family Services may assist in payment of child care services.

Families may choose their child care provider from a list of licensed providers (list is below) or have a friend or family member of their choice become licensed through the program.

All licensed home providers are required to have criminal background checks, complete training (including child development, CPR and first aid) and to maintain safe and healthy homes for the children in their care.

Child care assistance is provided on a sliding fee scale and is based on household income and eligibility guidelines.
