What is E-Child Care?

Child Care Subsidies will be managed through the E-Child Care program. This system tracks and verifies attendance in child care programs. It will get rid of having to submit vouchers and allow providers to get paid quicker. In addition, the system will allow providers to:

  • Find out about a child’s authorization,
  • See who is registered at their center,
  • Obtain daily check in/out report and;
  • See other reports on enrollment and attendance.
