Low-Cost or No-Cost Childcare

Our goal is to help parents be self-sufficient. One of the ways that we help equip parents is by providing childcare options at no cost or a reduced rate through the use of federal, state, and local funds for parents who are working, in school, or attending training.

Through Child Care Contractor Services Southeast Texas, we not only allow low-income parents to go to work or receive training but also support children’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development.
