A Guide for Utah Parents Seeking Childcare or Preschools

Choosing suitable childcare or preschool for your child can be a demanding task, especially for first-time parents. In this guide, we have compiled information about state-subsidized childcare options in Utah and how to take advantage of them, along with other useful advice for selecting the best preschool for your child.

State-Subsidized Childcare Programs in Utah

Utah provides numerous state-subsidized programs focused on supporting parents with their childcare needs. Here are a couple of key programs:

Utah Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP)

CCAP assists low-income families by providing partial childcare payments for children under the age of 13, or up to 18 if the child has a disability. To qualify, parents must be engaged in a qualifying activity such as working, searching for work, or attending school. Applications for CCAP are handled by the Department of Workforce Services (DWS).

Head Start and Early Head Start

These federal programs provide early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. Head Start serves children aged 3 to 5, while Early Head Start serves pregnant women, infants, and toddlers. Applications are accepted by your local Head Start or Early Head Start center.

How to Obtain State-Subsidized Childcare in Utah

To apply for the CCAP, visit the DWS office nearest you or complete an online application through the UT WORKS portal. Applicants are required to submit documents such as proof of income and employment, children's birth certificates, and a list of childcare providers.

For Head Start and Early Head Start, you can visit the Head Start Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center's website to find your nearest center and application details.

Finding High-Quality Childcare and Preschools in Utah

When choosing a childcare center or preschool, parents should look for key indicators of quality, such as a safe and nurturing environment, qualified staff, and an engaging curriculum. Don't hesitate to ask questions and request a visit to observe the school environment.

Care About Childcare

Care About Childcare is a resource provided by the Utah Department of Workforce Services which assists parents in finding high-quality childcare. Parents can search for providers based on various factors such as location, hours of operation, and types of services offered.

Preparing Your Child for Preschool

Transitioning to preschool can be a significant change for many children. Help your child adjust by talking to them about what to expect and encouraging their independence with tasks such as eating and cleaning up.

We hope this guide assists you in finding the best childcare or preschool options for your family in Utah.
