Child Development and Care

The Office of Child Development and Care supports low-income working families by providing access to affordable, high quality early care and afterschool programs. To achieve this end, the office supports numerous efforts designed to assess and improve the level of quality across the spectrum of Michigan's early learning and care settings.

This office administers Michigan's federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) dollars and through these funds support:

The Child Development and Care (CDC) Program, the state's child care subsidy program.
Quality improvement initiatives for early learning and development programs and unlicensed/license-exempt subsidized providers coordinated through the Early Childhood Investment Program.

Licensure and monitoring of licensed and registered early learning and development programs.
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Scholarships to individuals working in the early childhood field.
