Child Care Provider Information and Eligibility
Is there flexibility for providers to increase rates based on their participation in the program?No, child care providers will not increase rates for families because they are participating in the Tri-Share pilot. This does not include when child care rates for all families increase (based on annual tuition increase, cost of living, etc.).
Can child care providers outside the designated regions participate in the Tri-Share program?Eligible child care providers may reside outside the designated region of the Hub.
What type of child care facilities are eligible to participate in the pilot?All participating child care providers must be licensed by the state of Michigan. Before and after school care, summer care, and part or full time care are acceptable forms of child care for this pilot.
Can a child care provider who offers free child care to staff (as part of a benefit package) participate as an employer in this pilot?In all cases, the cost of child care must be divided equally between the employer, employee and the State of Michigan. If an employee does not contribute to the costs of child care, then the employer (in this case the child care provider) would not be eligible to participate in the pilot.
