FINDING QUALITY CHILDCARE

Choosing quality child care can be an overwhelming decision. Albemarle Alliance for Children and Families is here to help you with your search. AACF offers information to families looking for child care and early education experiences for their young children. We do not license or regulate child care facilities. We do not make recommendations, but we provide parents with information that will assist them with making an informed decision.

PAYING FOR QUALITY CHILDCARE

Albemarle Alliance for Children and Families provides a Child Care Scholarship to pay for all or a portion of child care tuition for families in need of child care.

  2. The parent/guardian resides in one of our five counties—Bertie, Camden, Currituck, Gates or Pasquotank Counties.

  3. The child(ren) attends or will attend a 3,  4 or 5 star-rated licensed child care program.

  4. The family’s total monthly income is under the eligibility limits as defined by AACF.

  • Parent/guardian is employed at least 25 hours per week;
