Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP):  The ICCP provides child care assistance to working families and to those in a qualified training or education program by paying for a portion of child care.  In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the income limits for the ICCP are increasing so that more Idaho families will be eligible for benefits.  For more information, visit their website at healthandwelfare.idaho.gov or call (877) 456-1233 to learn about ICCP and how to apply. If you do receive help with child care fees from the ICCP, we need a new Child Care Provider Form (CCP) from you whenever a change is made to the schedule. 

Questions About Your Child's Development? Screenings are available for children ages birth to 3 years old through the Idaho Infant Toddler Program at no charge for eligible children/families.  Children will be screened for physical coordination, self-help, social skills, learning, and speech/language (also for hearing and vision if needed).  To discuss program options, call Hollie Gneiting at
(208) 904-0861.

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP):  The ELC takes part in the CACFP which promotes healthful standards for nutrition and helps reimburse a portion of food program costs. To learn more, go to www.sde.idaho.gov/cnp/cacfp
