Learning Bridge staff, community partners and advocates are committed to help every child experience excellent full-day early learning. Please ask about scholarships and tuition subsidies today.

Tuition assistance is available through two primary means:

  1. For income-eligible families who work or go to approved school or training programs, the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) helps pay for child care expenses.  Families are required to cost-share on a sliding scale, and eligibility is based on family size and income. The Learning Bridge is a CCAP Site Provider. More information about IDHS CCAP is at Act for Children. Please contact Center Manager Joy Torres at torresj@lbeec.org for enrollment assistance.

  2. For working families whose income is above the IDHS CCAP eligibility limit, community-wide scholarships may also be available. Learning Bridge donors and the City of Evanston Mental Health Board contribute to these funds. Please contact Ms. Joy for more information.

Families who are interested in full-day care tuition subsidies, and whose children attend other child care programs in Evanston, should contact the Childcare Network of Evanston, 1335 Dodge Avenue, Evanston, 847-475-2661.
