elrc + scholarship info

Our goal at JHCDC is to provide care and education at a price that is affordable to the members of our community. We currently offer two options to help supplement the cost of attending:

  • The Center signed a contract with the Early Learning Resource Center (formerly CCIS), to help assist families that may qualify.

  • Scholarships may be available to subsidize part of the fees when financial hardship warrants. If you are applying for a scholarship you may be asked to provide a copy of your child's birth certificate, proof of residency, and family income statements.
