What is Alternative Payment?

Are you a family who needs help paying for child care? Our Alternative Payment may be just the answer you're looking for. We make full or partial payment to qualified families whose income does not exceed the State Median Income Level and who have a need for child care. The first step to see if you qualify for this program is to apply online at the San Diego County Centralized Eligibility List.

Our programs are funded through the California Department of Education, Child Development Division.

Proof of residency in San Diego County is required for all children enrolled.
