We invest over 40% of our funding to assist parents and caregivers, who are working and/or attending school, with high-quality childcare for their children 0-5 years of age.
Smart Start of Transylvania County contributes over $100,000 to the Childcare Subsidy program, which provides financial assistance to eligible families for childcare vouchers.
Families are able to choose a 4- or 5-star childcare provider – either a childcare center or family childcare home. Childcare providers are reimbursed per child at a rate set by the state. Parents must pay a fee of 10% of gross monthly income for all vouchers.
