Help with the Cost of Childcare

Quality Childcare is expensive for families, especially for students attending college.  This CCAMPIS Grant is there to reduce the cost of childcare for student parents.  In addition to financial aid and funding supplied by county agencies through Childcare Aware – Community Child Care Solutions and NORWESCAP – this CCAMPIS Grant has dedicated grant funds to further reduce childcare tuition costs for qualified parents.

Support to Integrate Work, School and Family

Along with the Director of The Children’s Campus, this CCAMPIS Grant will provide academic and emotional support for student parents as they navigate enrollment, advising and counseling, tutoring, studying and graduating through the services of a CCAMPIS Coordinator.  Parents will attend workshops and meetings dealing with time management and parenting to empower them to meet the challenges of work, school and family. 

Access2Success

This CCAMPIS Grant aligns with RVCC’s efforts to focus on student success, especially addressing the challenges faced by lower-income, underserved, and first generation college students.  RVCC’s Guided Pathways helps to streamline a student’s journey through college by providing structured choice, support and learning outcomes.  Add a one-stop support network of The Children’s Campus and the CCAMPIS Grant, and more student parents will be able to achieve their college and career goals.

Early Childhood Education
