Child Care Assistance

Is the lack of child care holding you back or making it difficult to attend school? We may be able to help. 

CCAMPIS (Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program) is a federally funded program that allows SCC to support student-parents in starting and completing their postsecondary education by providing child care subsidies to qualified students.

SCC has contracted with four off-campus child care providers to provide child care slots for eligible participants, all in the Somerset area. The facilities include: Kid’s Kastle II Child Development Center, P.J.’s Primary Care Centers 1 and 2, and The Children’s House. Child care will be provided during the 16-week fall and spring semesters. Additional information about service times and availability will be provided during an interview with selected participants.
