Subsidized Child Care Program Continues During GELC Renovation

Subsidized Child Care Program Continues During GELC Renovation

Grandview Early Learning Center closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and has remained closed for a long-planned renovation.

Although GELC’s building is closed due to construction, it’s important to note that its Subsidized Child Care Program is still available for Tribal families. In addition, GELC staff are continuing to serve families with meals, activity packets and other support.

The Subsidized Child Care Program is funded through the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) and offers choices for your family’s child care needs. This program gives parents a choice of their childcare providers. GELC will help pay for one of the following: a licensed provider (cares for child in a licensed facility/home), a non-licensed provider (must care for child in child’s home), or a relative provider (can care for the child in relative’s home or child’s home).

The construction project will create one centralized front entrance, limiting access and improving safety. It will also add two new classrooms, with space for 30 additional students and is expected to be complete by the end of 2021.
