The UC Early Learning Center works with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services to accept Hamilton County vouchers for families that are income eligible.

In addition, we administer a scholarship program funded by individual donors, grants and charitable foundations for undergraduate students at the University of Cincinnati to assist with the cost of child care. For more information regarding the application process, please contact the center.

NOTE: There is a $50.00 non-refundable registration fee.
