Enrollment Selection Criteria

Parent/caregivers applying for the Alternative Payment program are placed on the waitlist and are contacted in order of priority from the waitlist as vacancies occur.


Children who are recipients of Child Protective Services (CPS) or children who are at risk of abuse or neglect upon written referral from a legal, medical, or social service agency.

Second Priority

Families who are income eligible.

  • If two or more families are in the same priority in relation to income:
    • The family that has a child with exceptional needs.
    • The family in which the primary home language is a language other than English.
    • The family has been on the waiting list for the longest time.

The Child Care and Development Division (CCDD) provides the Income Rankings table to determine admission priorities. Prior to the enrollment process, parents/caregivers are required to confirm program eligibility for the ranks that are being enrolled.
