Dear Child Care Provider:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant, which subsidizes the State of West Virginia’s child care program, received additional funding from the CARES Act. The increased allocation allowed West Virginia to provide child care assistance for any parent deemed an essential worker during the pandemic, regardless of income.

On December 27, 2020, a second stimulus bill was authorized which includes an additional designation for child care.  The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources’ Division of Early Care and Education will extend both current Child Care Certificates and Parent Service Agreements through at least January 31, 2021.

Please understand that all payment is subject to the availability of state and/or federal funds.

If you have any questions, please contact your local Child Care Resource and Referral agency.

Thank you for continuing to serve the children and families throughout West Virginia during this difficult time.

West Virginia Childcare Centers United

West Virginia Childcare Center United (WVCCU) is a nonprofit childcare providers organization created to act as the “voice” for children, their families, and early care education professionals, and advocates across the state of West Virginia.

We were formed by the merger of two former organizations: West Virginia Association of Child Care Centers and Directors on a Mission.

West Virginia Child Care Centers United (WVCCU) wants to help state leaders understand the current situation for children/families and child care professionals in West Virginia.

In childcare, it is easy to feel that no one understands the challenges of providing quality care.  WVCCU wants to make sure that the resources and supports are in place to make all childcare programs successful.

Why Should My Childcare Program Join WVCCU?

We offer that support by providing opportunities to network with other childcare professionals who can relate to difficult situations.  WVCCU also gives a voice to legislation that effects childcare centers, teachers, and policy.  We promise to keep you informed of changing regulations as well as pending legislation that could make the difference in your childcare program.  WVCCU facilitates a minimum of 2 Dinner Meetings a year where a speaker usually addresses the members about current news affecting the childcare industry.  This also gives members time to come together to talk about individual issues that may be relevant to others.
