Increasing Access to Educational Child Care at KidsPoint – CCSF Grant

KidsPoint is a leading provider of early education. It is one of the only local licensed child care services that accepts financial assistance through the State of Iowa or through Waypoint’s sliding scale-fee scholarships.

Waypoint’s sliding scale-fee scholarships are designed to support households that make more than the state income guidelines but can’t afford full-pay child care. These scholarships are vital for bridging the gap so families can keep moving forward in their careers or schooling. Waypoint also helps families address concerns inside and outside the classroom, including developmental delays, food insecurity, and help accessing community resources.

Funds from IWF’s CCSF Grant will allow KidsPoint to award more scholarships to meet the community’s increasing demand for child care, especially for low-income families.
