For a limited time the Early Learning Coalition of Santa Rosa County has open enrollment for school readiness child care for income-eligible families.  Since we have not had open enrollment for some time, many families may not have applied, knowing that we have had a significant waiting list in the recent past but may need to apply for services again.

Basic qualifications:

        Family/Parent must reside in Santa Rosa County

        Applicant must be working 20 or more hours per week or be a full-time student

        Total family gross income must be at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level

        Child or children must be 5 years of age or younger and not yet eligible for kindergarten; and older siblings may be considered if younger siblings qualify for care

Our contact for anyone to call to see if they are eligible for child care is 983-5313 in Milton and 916-5422 in Gulf Breeze.
