Does Your Child Qualify for Tuition Assistance?

Tuition Assistance Programs

St. Tammany offers three programs to help families with tuition assistance.

Louisiana’s Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) provides qualifying families with financial support for child care services. CCAP helps families, with a parent or legal guardian who is working or attending school or job training, pay for high-quality child care for children under the age of 13 or children with special needs up to age 18. CCAP pays for a significant portion of the child care costs, and families pay the difference charged by the provider.
Louisiana’s Child Care Assistance Program B-3 (CCAP B-3) provides qualifying families with financial support for child care services. CCAP B-3 helps families, with a parent or legal guardian who is working or attending school or job training, pay for high-quality child care for children ages Birth-Three. CCAP B-3 pays for all of the child care tuition and families pay registration and fees.
Nonpublic School Early Childhood Development Program (NSECD) provides pre-K programming to four-year-old's to qualifying families. Children in the NSECD program receive full day pre-k. St. Tammany Ready Start Network has three NSECD participating child care centers: Children's College, Little Feet First (Old Spanish Trail location), and The Little Academy. To apply, contact the centers directly.
