Workforce Solutions South Plains Child Care Services provides child care scholarships for income eligible families, promoting long-term self-sufficiency by enabling parents to work, attend workforce training, or education activities.  It also educates parents about availability of quality child care, which enhances children’s early learning.

Across Texas, parents and families enroll their children into child care programs, including center-based and home-based programs. Numerous research studies have shown that at-risk children who attend higher quality child care programs are more prepared for school entry than children who do not attend quality child care programs.
