Child Care Executive Parternship


ELC Broward is now accepting applications from School Readiness Providers for the Child Care Executive Partnership (CCEP) for the 2018-19 program year.

Employers who participate in the CCEP contribute money to help their employees reduce the cost of child care. Through federal and state funding, employer contributions are matched dollar-for-dollar with money from the CCEP. Parents pay a portion based on a sliding fee scale, and must meet School Readiness Eligibility requirements. If you are a current CCEP provider and would like to continue your participation, a new commitment form must be completed annually. If you have not participated in CCEP before, now is your chance to join for the upcoming program year.

Please e-mail your completed commitment form to ProviderPortal@elcbroward.org no later than Monday, April 23rd to be considered for the program year beginning on July 1, 2018.

The dollar amount you wish to commit must be indicated on the form. This dollar amount should be roughly equal to 50% of the child care costs for the number of CCEP children you anticipate serving in your program. If you have any additional questions, please contact your Provider Relations Specialist.
