Oak Park Early Learning Academy is blessed to be a 2018/2019 United Way of Whitewater Valley Funded Partner, through their HUG grant. The United Way of Whitewater Valley's mission is to partner with and to financially support organizations that battle against Wayne County's biggest enemies: addiction, food insecurity, poverty, neglect and abuse.
The United Way of Whitewater Valley also recognizes the need for affordable child care and affordable after-school programs. Many Wayne County families find that the high cost of exceptional quality child care is out of their budget. Unfortunately, informal child care options may cost less, but may also interfere with successful employment.
The HUG grant specifically partnered with Oak Park Early Learning Academy to provide scholarships to families that fall in the A.L.I.C.E. (Asset. Limited. Income. Constrained. Employed.) category. In other words, these families are employed and or attending educational classes, but are still under financial strains to meet their household's basic needs. Also, these families' household income exceeds the qualifications for government assistance.
Through their HUG grant funding, Oak Park Early Learning Academy created the A.L.I.C.E. Affordable Child Care Fund. This scholarship subsidizes the weekly child care tuition rates for five (5) children, plus covers their annual registration fee. Affordable Child Care Fund recipients will receive a $30 weekly tuition discount for one (1) year, plus have the $45 annual registration fee covered.
