Making ends meet
Daycare/ child care/early learning programs can cost a lot, sometimes even as much as rent or your mortgage! When you have young children, every penny counts. The more pennies you can save, the more you can spend on a quality program.
Pennsylvania offers a number of child care/ early learning programs that are free to eligible families. There are also programs that can help pay for child care or preschool, as well as other household expenses and tips on stretching your budget.
