child care scholarships available for parents with children

Child care while you take care of your studies

Tidewater Community College understands that quality child care is important to helping you achieve your goals. Especially when you are balancing school, work, and other responsibilities.

If you worry about finding enough money to cover care for your children and your tuition, we can help. You may qualify for reduced or no-cost childcare while you attend classes and study.

Thanks to a grant from the Federal Department of Education, TCC is able to offer the TCC Child Care Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Scholarship. The TCC CCAMPIS Scholarship allows students to care for their children, while they pursue their dreams of higher education.

The TCC CCAMPIS Scholarship provides TCC students the ability to receive high quality child minding at local National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited childcare centers. 

It’s more than simply convenient for you. You can feel confident knowing your child will have excellent, consistent care from skilled providers at a premier center.

The scholarship is only good for the semester awarded. Students who want ongoing assistance need to reapply for the scholarship each semester.
