Child Day Care Contracts

(Formerly known as DSS Centers or state-funded centers)

Child Day Care programs provide early care and education to infants and toddlers, preschoolers and/or school age children who meet certain eligibility requirements, including falling below 75% of the state median income. These programs are located in various towns and cities across Connecticut. Section 8-210 of the Connecticut General Statutes (C.G.S.) specifies that the purpose of this funding is for the development and operation of child day care centers for children disadvantaged by reasons of economic, social or environmental conditions pursuant.


The services provided through the Child Day Care Contracts are supported through state funds.  Enrollment is conducted at individual programs. For more information about licensed early care and education programs in Connecticut and funding available to support families, you can contact 211.
