Eligibility

Applications for children under the age of 5 years are accepted year-round.

To be eligible, families must meet federal poverty income guidelines (see table 1), however an exception may be made for children with disabilities whose families are slightly over the income threshold. Children from foster families and families experiencing homelessness are automatically eligible.

All Kids Academy participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and is an equal opportunity provider. CACFP is a state and federally funded program that provides financial aid to licensed child care centers for food expenses. The objectives of the program are to improve the diets of children in our care by providing nutritious, well-balanced meals, and to develop good eating habits in children that will last through later years.

The agency adheres to USDA compliance, including non-discrimination measures. The full USDA Nondiscrimination Statement can be found under the Parent Resources located under the News and Resources tab, or click here to read in English, Spanish or Arabic.
