Find The Option That Suits Your Family Now

Child care is one of your biggest priorities, and no one should struggle to give their little learner the very best start. There are several options available to help you offset the cost of care, and we’ve made it easy to find out about them.

See What Option Works For You:

A tax credit is even more valuable to families than a tax deduction! It’s a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the taxes you owe. Some credits are refundable—reducing taxes otherwise owed to zero and paying a refund. 

 NEW Federal Tax Benefits:

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 enhanced the benefits of families with children and child care specifically. The details of the new benefits can be hard to understand, so we’re here to break it down. 

 Under current federal law, eligible families can claim 2021 child care tax credits up to the following maximum amounts:

      $8,000 from the federal Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit (up to $4,000 for each of your first two children). For 2021, this is a refundable credit.

      $6,728 from the federal Earned Income Tax Credit.

      $3,600 per child under six (as of December 31, 2021) and $3,000 for children 17 or younger (as of December 31, 2021) from the federal Child Tax Credit (these amounts were permanently enacted into the law).

 There are rules for these federal tax credits, so please speak to your tax advisor about how they apply to your family. In the meantime, this child care tax credits calculator is a quick tool for a broad estimate.

 State Tax Benefits:

Each state offers different tax credits to offset the cost of child care. See what benefits might be available to you in Michigan.

If your family needs help with tuition, there are state and local agencies to provide tuition subsidies. This map is a great starting point for finding the financial assistance resources available.

 We accept Michigan State Aid for child care. You can ask your caseworker to help you determine your eligibility for tuition assistance.

More and more employers add child care benefits to their employee compensation packages because it’s hard to do your job without reliable child care!

Talk with your employer or your HR department about whether they offer child care benefits and how to use them.

If you’re a family that works for us, joins us for the first time, or raves about us to friends and family, you could receive benefits.

Sibling Discounts  

When families stick with us for more than one child’s care and education, that loyalty goes both ways! If you enroll more than one child with us, we’ll offer you a tuition credit. 

Refer-a-Friend Rewards
