Families are expected to pay between 10% and 20% of their gross income for childcare. Monthly financial aid a family receives from Kids First is based on a number of factors:
o The monthly/yearly gross income of the family
o Number in the family
o How many children you have in childcare
o How many days a week the child will attend
o The daily rate of your program/child’s classroom
