Action for Children

Child Care Assistance Program

Big Shoulders Fund and Action for Children have teamed up to bring quality, affordable Early Childhood education to Chicagoland families.

All Big Shoulders Fund schools are preferred Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) schools. CCAP is valid to use for students ages 3-5 or any students in our extended day programs. What does this mean for you?
