Irvine Children’s Fund
Before & After School Child Care Scholarship Program
In 1988, the Irvine Children’s Fund established a child care scholarship fund for low income, working families.
The Irvine Children’s Fund Scholarship Program provides scholarships for children enrolled in Irvine Child Care Project (ICCP) supervised child care sites located at all 29 Irvine schools. The ICF Child Care Scholarship Program is on a sliding scale according to income. The family is responsible for the remaining fee. The goal is to make child care affordable and accessible to working families whose income is severely limited. The Irvine Children’s Fund has provided scholarships totaling $3,328,125. ICF has provided before and after school child care scholarships for nearly 3,000 children in Transitional Kindergarten through 6th grade.
