A.C.C.E.S.S. is the program established by Merced County Office of Education to administer State and Federal supported child care programs. The central purpose of the child care subsidy programs (CalWORKs Stages 1, 2 & 3 and Alternative Payments/Block Grants) is to provide subsidized child care and education services to eligible parents in order to assist them in achieving their self-sufficiency goals. Child care is provided according to the need and eligibility of the parent. Parents choose the type of care and the provider of care. Parents may choose licensed care in centers or family child care homes, “exempt” care by eligible relatives, and care that includes religious instruction (in Federally funded programs only).
