Cost of Child Care
The cost of child care is shared between parents, employers and the State of Michigan, so families are only responsible for 33% of the cost of child care.
Child Care Providers
Under Tri-Share, any licensed child care provider may provide care for any child, age 0 – 17. This includes, but is not limited to, preschool, child care, before or after school care and summer programs.
Payment for child care is made directly to the child care provider through the family’s Tri-Share Hub with The United Way of Northwest Michigan. The employer will deduct one third of the cost of care from the employee’s earnings to cover his/her cost of care.
