Executive Partnership Program

The Child Care Executive Partnership (CCEP) program for early care and education providers in Miami-Dade County allows centers to provide care for an employee's child at the center which they are currently employed and be partially reimbursed for that care by the Coalition. This innovative child care reimbursement benefit helps employers meet the needs of a growing segment of their work force — working parents.

Through this program, federal and state funding is “matched” with partial contributions from participating early care and education providers on a dollar-for-dollar basis to provide child care services to participating families.

If you currently work in an early care and education center, have your children enrolled, or would like to enroll your children in that center and qualify based on eligibility criteria, you can participate. Your child can be placed in the early care and education center where you work if that center has a CCEP Provider Agreement with the early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monore (ELCMDM).   

Similar to the School Readiness grant, this program serves center employees with low to moderate wage-earnings who qualify for the program. The eligibility requirements are the same, with the exception that they can earn up to 200% of federal poverty level.  

The provider will be reimbursed at 50% of its school readiness rate and may be eligible for a tax credit for the remaining 50% (up to $50) per month for each child enrolled at the facility (please check with your tax professional). Tax benefits, increased employee morale, and productivity make this an exciting work-life benefit.



Assess your eligibility by consulting the pre-screening form available through your employer.

Low to moderate wage-earning families, at or below 200 percent of poverty, qualify for the program. If your total household income falls within the following limits, you may be eligible to receive low-cost, quality child care.

  • You are scheduled to work more than 20 hours a week
  • You have children age 12 or younger who need child or after school care
