The Child Care Access Means Parents in School Program (CCAMPIS): Student-parent families at the center


Although the share of student parents remained steady from 2002–15, campus child care centers declined substantially over the same period. For student parents, particularly women, these closures take a heavy toll, as studies demonstrate that women whose children are cared for at off-campus locations face higher transportation expenses and have less time to study than their counterparts. To support parenting students with low incomes, the federal Child Care Access Means Parents in School grant program (CCAMPIS) provides funds for accredited, licensed child care services and other wraparound supports. (author abstract)
