E-Child Care (ECC) Provider Information

E-Child Care or ECC is the automated system, using either a telephone or a swipe machine, which records children's attendance and then generates payments from that information to the child care provider. The parent is responsible for reporting the attendance of their children while providers are responsible for monitoring the ECC Provider Web Portal to ensure payment is received.

Failure To Utilize ECC

All providers are required to use the E-Child Care (ECC) system and require parents/guardians to use it as the method of documenting attendance for all children receiving child care subsidy.  Providers are also required to maintain written attendance records, which support electronic time and attendance.  Under no circumstance shall providers possess or hold any parent’s EBT or ECC Card.  If a parent fails to use or misuse the ECC system, please submit, fax or email the Notice of Failure to Utilize E-Child Care (ECC).

Provider's Daily Co-Payment

Parents are responsible for the daily co-payment fee. The parent’s co-payment plus the amount received through the daily transactions (swipes) equals the state maximum rate. Providers are not fully paid for their services unless they collect the parents’ co-payment. If a parent has failed to pay the daily co-payment as agreed upon, please submit, fax or email the Notice of Failure to Submit Fee Co-Payment to Office for Children immediately. The child care provider must show Office for Children proof of non-payment of daily co-pay.
