CalWORKs students may be eligible to receive low cost or free child care while attending Santa Monica College. Students that qualify may select a licensed Child care Center, a licensed Family Day Care, or an Exempt (blood relative) provider to care for their children while they attend classes.
Note: Santa Monica College does NOT have an onsite child care facility. We provide child care referrals and subsidies to eligible CalWORKs students.
