Child Care Changes Coming Oct. 30

Hamilton County has been chosen as a pilot county to implement Ohio’s new Electronic Child Care system, which will result in better tracking and spending of tax dollars in the publicly-funded Child Care program.

On Oct. 30, we are scheduled to change from a voucher system to an electronic swipe-card system. Soon, all Ohio counties will make the change.

This means big changes for Hamilton County parents and providers who are involved in the program. Each provider must have an electronic swipe-card system installed and each parent will swipe in and out each day. You can find out more about these changes by visiting our web site:

Please have patience. The conversion to a new system is difficult for everyone. There will likely be glitches. We will keep you updated as the conversion gets closer.
