Non-Traditional Child Care

Residents of the District of Columbia are eligible to receive non-traditional child care subsidy payments through the Department of Human Services, Income Maintenance Administration, Child Care Services Division. Non-Traditional child care is a service offered to parents whose work schedule is outside of the standard hours of 7 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. Parents can receive child care services on the weekend, nights, and evenings. Eligibility is based on the customer’s employment and/or training schedule. The parent or guardian must have original documentation that will verify their need for non-traditional child care based on a countable activity (school and/or work schedule).

There are four non-traditional services:

Extended day full time

Includes six to (14) hours of countable activity with at least one hour in the morning before 7 am or in the afternoon after 6 pm. The majority of hours are between traditional hours of 7 am and 6 pm, Monday through Friday.

Extended day part time

Includes less than six hours of countable activity with at least one hour in the morning before 7 am or in the afternoon after 6 pm. The majority of hours are between the traditional hours of 7 am and 6 pm, Monday through Friday.

Nontraditional full time

Includes six to 11 hours between 6 pm and 7 am Monday through Friday, or six (6) to eleven hours on Saturday, Sunday or a Holiday, within a twenty four hour period.
