The Irvine Children's Fund (ICF) was founded in May 1986 as a nonprofit partnership of volunteer business and community leaders dedicated to before and after school child care. ICF raises money to support facilities and programs for children attending before and after school child care programs operated by nonprofit providers on all elementary school sites in the Irvine Unified School District. The ICF has continued to work to provide quality, accessible, affordable child care for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. The child care programs are under the supervision of the Irvine Child Care Project, a joint powers between the city of Irvine and the Irvine Unified School District.  The child care programs meet all state and federal licensing regulations.

The program began with 6 child care sites and continues to expand as new elementary schools are opened.  The 25th child care site opened at Beacon Park Elementary School in 2016, the 26th child care site opened at  Eastwood Village elementary school in 2017and the 27th child care site will open in August 2018 at Cadence Park elementary school.
 
Children can go safely to and from home, school and licensed child care both before and after school.  All child care programs work closely with their schools and teachers.  The child care programs are open from 7 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday including holidays and summers.  The families can go to work knowing that their children are in a safe, licensed and nurturing child care program.

CEO Statement

The Irvine Children's Fund has raised over $2,669,003 to fulfill our mission of providing quality, affordable, safe & accessible before and after school child care for elementary school children.
 
The Irvine Children's Fund works with the Irvine Child Care Project to make before and after school child care accessible to all families.
 
The city of Irvine and the Irvine Unified School District decided in 1984 that before and after school child care are an important part of the school day.  The Irvine Child Care Project was formed in 1984.  The child care program has increased from 6 elementary schools to 26 schools.   The child care sites are now included in the master planning phase of all new IUSD elementary schools being built in Irvine.  The child care sites are on the school campus so children can go safely to and from school and families can go to work knowing that their children are in a licensed child care site that partners with their children's schools.   In addition, the child care sites are open from 7 am - 6 pm year round including school holidays.  No other district has this comprehensive program to meet the needs of working families both before and after school.

Board Chair Statement

The Irvine Children's Fund is an important child care community resource for working families.

Programs


Irvine Children's Fund Before and After School Child Care Scholarships

The Irvine Children's Fund provides before and after school child care scholarships to low income, working families.  The child care sites are located on 26 elementary schools in the Irvine Unified School District and will expand to 27 in August 2018.  The child care is under the supervision of the Irvine Child Care Project.
Budget  $130,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Child Care
Population Served Families Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
Each year, the Irvine Children's Fund has expanded the number of children receiving child care scholarships and child care days provided.
 
 
Program Long-Term Success  The Irvine Children's Fund has provided before and after school child care scholarships since 1986 and continues to expand as new elementary schools are built in Irvine.  The Before and After School Child Care Program began with 6 elementary schools in the Irvine Unified School District and has expanded to include all 26 elementary schools and will expand to 27 schools in August 2018.  The Irvine Children's Fund has provided funding for before and after school child care scholarships for all qualifying low income, working families.  The program has also expanded to provide funding for children in transitional kindergarten through 6th grade for low income, working families.  The families receive a scholarship for 50% of the child care fee and the parents are responsible for the remaining 50%.
Program Success Monitored By 
The Irvine Children's Fund works with the Irvine Child Care Project (ICCP).  ICCP monitors all child care programs to verify that the programs meet all state and federal licensing regulations. 
 
All families must be working and meet the low - moderate income qualifications as set by HUD.  Each family provides documentation of work and income.
 
 
 
 
Examples of Program Success 
The Irvine Children's Fund has expanded the program eligibility for children in Transitional Kindergarten through 6th grade for qualifying low-income, working families.  
 
In 1986, the Irvine Children's Fund could only provide funding for children from working families who were in the  very low income bracket and for a maximum of two years.  That left children who had a child care scholarship in Kindergarten and first grade without a scholarship when starting in 2nd grade.  At that time, there was Orange County child care funding available that later was drastically decreased.  As ICF funding increased, ICF expanded the number of years that a family could have a scholarship.  Now funds raised by ICF are available for working families who are in the very low to moderate income bracket and funds raised make it possible to meet the needs of qualifying children in transitional kindergarten through 6th grade.
