Wisconsin Extended Day

Nearly all of our facilities offer extended hours. Please visit each center’s page for more information on Extended Day offerings and hours.

In addition to the free Head Start day, you can use your Child Care Authorization or other state-issued child care voucher for Extended Day wrap-around services provided at our sites. If you do not already have a voucher, our friendly staff would be happy to work with you to complete an application. We also offer private pay options for families who do not qualify to obtain state assistance. The Fall 2019 private pay rate is $50 per week per child, and is subject to change. 

Parents, guardians, and caregivers who are interested in Extended Day services must:

  • Submit a Head Start application
  • Submit an Extended Day application/Child Care Authorization (CCA) application
  • Be working or attending school or an accredited training program to qualify

All families interested in Extended Day should review the Extended Day Program Parent Handbook. Staff will work with all parents and caregivers to fill out an Extended Day agreement. Contact your local center for more information.
