Is there free daycare offered in Detroit, MI? ashleynb1991 1 child; Hazel Park, Michigan 114 posts

I am trying to find daycare for my son but DHS denied to help with child care. I was wondering if there is such a thing as free daycare services or a place that will help with daycare other then DHS?

why were you denied?



i've never heard of free daycare unless it was some sort of assistance program.

Maybe look around at local churches?



I would be nervous how well the care would be with free daycare.

I would say if you don't get govt assistance then no, there is no free daycare. And if there is, don't go there because they aren't insured.

It is very expensive. I also pay for my son's preschool tuition at the same place and it's costing me over 1k for the year =/



The only reason I get free care for my kids is because I work there.
