City of Miami Offers Tuition-Free Childcare For Struggling Families

Check-in with us every morning as we kick off 90 minutes of Non-Stop ’90s at 8:00 am! @Totally939Miami! - #MackInTheMorning @MACKONTHERADIO & @ClaudiaMonair, who's filling in for @iAmLettyB.

The City of Miami announced a program that will provide FREE tuition for three city-owned child learning centers. This will hopefully offer some financial relief for families that are still struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The learning centers offer children educational and recreational services from 0-5 years-old. If you check all the boxes and live in the City of Miami, you will be able to enroll your children at no cost.

City of Miami officials says the program was made possible by a $600,000 federal Community Development Block Grant. Using this grant, they will be able to provide assistance for families in need of childcare.

According to, to be eligible, families must:

  • Provide proof of residency in the City of Miami (utility bill, check stub, etc.).
  • Provide proof of income - must be a member of a low-to-moderate household income.
  • Provide proof of child's age (birth certificate).

The city's three childcare centers are open year-round from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and are located at:

  • Eaton Park Child Learning Center - 490 N.E. 61 Street
  • Lemon City Child Learning Center - 27 N.E. 58 Street
  • Moore Park Child Learning Center - 765 N.W. 36 Street
