We don’t believe that your child’s education should ever be something you have to compromise. However, we know that situations in life can prevent you from choosing the childcare center that you trust most due to finances. In order to prevent this we offer a scholarship program to low-income households and teenage parents who are in need of childcare financial assistance. These scholarships are addressed on a personal basis and awarded as needed. Don’t wait to apply!

Contact us today with any questions you may have about our scholarships for single mothers and teens and the qualifications. See why we are Alpharetta’s Top Rated Local® childcare center.

Kind, compassionate, and understanding care from professionals who love what they do—it’s time to call us today!

Please read the following documents in its entirety and then fill out the application. The original application and requested documents must all be submitted before any information is processed as we do not accept incomplete applications. You may only choose one program to participate in. This scholarship may not be combined with any other program offered here at Joyful Praise Academy or through any governmental aid programs (i.e. CAPS).
