Working Wonders offers a small subsidy to qualifying students. Students receiving the child care subsidy choose for their child/children a licensed center or home care provider. (Richland does not have an on-site child care center.) Working Wonders pays a partial subsidy directly to the childcare provider. The remaining cost is the responsibility of the parent.
