BrightSpark is collecting the information we need to assess your eligibility for both the Best Starts for Kids Child Care Subsidy and the State’s Working Connections Child Care (WCCC) program.
If you are eligible for WCCC, you cannot receive the Best Starts Subsidy. We understand that some of this information is sensitive and where possible, have made these questions optional. We identify questions where your information will never be shared with King County or other government agencies connected to your name.
Best Starts is committed to expanding access for families who have experienced disproportionate barriers in accessing child care. Some of the questions we ask help us better understand who we are serving with the child care subsidy.
