Jubilee JumpStart maintains a waitlist for all age groups when all enrollment spaces are currently full.
Completion of our waitlist registration form, accompanied by a $50.00 registration fee is required to be placed on the waitlist.
The information gathered from the waitlist registration form will assist us in determining a family’s placement on our waitlist.
In alignment with our Mission & Vision, Jubilee JumpStart reserves at least 65% of its enrollment for families eligible for subsidized child care.
Two separate waitlists are maintained, one for families paying full tuition and the other for families seeking subsidized child care.
Priority enrollment is given as follows:
1. Siblings of children already enrolled in Jubilee JumpStart
2. Residents of Jubilee Housing
3. Employees of Jubilee JumpStart
4. Employees of Jubilee Housing
5. Referrals from partner agencies
8. Alumni of Jubilee JumpStart
9. All others
Placement on the wait list does not guarantee that the center will be able to accommodate a family’s care needs at their desired time.
Space for new enrollments becomes available when a vacancy occurs in the appropriate age group due to a transition or withdrawal.
As space becomes available families are offered enrollment in order of their placement on the waitlist.
We have the largest number of available spaces in late August and early September.
Paying for Enrollment
Tuition and payment is based on each family's specific need. Here are current eligibility and estimated income guidelines.
Subsidy Eligibility Determination
Jubilee JumpStart is a Level II childcare provider and can conduct intake for parent(s)/guardian(s) in most non-TANF eligibility categories.
The information gathered from your waitlist registration form will serve as a pre-screening for eligibility in the subsidy program.
Once an offer of enrollment has been made Jubilee JumpStart will process subsidy eligibility applications for those in eligible categories.
TANF recipients must apply for subsidy eligibility through their TANF caseworker.
In some instances, the process will need to be completed at Child Care Services Division located at:
4001 South Capitol Street, SW.
Washington DC 20032
Estimated Income Guidelines for Subsidy
The following is only a guide to the income levels under which families may qualify for child care subsidy.
Please note that just because your income falls into the allowable scale does not guarantee that you will qualify for subsidy.
