Moma is accepting entry into the ECE program for parents who wish to start a family in the US, in an announcement today.
The program, which is open to parents who have already established a child care provider and are eligible for federal tax credits, allows parents to send their child to live with their parents, and has been used in more than 100 countries around the world.
More than half of U.S. households have at least one child under the age of 18, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Mana is one of the few providers of child care in the U.K. to have been accepted for the program.
It currently has around 4,500 families in the country, including around 700 children under the 18-year-old age bracket, the BLS says.
This is the first time that Moma will be accepting US children for entry into its program, the company said.
“This is a unique opportunity to provide child care for US citizens who are eligible and willing to support their families, while also helping our U.k. and UK counterparts to expand their options,” CEO Paul Wodak said in a statement.
In addition to the tax credits for working parents, the ECC is aimed at providing access to child care services, such as child care, child support, preschool, and after-school programs.
As of April 2020, the U,S.
has around 12 million child care workers, the vast majority of them working in the child care sector, according the BJS.
According to the UBI, the majority of US child care is delivered by companies that have more than 50 employees.
Parents may apply for entry by completing the following forms, according with the BSA:Form 1: Application for Entry by Employer(s) with at least 10 employees (10 employees for full-time employees and 10 employees for part-time)Form 2: Application to Apply for Entry to the ECTC (Employer)Form 3: Application by Employers(s), with 10 or more employees to apply for an ECE entryForm 4: Application Form 5: Application, if an application for entry is not received by the date of the deadline(s).
