IL State Board of Education

Child & Adult Care Food Program

Currently, our McHenry location is the sponsoring site for the IL State Board of Education Child & Adult Care Food Program also known as CACFP. What does this mean to you? As a registered family at our McHenry center, you have the option of receiving FREE INFANT FORMULA and FREE beginning stages of CEREALS and OATMEALS. In addition, ALL FAMILIES enrolled with A Child's Place Early Learning Centers are provided the same benefit of a nutritious and well-balanced breakfast, AM snack, lunch, PM snack and an evening snack that follows the guidelines set by the State of IL Child & Adult Care Food Program while maintaining compliance with the State of IL Health Department.

Coming Soon... ACP of Volo will be a participant of the CACFP Food program.

A Child's Place Early Learning Centers are pleased to provide an array of menu selections throughout the year based upon

season, variety and availability.

Thank you for your support!


As the sponsoring site of the CACFP program, clients enrolled at the McHenry location will receive all items shown above FREE of charge.
