MyWIChildCare for Parents

MyWIChildCare EBT Card Sample

Parents receiving Wisconsin Shares Child Care Subsidy are now using an EBT card to pay their child care provider, similar to using the Quest card for FoodShare. The EBT system is called MyWIChildCare.


About the MyWIChildCare EBT Card

Call the number on your EBT card to activate it and establish a Username and Password. Your card will look like the image to the right.

Your child care authorization is based on a monthly average of your child care needs. A monthly amount of subsidy will be added to your card the first day of the month. Amounts for new authorizations are added the next business day. You will have up to 90 days to use your monthly amount. After 90 days, the unused balance will be removed from your EBT card.
