Ohio Electronic Childcare Swipe Card

Ohio ECC Swipe Card
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (locally known as the Cuyahoga County Department of Employment and Family Services) implemented a Electronic Child Care system called Ohio ECC. Parents/Guardians will be in charge of reporting their child's attendance using this swipe card with a card reading device that all providers must have. Any questions about the ECC Swipe Card should be directed to the Ohio ECC Caretaker Helpline at 1-888-796-4322.
