Child Care Fees

All parents establish a contract with the center and are charged their contracted rate plus any additional hours their child attends.  Charges are made for all contracted days, even if the child does not attend.  Care will be provided for a month, totaled, and then billed.  If a one-week written notice of anticipated absence is given, a holding fee of $10.00 per day, per child will be charged in lieu of the contracted rate.  Holding fees may be used for a maximum of 5 days per semester.

Sibling Discount: A family who registers two children will pay full tuition for the child who attends the center for the greatest number of hours and will receive a 25% discount for the second child. 

To receive care in the toddler room, the child's parent must be either a full-time student or an employee of the University.

There is no hourly care provided in the toddler room.  In the toddler room families contract for either the morning session (anytime between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.), the afternoon session (anytime between 12:30-5:30 p.m.), or for a full-day session.  Care spanning any part of the morning and afternoon sessions, even if it is only for one to two hours, is considered a full day.

We close promptly at 5:30 p.m. in the toddler room and 6:00 p.m. in the preschool
room.  A late fee is charged when picking up a child after 6:00 p.m.  The fee is $5.00 for every 5 minutes.  This fee is due immediately.
