Cost of Child Care Services

Parent Fees are based on a sliding scale determined annually by submitting a 1040 Tax Form to the Office of Student Development. The sliding scale is determined by a families combined income.

Family combined income: Monthly rate:
Under $25,00/year $466.00
Under $25,00/year (infant/toddler) $506.00
$25,001-$50,000 $526.00
$25,001-$50,000 (infant/toddler) $567.00
Over $50,000 $607.00
Over $50,000 (infant/toddler) $647.00

Four inclement weather days are built into the payment calendar to account for majority of the late starts, early dismissals or full-day cancellations we encounter during the winter months. Refunds will not be provided if there are more than inclement weather days in an Academic Year

 

Parent Contracts

Each semester every family receives a payment contract that shows the financial terms for services being rendered. The acceptance of this signed contract also obligates the family to be responsible for payment for the entire semester care is requested.

Failure to pay for child care by the indicated payment due date will result in the assessment of a $10 late fee and possible termination of child care services. A two-week notice of discontinuation of child care is required from the parents; however, you will remain responsible for payment for the entire semester unless the vacancy can be filled.

The Center is open from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. during the academic schedule. Hours of operation during breaks (Fall, Spring and Summer) will be 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. for faculty/staff families. Care for student families is only available if there is adequate child/staff ratio and if the families requests child care services in advance as notified by the director.
