Registration and Supply Fees

An annual $25 per child registration fee is due at the time of enrollment. This fee is non-refundable. 

Withdrawal from Program

If parents wish to withdraw from the program a 2 week notice must be submitted to the Center Director or Senior Administrative Assistant.  

Parents will continue to be billed until notification of withdrawal is received.

You will receive your bill on the 10th of each month and the full payment is due by the 15th of that month, including families receiving ICCP benefits.

Late Fees

If the 15th falls on a weekend, payment must be made the Friday before to avoid a late fee.

If full payment is not received by the 15th, a $20.00 late fee will be assessed. For families receiving ICCP, the account must maintain a “zero” balance by the 15th to avoid this fee.
Reminder - Due to a late start in January, bills for January and February are due extremely close together. Please budget accordingly to avoid a late charge.

Unpaid Bills

All outstanding bills must be paid in full (including families with ICCP), including the late fee, by the 20th of the month for your child to return to care. There will be no exceptions.

Important Note: If your child does not receive care due to nonpayment , we will hold your child’s spot at your expense until the end of the month in order to provide you with some extra time to get caught up on your bill. You will continue to be charged for their spot. If payment is still not received in full at the end of the month, your child will be dismissed from our program, a HOLD will be placed on your account and your outstanding balance will be sent to collections. Please come talk to the Director of the program if extenuating circumstances present themselves, as special arrangements may be made on a case by case basis.

Due to registration times, a HOLD will be placed on all accounts with outstanding balances after April 15th, instead of the 20th. 


Child care is considered a monthly service like belonging to an athletic club or owning a car. You are charged for child care whether or not you use your scheduled days. No refunds will be made for days not used.

Late Pick-Up Fees

Late fees will be assessed to all parents when their child remains beyond their scheduled hours. If you are late picking up your child a $1 per minute late charge will be assessed.
