We offer a 20% discount on fees paid in advance. You can pay in advance in two ways:

1. If you know you will need care on specific days or a specific number of days per week, you can sign up for the annual flat fee plan that suits your needs and set up automatic monthly installments from your checking account. View the flat rate plan options. For more information or to set up an installment plan, email the Program Coordinator. 

2. If you will need occasional or intermittent drop-in care, make a deposit to your account and your fees will be deducted at the discounted rate. View the daily rate fee schedule.


A fee reduction is available to families who qualify upon request and verification. you can apply for our fee reduction through our Income Eligibility Determination form that will go home in the back to school packet. Please contact the program coordinator if you'd like to request this option.
