Payment Options
Additional Charges
Please be aware the additional charges listed below are generally not covered by the CDC Subsidy program. Attendance

The purpose for this policy is to ensure that the care-giving staff-to-child ratio stays within the legal range for the license requirements. It also allows for proper planning, so your child receives the best care possible.

Each client will complete a contracted schedule. The intention of this schedule is to have the Parent and the Caregiver in complete agreement on the days and the hours that each child will be in care. This is the contracted schedule that all billing will be based on. Please click here for a sample of the agreement.

In cases where the Adults schedule is not the same from week to week, the schedule for the upcoming week must be submitted by 5:00 pm the Friday before. If the new schedule is not submitted by 5:00 pm the Friday before then the previous submitted schedule will be followed. You will then run the risk of being charged for early drop off fees and late pick up fees. Should there need to be changes made to the schedule after 5:00 pm that Friday, your account will be billed a Schedule Change Fee of $10.00. All schedule changes must be submitted in writing to be placed in the child’s file.

The client’s family may take up to four weeks of vacation over the time span of the fiscal year. If a written notice is submitted a minimum of two-week in advance, these days will be billed at 50% off the full rate based on their contracted schedule. If there is not a notice, that was submitted a minimum of two-week in advance, in the child’s file, these days will be billed at the full rate, based on their contracted schedule.

(In clients that receive subsidized child care assistance from the state, instead of billing at 50% of the hourly rate, these hours will be out at full rate, but only 50% of the hours will be submitted for payment. This will equate to the same outcome as those not receiving subsidized aid.)

All sick days, or unscheduled absent days, are billed at full rate for all clients based on their contracted schedule.
