Fees for daycare are $7 per hour, billed in half-hour increments. Extended daycare charges are billed monthly, in arrears.


Families who pick up their children from daycare after the scheduled closing time or drop off their children prior to the scheduled opening time will be charged $15 for the first 5 minutes and $2 for every minute thereafter


These charges will be posted to the student’s monthly account statement and will be in addition to the regular fees for daycare services.
