Effective June 1, 2016 our child care rates are making a switch from Full Time/Part Time rates to an hourly system. What we will look at is how many hours per week that your child (ren) is enrolled at our center, then based off of the chart below is the hourly price that you would be charged for that week. For some families this may change from week to week and for other families, it may be a consistent price. We are hoping that this helps some families out with their child care tuition. There is a 10 % discount for those families who have 2 + children enrolled in the center.
Infant Room (0-1 year old) Toddler Room (1-2 year old) Preschool 3-5 year olds
$3.85/hour $3.85/hour $3.45/hour
IMPORTANT: If you have a preschool child that is currently enrolled in our child care center M-F there is no additional fee to attend AM preschool with the new hourly system. Based on the number of hours your child is at the center from the chart above would be the child care tuition for that week.
Preschool 8:30-11:00 AM
Options: 2 Day (T/TH) $80.00/Month
3 Day (M/W/F) $120.00/Month
5 Day (M-F) $200.00/Month
Our curriculum is designed by abilities and not age groups. There are many children who excel at a certain skill and may need help with another skill. Our goal is to not separate the children into age groups, but into skill groups. By doing so this provides time to help those who need help and challenge those who do well in a skill.
3 Year Old Tuition Assistance
For families who are enrolling 3 year olds you may qualify for tuition assistance if you wish. The tuition assistance comes through the Early Childhood of North Central Iowa. Scholarship applications will be available by June 30, 2016.
