Fees are charged monthly regardless of the number of work days in a month,
the number of federal holidays or unexpected closures due to command decisions or acts of God.
All fees are payable in advance and may be paid as follows:

Billing is run semi-monthly on the 1st and the 15th of the month. Parents have the option to pay in monthly or semi-monthly installments. Late payment fees are charged after the 5th business day.

In accordance with DoD and DA directives military child care fees are based on Total Family Income (TFI) not military rank or civilian grade. The Military Services subsidize fees on a sliding scale for every Family regardless of rank/grade or income.  TFI is all earned (gross) income including wages, Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH), Basic Allowance for Housing with Dependents Rate (BAH RC/T), salaries, tips, special duty pay (flight pay, active duty Demo pay, sea pay) etc., regardless of whether they live in government housing or off the installation.

If a childcare space is not immediately available, you may choose to use our FCC program or hourly care services. You may also elect to be added to our waiting list. When a parent accepts a space, a non refundable deposit is required - the initial payment will equal 10 percent of the monthly payment rounded to the nearest dollar which will be credited to the first month's payment.

Multiple Child Reductions (MCR): A 15 percent MCR is applied when more than one child is enrolled in regularly scheduled child care programs or seasonal youth sports offered by CYSS Services.
