Fort Stewart Fee Structure Chart

Hunter Fee Structure Chart

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 severe weather. Fees may be paid as follows:

  • Billing for SKIESUnlimited is processed on the 1st  of the month. Parents may pay in person (at any CDC, at SAC or at Parent Central Services) or online. Participants with an outstanding balance after the 5th day will be dropped from the class roster. Sponsors are responsible for fees incurred due to non-payment
  • Billing for Full-day, Before School and After School Programs is processed semi-monthly on the 1st and the 15th of the month. Parents have the option to pay in person or online. Late payment fee of $10 is charged on 6th business day of the billing cycle per child/per program through DD-139 Garnishment.
  • Youth Sports fees are due at the time of enrollment. They are not billed after the intial enrollment cost.
  • Hourly Care Fees are due at the time of pickup.

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. Failure to provide required income verification will result in assignment to highest Fee Category 9.

If a childcare space is not immediately available, you may elect to be added to our waiting list. When a parent accepts a space, a 10% 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 program offered by CYS (excluding camps). The second child and subsequent children will receive the discount.

Customer Reviews

"This is only feedback for the receptionist. She is phenomenal. Of every staff member at every facility I have ever encountered, she is the epitome of what a receptionist should be: a representative of the service/bldg, a friendly face, someone who can address you needs, someone who KNOWS her job. I cannot speak the same way of the rest of the staff in the bldg, but the RECEPTIONIST is wonderful. I wish each staff member could be as competent, friendly, efficient as her." 

"Very kind and helpful - excellent service by the whole team!"

"I've been speaking with CYS regarding my children's needs for several weeks, this office provided superb service. When I came in today, the service was even more on par with what I expected. Probably the best and most smooth registration process I've went through."
