Fees

SY 22-23 Fee Structure Chart (FS/HAAF)

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 Instructional Programs is processed on the 15th of every 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. However, in order to stop billing for the following month, you must submit a two weeks' notice to withdraw from the class. Sponsors are responsible for the fees if withdrawal notice is not submitted.
  • 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. A late payment fee of $10 is charged on the 6th business day of the billing cycle per child/per program.
  • 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 childcare 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. Each family, regardless of income category, must provide income documentation. Families are NOT permitted to automatically elect to enroll in the highest fee category. Failure to provide the required information will delay the processing and approval of childcare services as well as result in denial of childcare.

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% of the monthly payment 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.
