Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees

The Child Development Center operates on a sliding fee scale. Both the sliding fee scale and income verification are updated every two years, on even years.  Unless otherwise indicated, we assume that a child will be enrolled for the entire year.

  • Fee Payments must be made the first of each month. Checks should be made payable to Ohio University Child Development Center or OU CDC. Tuition should be placed in the box outside the director’s office (Room 108). Automatic checks can be setup to send from your bank.  Parents are required to pay the full payment each month even if they go on vacation, their child is sick or the Center closes due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

  • Withdrawals: Parents wishing to withdraw their child(ren) may do so at any time. A 30 day written notice is requested to allow enough time to fill the vacant spot. If sufficient notice is not given, there will be a charge for the additional month.

Late Policy

Parents should have all their children in their care no later than 5:30 p.m. If parents are late, please inform the Master Teacher or Center of your anticipated arrival time.  The late fee will be billed as follows per child:

    First instance        $10.00 per quarter hour or any part thereof

    Second instance        $15.00 per quarter hour or any part thereof

    Third instance        $20.00 per quarter hour or any part thereof

This policy is designed to deter late pickups; therefore, after three offenses the parent will be required to meet with the Director to discuss possible solutions to the problem.
