Tuition and Fees

Fee Scales.The Child Development Center operates on a sliding fee scale. Please contact the Center for details. We also offer child care through Community Block Grant and the JOBS program.

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. Parents are required to pay the full payment each month even if they go on vacation or their child is sick. All families who have checks returned to the Child Development Center due to insufficient funds will be charged $25.00.

Withdrawals.Parents wishing to withdrawal their child(ren) may do so at any time. A 30 business-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 who leave their children at the Child Development Center later than 5:30 p.m. 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 incidents the parent will be required to meet with the Director to discuss possible solutions to the problem.

Please remember, our staff members often have after school commitments such as classes or family and are anxious to be on time.
