  • My DaYCaRe could close as early as 4:30 on ALL Holiday Weekends and the day before holidays that fall on a weekday.

(Unless it will be an extended absence at which time we'll discuss your situation and to see what fair solution we can work out together.)

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

  • *NOTE: ( FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE MIGHT BE AVAILABLE ) FOR QUALIFYING FAMILIES.  * DUE TO CUTS IN THE STATE BUDGET BY OUR WONDERFUL GOVERNOR ~ ASSISATNCE FOR SOME FAMILIES IS BEING DENIED AT THIS TIME. IF you are approved, I am willing to work out a monthly co-payment arrangement that works best with families needing financial assistance.

DHS PAYMENTS:

*MY DHS PAYMENT POLICY: Effective IMMEDIATELY ALL clients waiting to get DHS Assistance approval will be billed and will expected to pay a weekly bill in FULL every Friday. Those who can not pay their weekly bill in full will be asked to find alternate Day Care until DHS Approval for payments is received. Any/All payments made while waiting on approval will be decucted from your monthly "Co-Pay".  Once we receive confirmation of DHS approval, we can then work out a monthly co-payment that is comfortable with both of us.

PAYMENTS DUE:

  • PAYMENT IS DUE EVERY FRIDAY or YOUR PAYDAY, if you don't get pd every Fri. Even IF your Child is NOT in attendance on payday I STILL expect payment in FULL on payday! SUGGESTION: If you pay in Check feel free to leave a post dated check & I'll hold it until Saturday.
  • Due to clients STILL not paying on time &/or skipping out on me and not paying at all, from here on out; *LATE FEES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED!

*Since 2007 LATE FEES ARE ADDED TO BILLS AS FOLLOWS:

  • Bills Under $100.00 ~ Late Fee = $15.00
  • Bills $100.00 + ~ Late Fee = $25.00
  • *PLEASE NOTE ~ I reserve the right to charge an additional $5.00 PER DAY late fee to clients who are repeated late with their DaYCaRe payments!
  • ATTENTION: FYI ~ I have "auto pay" bills deducted from my Bank Account EVERY WEEK, & my Client DayCare payments are what I use to cover these Automatic Deductions. IF you neglect to pay me on your pay day, and as a result it messes up my bank account, YOU WILL BE CHARGED for the reimbursment of any/all charges which occur to my account by the bank due to your non payment.
  • * I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who does not make on time and/or make FULL payments for my services on the day the payment is due&/or their OVER DUE Bill exceeds $200.00.

OTHER FEES:

  • RETURNED CHECKS FEE: A $20 fee will be charged to you for all NSF Checks returned to me as well as reimbursment for any & all other charges, by the bank, that occur due to your returned checks.
  • NO CALL NO SHOW FEE: PLEASE CALL or TEXT ME if you can not pick your child up on time OR if your child will be ABSENT! I reserve the right to charge for a FULL Day of Day Care (MINIMUM $10.00 per day) for a NO CALL/NO SHOW FEE (NC/NS) each time your child is absent and you do not call and let me know they will not be there on a regularly scheduled day, ESPECIALLY on days when I've hired a sub/assist to come in & help me!  PLEASE respect my time ~ THANK YOU!

  • NON COMPLIANCE FEE: (Effective June 1, 2007) I reserve the right to charge a $25.00 PER WEEK NON COMPLIANCE FEE to any parent who does not keep their child's medical records updated.  REMEMBER:  DCFS requires your records to be updated at all times. So EVERYTIME your child visits the DR for a check up &/or shots you MUST update your DaYCaRe records as well!
