Weekly Fee Schedule
Fees for child care are determined based on household income.
You may qualify for less than the maximum fee.
We accept state child care certificates and offer a sliding pay scale based on household income.
If you have a child care certificate, it is your responsibility to give a copy of the certificate to the office and to be sure that is is kept current. Before your child can begin, we must have a copy of their certificate or the first week’s tuition must be paid.
If your certificate requires a parent co-pay, it is required that you stay current with your co-pays or you will lose your assistance.
We do not determine if you qualify for a child care certificate. For more information, click here to visit the TDHS website.
Income-based Sliding Scale:
To determine if you qualify for less than the maximum fee, proof of income for all adults living in the household must be provided at entrance and whenever requested. This will be reviewed annually.
If you have questions regarding your eligibility for the income-based sliding scale, you may email [email protected] or
call our office at (615) 865-5164.
Other Fees & Additional Information
When starting care a non-refundable $100.00 fee must be paid along with the first week of tuition.
Absence of Child:
Tuition must still be paid even if a child is absent or if we are closed for holidays, inclement weather days, or teacher in-service. The only exception is when we close the center for the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Tuition Due Every Monday:
Payments are due every Monday for the current week’s child care. Your payment will be considered late after 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. A late fee of $10.00 will be assessed the first day the payment is late and then $5.00 per day will be added until account is brought current. Accounts past due for two weeks for any amount for child care services can be terminated without notice at The King’s Daughters Child Development Center.
Yearly Re-enrollment & Supply Fee:
$75.00 per child or $100.00 per family must be paid by July 15 for continued care into the next year.
Late for Pick-up Fees:
A $10.00 fee will be added to your bill for late pick-up if you have not arrived by closing. 15 minutes after closing, an additional $1.00 per minute will be incurred. If a child is not picked up within the hour, we are asked by TN Licensure to call DHS. Please have back-up plans in place if you are unable to pick-up your child on time.
Withdrawal of Child from Care: A minimum two week written notice MUST be given before withdrawing your child. If a two week notice is not given, you are still responsible for this amount in tuition payment.
