FAQs, Fees, Forms & Links

In addition to Child Development Center fees, our current Fee Policy covers all Child & Youth Services Programs, including: Full Day, Part Day, Part Time, School Age, Hourly Care, Family Child Care Homes, Skies Unlimited Instructional Programs, Youth Services, and Youth Sports. The policy components covered by the current fee policy are:

  • Child Development Center (CDC) Families may select a 2 or 4 week Leave/Vacation Fee Plan for each child enrolled in regularly scheduled child care programs. Selection will ONLY occur during the Family’s initial registration or re-registration for the upcoming 12 months. Once a Leave/Vacation Fee Plan is selected, it remains in effect for the entire registration year (12 months).
  • Patrons provide their Total Family Income (TFI) information as part of their annual registration/re-registration process. The current TFI categories have been adjusted from last year to reflect a weighted average of the proposed military and civilian pay increases.  The attached standard fee structure further clarifies the changes. Local Child & Youth Programs will provide additional information and assistance. 
  • Families with more than one child in full-day programs will receive a multiple child reduction discount, regardless of total family income.  Deployment fee reductions are in effect, while military parents are deployed.

The Garrison Commander may authorize additional fee reductions for Families with temporary, documented financial hardships.
