We provide full time care only at the following current rates: Infant (birth-1 year) $225 a week; Toddler (1 year – 2 1/2 years) $215 a week; Preschooler (2 1/2 years – 6 years) $175 a week.

Fees may be paid on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis and may be paid by check or money order, payable to Salina Child Care Center, or by Vision card for DCF eligible families. 

Fees accumulated for over one month delinquent could result in dismissal of a child unless other arrangements have been made with the Executive Director. Please address emergency situations as soon as possible. A $25.00 fee will be charged for all returned checks.

Because our program and licensing regulations require Salina Child Care Center to schedule staff based on the number of children enrolled, we cannot refund tuition for days a child is absent. We require a two week notice if care is no longer needed, whether the child is brought to the center for care.

Salina Child Care Center programs are designed to benefit persons of all backgrounds. We contract with the Department for Children and Families (DCF). Parents will need to contact this office for further information.

Late Charge

Salina Child Care Center closes promptly at 5:30 p.m. Late fees will be assessed at $1.00 per minute beginning at 5:35 p.m. for each child in care.
