The PSAM and PSPM programs are currently operating at all 13 elementary schools. See our Program Overview for more information about PSAM and PSPM. Check the current here: 2020-2021 Child Care Calendar (eReader Version).
Beginning March 1, reservations in Child Care programs must be made on a weekly, instead of day-to-day, basis* – which is the industry standard for the majority of child care providers in our area. Reservations for care, along with payments, will be due the Friday prior to the week of Child Care desired.
In order to continue providing the level of care our families expect and deserve, and to more efficiently plan staff scheduling and child nutrition needs each week, current weekly Child Care rates will remain the same, but on a pay-per-week schedule. Please see the fee schedule below for details.
|HCPS Child Care Services Fee Schedule (as of 3/1/21)|
|PSAM Only||PSPM Only||Both PSAM & PSPM|
|Regular Week (M-F)||$30/week||$70/week||$100/week|
|Week w/Early Dismissal||$30/week||$75/week||$105/week|
|Emergency Child Care||$10/day||$20/day||$30/day|
|“Summer PLUS” Week||$125/week|
|Emergency Child Care||$25/half day|
*except for Emergency Child Care
NOTE: Emergency Child Care is based on availability and can not be reserved.
School weeks with Early Dismissal days or Teacher Workdays will result in a total weekly cost that reflects the number of “regular” days and unique “Early Dismissal” or “Teacher Workday” per-day rates, based on the hours of care (PSAM, PSPM, or both) reserved for each child. To see this fee schedule applied to the current school calendar, you can reference the 2021 Child Care Services Fee Calendar for weekly breakdowns. Families wishing to use PLUS care on Teacher Workdays must reserve and pay at the site they are wishing to use on the Teacher Workday.
As of February 18, 2021, the PLUS (all-day) program at Sugarloaf Elementary will be discontinued for the remainder of the school year. This follows the financial feasibility evaluation, and coincides with the transition of all elementary students to fully in-person learning on Feb. 18.
