Weekly Fee Schedules

Reservations for Child Care programs must be made on a weekly basis. Reservations for care, along with payments, will be due the Friday prior to the week of Child Care desired. Drop-in care is not provided. Please see the fee schedule below for details.

HCPS Child Care Services Fee Schedule (as of 7/4/24)

Student Days

Regular Week (M-F) $35/week $80/week $115/week
Week w/Early Dismissal $35/week $85/week $120/week
Emergency Child Care $12/day $25/day $37/day

Non-Student Days

Teacher Workdays $28/day
“Summer PLUS” Week $140/week
Emergency Child Care $25/half-day

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 2024-25 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.

Families should make reservations and payments through the K12PaymentCenter Website, or at their child care sites, the week before desired child care. Check out our “K12 Payment Center Help Page” page for tips on using

If paying by cash, the exact amount is required, as change is not kept on site. Checks, money orders, and DSS vouchers are also accepted.

Parents/guardians receiving financial assistance are still required to follow the payment schedule if a parent fee is required. Families receiving financial assistance from DSS must check with DSS to see if a new voucher is needed for each school year and for Summer PLUS care. If a family does not receive a voucher by the first day the child attends care, the parent/guardian will be responsible for full payment for the days attended. DSS funding is limited and is not always available.



Parents/guardians are asked to call the Child Care site that their child attends, in the event that the child will be absent on a day that has been reserved. Dates are not transferable and credit is not given for these days, since HCPS Child Care Services is self-sufficient and does not receive tax dollars.


Since enrollment for Summer PLUS is held in early spring, consideration is given to accommodate families’ changes for the first week of programming. Any changes to the first week of Summer PLUS must occur before the last day of the school year to receive any credit or transfers of tuition fees collected. Summer PLUS does not offer a daily fee.
