- The fees for a student-parent child's enrollment are on a sliding scale, ranging from approximately $1.00/hour to $3.00/hour, depending on family income and number of dependents. Income level is verified at the time of enrollment. Community Tuition rates range from $1.00 - $5.00/hour.

Children must be 3.0 years old to be eligible for subsidized care. Eligibility is based on family income and number of dependents.
