Billing Procedures and Fees

Childcare/School Age costs: Please see Pricing Sheet for specific classroom costs on the Forms and Reports page.

GSRP Preschool costs: The center hosts a grant based "Great Start Readiness Program" preschool. Families will complete an application; your qualifying factors will dictate your out-of-pocket costs. When the application has been processed, the center will notify you if you qualify for free, reduced, or full tuition preschool. Before and after school and no school day care is an additional fee. See Pricing Sheet for complete details.

Tuition Express: TE is an automated billing system that can use a credit card or bank account to make weekly withdrawals. We ask that all families participate with TE unless there is an outstanding circumstance that does not allow for it. We also can accept credit card payments in person or over the phone, checks, or cash. You are also responsible for any charges incurred by a declined payment.

Tuition Reimbursement: We do accept tuition help through the Department of Human Services if you qualify. We will bill the State of Michigan directly for families who are entitled to reimbursement of child care costs. You can pick up the extra paperwork needed in the main office. If you are receiving DHS benefits, you are responsible for payment of any amounts not covered by DHS. If you are waiting to hear if you qualify for assistance and you need to begin services immediately, we still require your balance to be paid in full on the normal due date. If we receive qualification paperwork at a later date, and you have overpaid, your PELC account will be credited the overpaid amount.
