Fees Overview

Rates are updated each July 1. 

No Part-time options are available


The following information will take effect August 1, 2021, and will be effective through June 30, 2022:

Tuition Rate and Payments:

  • Monthly tuition is due the first business day of each month for childcare services provided that month (i.e., tuition paid on July 1 is for the month of July). The Center does not accept credit cards or cash. Checks to be made payable to CCCC.


  • A late fee of $25.00 will be charged and enforced if payment is not received on the third business day of each month.


  • Colorado College employees may elect to have the monthly tuition deducted from their paychecks. A form authorizing payroll deductions for childcare tuition payments must be completed and submitted to center administration. Danielle Martinez, Center Director signs the form and then submits the completed form to the office of Human Resources for the deductions to begin on your paycheck. The monthly tuition will be deducted in two payments; on the 15 of each month for childcare services provided on the 1st through the 15th and deducted on the last business day of the month for childcare services provided on the 16th through the last business day of the month.


  • A $25 service fee for returned checks will be charged.

Tuition Discount:

A tuition discount program is available for full time Colorado College employees and students. The discount is based on the total household income, (U.S. Census Bureau, Colorado Springs City Data) not the individual college employee’s wage. The household income ranges to qualify for a discount is:

Household Income of $0.00- $64,712 = 20% discount

If your household qualifies for a discount, please provide Kim or me a copy of your 1040 tax form for 2020 for verification purposes.

There will be a $30 sibling discount applied each month to currently enrolled full-time families. (I.e., full time preschool-full tuition, sibling infant- $30 monthly discount applies.) Both children must be enrolled in the center for discount to apply.

Child Pick Up Late Fees:

We pride ourselves on being a school whose parents are on time and strive to have no violations of late pick up. Children who are at the center late get anxious and center employees who have worked a full day need to know they can count on leaving their promptly.  

Parents arriving after the center closes will be penalized as follows:


$5.00           1-5 minutes late

$10.00         6-10 minutes late

$15.00       11-15 minutes late

$20.00       16-20 minutes late

$25.00       21-25 minutes late

$30.00       26-30 minutes late


If there are 4 or more late pick-ups in a 12-month period, there will be a $40.00 late fee per additional violation and a meeting will be set up with the parents and Director to discuss the continuation of childcare at the center.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Kim or me. Please review the childcare rate chart attached to this letter.

Thank you for your continued support,

Danielle Martinez
