 Fee Structure 



Full-time SRU Students (9 or more semester hours $3.00/hour
Faculty, Staff, Community $18.00/day for less than 5 hours
$4.00/day before school only
$6.00/day after school only
$9.00/day before and after school

The Faculty/Staff/Community daily rate will be converted into a weekly fee based on the proposed schedule. This rate will appear on the Financial Agreement along with the number of Unpaid Days per session (see description to follow). Each family will be permitted not more than two permanent schedule changes during each session.

If you are registered for part-time and you go over the 4.9 hours, you will be bumped up to the full-time rate for that day.

School age children will not be charged extra for two hour delay mornings. However, the part day rate will apply for early dismissal days and the full day rate will apply for holiday and school snow says.

No one will be charged for the days that the center is scheduled to be closed (New Year's Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, thanksgiving Day and the day after, Christmas Day, the week between Christmas and New Year's).

University students and faculty members will not be charged for days when classes are not in session (Spring Break, Christmas Break, Professional Development Days, etc.). If you are planing on your child attending on those days, you will need to leave a note in the basket.

  • Discounted rates are available for multiple children from the same family
  • The student rate reflects a subsidy paid through the Student Government Association and the General Services Fee

Unpaid Days Policy

You are responsible for paying for the days and times for which you contracted. We have allowed unpaid days to allow for vacation, sick time. The year is divided into three sessions: Fall (September-December); Spring (January-May); and Summer (June-August). The chart below lists how many unpaid days each child gets per session. After that number is reached, you will be billed your regular rate for each day.

If you are enrolled for 5 days/week each child gets 8 unpaid days/session
If you are enrolled for 4 days/week each child gets 6 unpaid days/session
If you are enrolled for 3 days/week each child gets 4 unpaid days/session
If you are enrolled for 2 days/week each child gets 2 unpaid days/session


The U.S. Department of Education has approved a grant of $93,920 for the child care center.
