Tuition fees are due each week the daycare is open, regardless of your child’s attendance during the week. This applies to all families, even though you may attend only two(2) or three(3) days per week.
Tuition is due on Monday of each week, no exceptions. You may feel free to pay for more than one week at a time if you like, as long as you are always paying ahead.
Please make checks payable to: Yellow Creek Day Care.
Tuition payments for more than one week need to be paid in advance.
Paying by check helps you and the day care keep accurate records. Please pay by check or money order.
If you must make a cash payment, please make sure to get a receipt from the director so we have that record of your payment. This cash payment should be the correct amount of tuition due for that week. We strongly recommend that you make your payment by check or money order to keep our records as error free as possible.
Late Fee: A late fee of $5.00 will be charged for tuition received after Monday at 5:30 p.m.
Free Week: Available to a child who is enrolled in the daycare on a year-round basis. Child must have been enrolled 6 months to be eligible for a “free week”. See director for details.
Late Pick-Up: YCDC closes at 5:30 p.m. and all Children MUST be picked up by that time. You will be charged $1 per minute that your child is here after 5:30 p.m., and this must be paid with your next tuition payment.
The day care is open approximately 50 weeks of the year. The decision to be open or closed over the Christmas/New Year holidays and the week of July 4, will be made by the day care and the board of directors at least two months prior to these holidays.
If there is a period of time you are not working, such as a summer leave, factory shut down or maternity leave, the board has decided, to ensure your spot, you will need to pay a 2-day min. Your child will only be allowed to come 2 days a week during the shut down/leave while paying for 2-days (this is the only time a 2-day min. will be permitted). Your PT/FT time spot will be held until the shut down/leave is over.

The existence of this program is dependent upon enrollment each year. It is subject to cancellation if minimum enrollment is not reached. Families will be given ample notice if cancellation becomes necessary.
A “Preschool Only” option for children 3 – 5 yrs. for families not in need of daycare.
Our preschool program is based on all key points of Kindergarten Readiness. The students are evaluated at the beginning of the school year, as well as again in the Spring. This enables us to find out their individual levels of development so we can focus on meeting everyone’s needs. The curriculum used is packed with activities for both academic and social growth. We also incorporate weekly Bible stories and verses into our routine and provide a loving, positive, Christian atmosphere for your child to learn in.

We are very excited to be the first in the area to provide this unique service! The idea behind the “Drop-In Service” is to help the families in our community who have occasional child care needs.
- We want to reach out to the stay-at-home moms who deserve a break once in a while, need to make a doctor or other appointment and don’t want to have a child or two in tote;
- What do you do with the school-age child who has a day off of school due to fog;
- An unexpected event has occurred (i.e. funeral) and you need a place for the children for a day;
- Your regular babysitter cancels on you last minute due to illness.
- You lost your job and need to spend a day going to submit applications or attend interviews.

All payments are expected at pick-up on the day of service, no exceptions.
Multi-Child Discount: Youngest child pays full rate, each additional child pays 50% of their rate. For example, the total cost for 3 hours of care for
1 infant and 1 potty trained 3-yr-old would be $ 24.50 ($ 17 + $ 7.50).
