Rates & Fees
Due to our structured preschool schedule, we book care in 1-hour increments (beginning of each hour) to minimize disruption of activities. We encourage a 2-hour minimum to engage children in our daily lesson plans. We offer pre-booking online or drop-in based on availability.
- $40 application fee per child
- $15 / per hour for first child
- $10 / per hour for sibling(s)
- $6 per meal / $2 per snack
- $1.50 per diaper if Tinker Town’s diapers are used
- $10 fee for drop-ins during nap/rest time
Monthly child care payments made electronically require a checking account. A direct debit will be processed by Brightwheel at the beginning of each month. Special arrangements must be discussed and arranged with the Director if unable to make electronic payments.
Late Pick-up Fee
If a child is picked up past Tinker Town’s normal closing times, a staff member will remain with the child and a late fee of $1 per minute will be charged in addition to the normal child care rate. If a child is picked up late multiple times, a $5 per minute late fee will be charged on the third offense. After three times being picked up late – parents
will no longer be allowed to drop-off.
