Tuition, Fees, & Payment Requirements

The school district supports our Early Childhood Program by providing and maintaining our child care facility and utilities. However, tuition is the primary funding source for staff salaries and the purchase of equipment and supplies.  A non-refundable registration fee of $25.00 is required with your enrollment packet.

Optional Friday Child Care will be available for an additional fee of $30 per day for Infants & Young Toddler Care and $25 per day for Older Toddlers & Preschoolers. However, the center will ONLY be staffed when the minimum enrollment requirements are met to ensure cost effectiveness. Therefore, advanced sign-up is required to ensure availability.

If you qualify for D.E.S. subsidy, you will be required to pay a co-payment (if applicable) and any difference between the D.E.S. subsidy amount and the center’s fee schedule.  If you are receiving D.E.S. childcare assistance and your child is absent, you will be charged accordingly (D.E.S. only reimburses 2 absences per month). 

Tuition must be paid in advance of the child’s first enrolled day of each week. If payment is not received, your child will not be able to attend the center. Children who are absent from the center for more than 1 week without advance notice may be withdrawn from the center.  All payments must be made by check or money order only and payable to Tiny T-Birds. Parents presenting checks for payment will need to show a current driver’s license or proof of ID to the Center Director. All payments should be placed in the secure payment box located on the door of the Director’s office. Payments can also be made through the Web Store on the CRUHSD website for an additional fee of $2.50, be sure to forward your payment confirmation to the Assistant Director at dwilliams@crushd.org to ensure payment is posted to your account. Cash will not be accepted. No refunds will be given.

NSF CHECKSBeginning July 1, 2007, the check writer will be notified by the Mohave County Treasurer of returned checks for non-sufficient funds, and asked to pay the full amount with fees, within 12 days of receipt of the notice, to the Mohave County Treasurer.  Unless this amount is paid in person within the 12 days, with a cashier’s check or money order, all information relating to this incident will be reported to the Mohave County Attorney’s Office for criminal prosecution. If your check is returned, we will require all future payments to be made by money order.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

Tuition scholarships are funded by First Things First (FTF) and administered through Valley of the Sun United Way. We receive a limited number of scholarships to be distributed to eligible families based off of family eligibility criteria formed by FTF and will be awarded to eligible families based on the center enrollment priority.

For a child receiving a scholarship, the following guidelines must be satisfied to ensure proper early education and ongoing participation:

  • Attend a minimum of 28 hours per week, which must equal a minimum of 112 hours per month
  • An 85% attendance rate is expected based on the time that the child is scheduled to attend
  • Parents will be charged a weekly co-pay* of $20.00 and if applicable, siblings will be an additional $10.00 co-pay (not to exceed 10% of their gross annual household income)
