Child Care

Extended Care Services

If you have an enrolled student at BJTELA and require Extended Care, you can contact your family advocate or the Billing Coordinator to fill out the appropriate application. Students must be eligible for a CCDF grant to enroll in childcare. Availability is limited per classroom.

Extended Care costs are based upon the sliding fee scale rates per our grant. Extended Care billing is completed in advance for your child’s slot. Payment is due in full by the 15th of each month. Payroll deduction is an option for tribal employees.

Billing Information

Parents will be notified when payments are past due. Past due accounts will not be tolerated. If an account is two weeks past due, parents will be asked to remove their child from Before & After Care. Payments in arrears will be taken from per capita if arrangements are not made to catch up and stay current. Non-Tribal members may be referred to small claims court for their unpaid childcare arrears. There will be a fee charged for any NSF checks returned.

Please contact the Billing Coordinator for any questions about billing or child care assistance.
