Child Care

Before and After Care

If you need before and after care, you can contact the front desk to fill out the appropriate forms. Before and after care costs are based upon the State child care rates per our grant requirements. You may be eligible for other grant funds to help pay for those additional expenses.

Tuition is payable in advance for your child’s slot. Payment is due in full at the first of each month. This includes CCDF and DSHS co-pays. Payroll deduction or per capita is an option for Tribal employees/members as well.

Rates and Discounts:

  • The academy offers a discount to full pay clients with more than one child attending the academy.
  • The first child or only child will be charged the ½ day state rate, Monday – Thursday, except for Fridays. On Friday, they will be charged the full day state rate.
  • The second child in the family will receive a 10% discount on their overall total monthly charge for the before and after care for their children.
  • If there are three or more children in the family then they will receive a 15% discount off their total monthly charge for the before and after care services.
  • Children enrolled in after care who leave after 5:00 PM will be charged $2/minute at 5:01 PM.

These discounts are for families that are not receiving DSHS or CCDF. Those families are already receiving assistance through the State or Federal government.

Statements will be provided as a courtesy; however, families are still expected to make their payments on time to the cashier’s window at the Administration Building.

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 and 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 child care arrears. There will be a fee charged for any NSF checks returned.

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

We also provide help signing up for the CCDF Child Care Grant.
