Tuition Rates

The sliding-fee scale we use is designed to accommodate parents at all levels in a way that, it is hoped, will be fair to all. You will be asked to fill out a declaration form for your total household income. If you are declaring the lowest level, and are not eligible for child care assistance, you will need to provide the center with a copy of your latest income tax return. You are responsible to inform the center of any change in household income.

Tuition Details

  • As stated in your contract, tuition remains the same each week for your family.
  • Tuition is charged for holidays and staff in-service days.
  • The center may also close for emergency weather situations when the Grand Rapids Public Schools are closed. Your account will be billed for these days up through 6 days in a calendar year. If there are more than 6 weather-related emergency closing days, you are eligible for an account credit for these additional weather-related days.
  • Families seeking the two lower reduced tuition rates will be required to provide proof of income.
  • Families with multiple year round, full-time children will be offered a 10% discount off the eldest child’s tuition as long as you are not receiving other tuition discounts. The discount will be applied to the lowest tuition rate. The discount does not apply to the school age program.
  • Parents who participate in tuition reimbursement programs need to notify the appropriate agency of this tuition, and are responsible for any applicable co-pays.

We have been offering quality programs provided by staff for over 50 years. We appreciate your interest and support of Westminster Child Development Center.
