There is a yearly, non-refundable enrollment fee of $100 per child.
In addition, monthly tuition is due at the beginning of each month. Monthly tuition is figured by multiplying the days the child is enrolled by $30/day. Of course, some months will have more days than others, depending on how the calendar falls. Here’s an example for a child who is enrolled for Mondays:

3 Mondays in the month = $90

4 Mondays in the month = $120

5 Mondays in the month = $150

Full payment will be required even if your child misses days because of sickness or vacation.
Children can be enrolled for 1 or 2 days/week.
A 30 day notice is required prior to withdrawal from the program. If notice is not given, you will be required to pay the next month’s fees.

Before entering the children's wing, stop in the hall bathroom to wash your child's hands thoroughly (20 seconds of scrubbing).


Please keep your child home with you in the following instances:

  • Child has a fever of 100 degrees or higher. Children should also be fever free for the previous 24 hours without fever-reducing medications.
  • Child has experienced vomiting or diarrhea in the past 24 hours.
  • Child is not up to the activities of Mom's Day Out due to a miserable cough, severe runny nose, etc.

Please do not expose the other children or the teachers unnecessarily. Note that whenever your child misses their regular day(s) of MDO due to sickness, vacation, or other personal reasons, their fee for the day is still in effect. Our expenses continue even if the enrolled child does not attend.
