We Care is a prepaid, self-supporting program. Our only funds for staffing, snacks, art/ craft materials, games, sports equipment, etc. come exclusively from the annual registration fee and hourly tuition that we charge.
Registration Fee: There is an annual $25.00 non-refundable registration fee per child with an annual maximum of $50.00 per family.
Hourly Tuition: Families are charged a rate of $3.75/ hour for each child in the program. There is a minimum charge of one hour ($3.75) per shift (morning and afternoon), and then additional time is charged in quarter hour increments.
Children picked up after 6:00pm will be charged an additional late pickup fee of $7.50 per quarter hour.
Families are required to purchase 20 hours of care ($75) per child at a time. It is the responsibility of the parent/ guardian to ensure that there is a positive balance in the student’s account to continue We Care Services. Balances can be checked on the Parent Portal or at the We Care Center. As a courtesy, families may be notified when there is approximately $20 remaining in a child’s account.
There are three ways to pay:
1. Card Credit (please ask to be invoiced)
2. Checks (made payable to: Mentor Board of Education)
