Tuition & Payment Policy

Tuition for your first week of care is due at registration. After that, your tuition fee is due each Friday for the upcoming week. You may make payments by check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, automatic withdrawal from checking or savings accounts, or the “click to pay” link on your weekly invoice. For your protection, Day Early Learning does not accept cash payments.

Sibling Discounts

A $5 sibling discount is available for families paying full fee or receiving a Day Early Learning scholarship or partner discount. Families paying with third-party vouchers (i.e., CCDF, On My Way Pre-K, etc.) must pay the co-pay as detailed on their voucher and are not eligible for sibling discounts.

Partner Discounts

Parents who are employed by a Day Early Learning partner are eligible for a $10 weekly discount. Families paying with third-party vouchers (i.e., CCDF, On My Way Pre-K, etc.) are not eligible for partner discounts and must pay the co-pay as detailed on their voucher.

Financial Aid

Early Learning Indiana offers a Tuition Assistance Program for families that qualify. Qualification for these scholarships is based on family size and income. These scholarships are funded by the contributions of generous supporters, corporations, foundations and individuals. Please check with a member of your school leadership team to see if you qualify.

Late Fees

A $10 past due charge will be assessed on unpaid tuition balances at the close of business each Tuesday. If full payment is not received by Wednesday, we reserve the right to require a written payment plan or to exclude your child from our program. If your family’s financial situation changes, we are always happy to explore additional financial aid options.
