Tuition / Family Fee

Payments are due by the 1st of the month by check or money order payable to Early Development Services. Tuition/family fee statements, receipts, etc. will be placed in the colored envelope in your child’s cubby.

No adjustments will be made in tuition/family fees for absences (either excused or unexcused), emergency closures, or holidays. Check or money order payments can be deposited in the payment box at each site or mailed directly to the Post Office Box.

Cash payments are not accepted at the centers and must be brought to the Administration Office.

Returned checks must be replaced with a money order or cash and include a returned check fee of $25.00.

Payments are considered late after the 7th of the month.

Incorrectly filled out checks/money orders will be considered delinquent. Delinquent fees will result in EDS issuing a Notice of Action (NOA) terminating services unless acceptable payment arrangements are made and approved. Please keep all receipts for your personal taxes.

Our tax ID number is 73-1656591.
