ELIGIBILITY

Student families may be subsidized or non-subsidized. To be eligible for subsidized childcare, you must be a student at SSU (regularly matriculated) and be income eligible. In addition, children of students referred because the child is at risk of abuse or neglect can be eligible for subsidized childhood. Student families who are not eligible for subsidized care pay reduced student fees.

FEES

Subsidized Family Fees

Subsidized fees will be determined in accordance with the criteria and sliding fee scale established by the California State Department of Education each year. Subsidized fees are determined at enrollment and re-certification. They are based on family size and income. Parents must verify monthly income during the intake appointment, prior to the beginning the semester. Each subsidized family must be re-certified annually or within thirty days after family size, income or student status changes. It is the parent's responsibility to notify the Children's School office of any such changes within 10 days. Failure to notify our office of any relevant changes may be grounds for termination from the program.

Scheduled hours will be determined at the beginning of each semester based on the parent's schedule of classes and study time needs or work schedule. If a child is scheduled for a full day and is picked up early, the charge will still be for the full day. Hours can be reduced or increased with approval from the Assistant Director. A discount of 15% for student families and 10% for staff and faculty families is applied for the first child when siblings are enrolled.

(There is an annual $50.00 registration fee for non-subsidized families.)
