Take-A-Break Child Care Center has a unique tuition breakdown.

Many area childcare centers require heavy upfront fees, a weekly attendance commitment and will charge families even if their children are not in attendance. Take-A-Break Child Care charges families per hour, only when children are in attendance. We accept childcare assistance through the Department of Health & Human Services although parents are responsible to pay any portion not covered by DHHS assistance. Occasionally, free or reduced tuition can be offer based on individual family needs and other criteria. We are a non-profit childcare center. The availability of this assistance is based on the grant funding awarded to the Family Enrichment Center. Availability is subject to change.
