Tuition Rates

For current tuition rates please contact:
Director: Brandy Theis
Phone: (419) 223-1044

Note: Discounted rate ONLY applies to Rhodes faculty, staff and students and OSU faculty and staff.

Tuition rates are based on scheduled days, not attendance. You are expected to pay for your child’s “reserved space” within the classroom regardless of attendance.

Part-time students must have set days of attendance (i.e. Monday through Thursday or Tuesday & Thursday, etc.). This is required so that we may fill the days that your child is not in attendance with children who may require opposite days.  Therefore, changes in your part-time schedule are typically not interchangeable in order to prevent unlawful child-staff ratio.

Registration/Annual Registration Fee is due upon enrollment and annually each September. Registration fee is $45 per child.

Vacation/Sick/Personal Days: Each child enrolled will be granted an equivalent of 2 weeks’ vacation (these days can be used for vacation, sick days or personal days). These days must be used in 1 day increments (no ½ days allowed). You must notify the administrator/director when you wish to use these days and you will not be charged for those days. IF you fail to notify the administrator/director the charges for those days will remain on your account.

  • Full time (5 days per week) = 10 days
  • Part time (4 days per week) = 8 days
  • Part time (3 days per week) = 6 days
  • Part time (2 days per week) = 4 days

Rhodes State College Early Learning Center is part of the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program. The center prepares and serves breakfast, lunch and snack on site.  All meals and snacks served meet the USDA food requirements/guidelines and are included in the tuition.
