Monthly Rates
 

At Step by Step, we try our best to keep tuition rates affordable for all families while still providing high quality education and covering our costs. 
Prices listed in the tuition calculation chart below are per month. Tuition payments are due on the first of every month for that month of care.  Tuition covers the cost of staff, insurance, most materials (exception of some materials for infant car and feeding), lunches, snacks, and drinks.  If eligible for multiple discounts, only the highest discount will be applied.  If eligible, qualifying discount is applied after all third-party subsidies are deducted.

For eligible families in need of tuition assistance, Step by Step does accept subsidy from Child Care Information Services (CCIS), as well as Penn State’s child care assistance, with no extra charges to families. Learn more about CCIS subsidy at http://cdfc.org/CCISCentreClinton.php.  Learn more about Penn State’s child care assistance at www.childcaresubsidy.psu.edu
 

Tuition payments are due on the first of every month for that month of care.  For families receiving CCIS subsidies, co-payments are due on the first day of each week of care.  Payment can be made by cash, credit card or checks. 
 

New tuition rates will go into effect on the first of the month following your child’s birthday, if it affects his/her rate.  Tuition rates may be altered each year at the start of July to account for cost of living increases.
