The 2011-2013 state operating budget raises annual child care licensing fees effective July 1, 2011. This money goes directly into the state general fund, not to the Department of Early Learning.
The new annual fee structure is as follows:
Child care centers and school-age programs
• $125 per year for the first 12 children; and
• $12 per year for each additional child up to the facility’s licensed capacity
Family home child care programs
$30 per year
This fee increase will be reflected on the invoice licensees receive 90 days prior to the anniversary date of your license. If you have already received an invoice because your fee is due in July, August or September, a supplemental invoice will be sent to you with details on how to pay this fee increase.
