Extra Care Registration


Registration fee

Registration Fee A non-refundable registration fee is required, per child, at the beginning of each school year. This fee goes toward processing required licensing paperwork and helps purchase supplies at the beginning of each school year. The fee must be paid before a registration form can be accepted.

Sibling Discount

Sibling discount applies to the lower paying child’s rate. Please refer to the current year Rate Card.

Financial Aid

State (DHS) assistance will be accepted for qualified families. Parents are required to pay all fees not covered by DHS. Parents will also be required to pay ALL child care fees until they are Approved by DHS for Child Care Assistance.

Contracted vs Drop-In

Note: Due to significant Wait-List, Drop-In Care may be unavailable.

Contracted Weekly Schedule

You select a certain schedule that you stick to for your child to attend care. The benefits of a contracted schedule are that a place is saved for your child, and you realize a discounted rate. This also means that you pay for this contracted schedule regardless of attendance. As a contracted client, you have permanently reserved the spot(s) for your child(ren).

Drop-in Clients

Drop-in Clients pay a higher daily rate than Contracted Daily or Weekly Clients. Payment for drop-in care is only due if care is provided. However, openings for drop-in care are on a space-available basis and cannot be guaranteed. It is always good to have back-up care if you decide that drop-in care is your best option, in the event our numbers prevent us from accepting additional clients on any given day. If we are near capacity, we would inform all drop-in clients of the need to reserve their space as needed.

M & M Extra Care closes for the day


If school gets out early for a Half-Day, or is closed for a Full Day of In-Service (a/k/a Teacher Training), then M&M Extra Care is MOST LIKELY available for service. Unfortunately, we may NOT be available on most holidays, because the school building would be considered as CLOSED.
