I realize the financial burden child care places on parents, and hope parents understand that, as a business, child care places financial burdens on the provider. These include but are not limited to groceries, utilities, insurance, toys, equipment, as well as wear and tear on the home. I also have a financial responsibility to my family.

Tax receipts are provided once a year in February and cover all fees for the previous tax year.
