WKU Child Care Center Day Care Program Rates

WKUCCC provides fee-based day care services in addition to the federally funded slots for Head Start children aged 3-5 years old, and Early Head Start children, up to 36 months. 

Each family enrolled in the day care program will sign a Day Care Agreement form that will detail the weekly fees due and the terms associated with the enrollment needs of the family. Payment for child care services is required to be current in order to attend the day care facility, per terms of the Agreement. If you qualify for the Head Start or Early Head Start programs, your child will be enrolled for a half-day child care program at no cost.  

For day care only children, there is a yearly $35.00 registration fee for each family unit.   


Day Care Options - Hours at all locations are Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM

  • Full-Time Day Care Enrollment  is available 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM

  • Half-Time Day Care Enrollment is available:

    • AM Session - 7:30 AM - 12:30 PM or

    •  AM session – 7:30 AM - 12:30 PM or

Classroom assignment for an enrolled child is contingent upon available slots, age group, and appropriate placement of the child as determined by the Management Staff of WKUCCC and family input.   WKUCCC reserves the right to consolidate classes, if necessary.  If an appropriate slot is not available, the child will be put on a waiting list and the family will be contacted as soon as space becomes available.

Payment can be made by check or debit/credit card on a regular weekly or monthly basis, prior to attendance of the child.  Late payments, and/or returned checks, will accrue an additional fee of $20 per week for late payment or per check returned. If payment for day care services is not received each week, the custodial parent must meet with WKUCCC management prior to dropping off the enrolled child.

 Payment is also accepted from Audubon (State Child Care Assistance).  Contact 270-746-7072 for information.
