I do not charge you the full tuition for 10 weeks in the summer. I will hold your full time spot for the summer, in exchange:

  • I take off federal holidays and follow the MUSD school calendar. I am available teacher professional days but not available for care all school breaks/holidays

  • Monthly tuition stays the same each week throughout the school year, from August 1 - May 31.

  • I require that August’s non-refundable tuition be due the last business day of May. This guarantees that your little one’s spot is held when care begins again for upcoming school year.

  • I require that you pay $75 a week during the summer and your child is welcome to attend 2 days a week, 8:15-2:15, Tuesday & Wednesday or Wednesday & Thursday. More days of care are possible if needed. I suggest back to back days which makes it easier for your little one.


Benefits of bringing your little one in the summer:

  • keep them in a routine

  • it is not such a long break for them which makes them feel more comfortable

  • gives you a chance to get some errands done during the day without little ones under foot

I follow the Marana Unified School District school calendar for any closures related to EMERGENCIES or WEATHER ONLY.  There are no makeup days for emergency closures.  https://www.facebook.com/maranaschools


If the website states Late Start I will be open but depending on severity of weather I may be delayed in opening and will text parents for updates. I am open normal schedule for teacher professional days, conference weeks and summer break.  School staff see modified schedule under teacher page information.


My vacation/personal time is accrued 1.5 days per month for every one enrolled, and is used throughout the year. Unused days carry over into the next year’s contract if not used. Any and all unexpected closures for any reasons will use up vacation/personal time first.

Providing childcare is my career choice. I take my career seriously. I am not a babysitter, I take professional trainings each year to stay current and a college education focused on caring for little ones. After work up to nearly 70 hours a week, in comparison I take very little time off. Employers provide paid vacation time, sick leave, family medical leave, 401K, retirement packages, bonuses, health insurance, etc.  Vacation/personal time is all I have to help me stay fresh and available to care for children. My rates are pro-rated to reflect my time off.


If I need to attend funeral services, I may take up to a week of paid leave. This is an unusual circumstance and is not part of the vacation/personal time. In 17 years of caring for families I have never had to take time off for a funeral.
