Fees (effective July 1, 2012)
Extended Day (more than 7 hours per day): $70*
Full Day (4 to 7 hours per day): $67
Half Day with meal (less than 4 hours per day): $45
Half Day without meal (less than 4 hours per day): $40
*Our extended day rate more accurately reflects the cost of providing care beyond an average day of seven hours of care. We know that our average program participant attends between six to hours hours per day. This change in rates provides better options for families that require an extended day, while keeping our average daily charge competitive and meeting our expenses.
Grants may be available from the New York State Office for the Aging, Onondaga County Department of Aging and Youth and other sources for those who apply and qualify. For more information on financial assistance, call (315) 472-4204.
