Child Care Rates

The rates charged by Country Fun Child Care cover care being available between agreed to drop-off and pick-up times. You pay for the contracted care slot, whether you choose to use the hours available or not. Rates are figured to reflect our town school calendar, vacation days, personal days, and ages. The current State of Maine Market Rate for Cumberland County is also considered.

Rates (as of 8/28/17) cover:

  • availability of a care slot, not hours of direct care
  • morning and afternoon snacks within the program
  • nutritious lunch
  • non-prescription formula for infants
  • diaper wipes and creams
  • sun lotion
  • 5 personal/health days – whenever possible closure will be for just part of the day, preferably early morning or late afternoon, which will require just a slight change for drop-off or pick-up. Notice will be provided as early as possible, but by 6 am on the day closing due to illness.
  • no school break week care (Dec., Feb. and April)
  • no summer care (Closed July and most of August – specific dates available once school calendar settled)
