“I never thought that my son would go to same childcare that I went to back in 1986. It has been a great experience. Jackson loves his teachers, and he loves coming here.” Alisha Comer, 22. K-State architecture student.



The K-State Center for Child Development realizes that families have different incomes and may not be able to afford the full cost of childcare services. The center has a sliding fee scale that is based on size of household, household income and University Affiliation. Varieties of grants are available to eligible families and may substantially reduce cost of childcare.

Additional costs:

  • One-time application fee of $30 (due with Inquiry for Care form) 
  • One-time enrollment fee of $100 (due upon enrollment)
  • Recurring semester supply costs (fall, spring and summer) varying between $10 and $30
  • Annual $40 registration fee (usually due around September 1)

For more information about the fees please contact the center at (785) 532-3700 or
