DOD Child Care Fees Changing

The Department of Defense announced yesterday that it is changing its fee schedule for child care in DOD facilities. Fees have not be raised in six years and obviously, costs have been rising. The primary change is the addition of three new levels at the top of the pay scale, raising costs for high income families. These changes will take effect on September 30, 2010.

The new scale is:

- Category I – incomes of $29,400 or below – will pay between $44-$59 per week;

- Category II – incomes from $29,401 to $35,700 – will pay between $60-$74 per week;

- Category III – incomes from $35,701 to $46,200 – will pay between $75-$90 per week;

- Category IV – incomes from $46,201 to $57,750 – will pay between $91-$105 per week;

- Category V – incomes from $57,751 to $73,500 – will pay between $106-$121 per week;

- Category VI – incomes from $73,501 to $85,000 – will pay between $122-$130 per week;

- Category VII – incomes from $85,001 to $100,000 – will pay between $131-$133 per week;

- Category VIII – incomes from $100,001 to $125,000 – will pay between $134-$136 per week;

- Category IX – incomes of $125,001 or above – will pay between $137-$139 per week.
