Private Fees and Vouchers
As a community child care, St. Louis is committed to providing fun/safe/high quality/school readiness child care to all children. We accept private fee paying parents. We also accept DHHS, ASPIRE and Transitional Vouchers, and any public and private subsidy a parent receives for child care services.
Please call us for our current rates for infant, toddler, preschool and school-age care. Rates are based on the number of hours of care each child requires.
**Important Tax Information For Parents
The Maine legislature passed a law that expands the income tax credit for child care expenses. A Maine taxpayer (parent) who enrolls a child in a child care center or home with a Level 4 Quality Certificate is eligible for a double child care tax credit on their state income tax return. Currently an individual is allowed a credit against the tax otherwise due in the amount of 25% of the federal tax credit allowable for child and dependent care. In the law, this credit doubles in amount if the child care expenses were incurred through the use of quality child care. The credit may result in a refund of up to $500.
Please contact us if you need the Quality Certificate number!
Morning and afternoon snacks are provided to all children at no cost. Parents are responsible for providing their child's own lunch.
