Lee’s Summit R-7 Before- and After-School Services reduces tuition for 2018-19

Decrease ranges from 18 to 34 percent for school district child care

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s award-winning child care program is making significant reductions to tuition rates for the 2018-19 school year with the changes designed to provide affordable access to quality care to more families. Known as BASS (Before- and After-School Services), the program serves children in preschool, elementary and middle school. BASS enrollment for 2018-19 begins April 30.

Tuition for full-time before- and after-school care is decreasing by 18 percent. Tuition for families choosing before- or after-school care will be reduced by 34 percent. Tuition for the 2018 summer program has also been reduced, and the deadline to enroll in Summer Learning Institute and BASS Summer Camp is April 23. In addition, enrollment fees will decrease from $80 to $40 per child with the family enrollment fee dropping from $105 to $65.

Monthly tuition fees will vary depending on the number of days that children are enrolled in Before- and After-School Services. For example, monthly fees for next year will range from $239 for December to $387 for April.

Other changes include the following.

  • Families that do not use BASS on non-school days will not be charged for child care on these days. The rates for non-school days have decreased to $25 a day.
  • The spring break tuition fee has been reduced.
  • BASS will no longer offer a part-time tuition rate for families needing care just a few days a week. Although this rate has been eliminated, the cost for full-time care in 2018-19 is just $44 more per month than the part-time rate this school year.  

With the changes, BASS will be on the lower end of costs when compared to before- and after-school programs in the Lee’s Summit area. BASS will continue to be a self-supporting program as required by the Board of Education.
