their kids memberships
why membership fees?
membership fees help their kids offset the cost of running thorough background checks on each caregiver applicant (approximately $75-$100/caregiver) as well as support the costs of our low-fee playgroups and free workshops!
membership fees also help sustain our sliding scale and scholarship programs which help families of all income levels access quality child care. their kids strongly believes in the redistribution of wealth and people helping people.
families who are invited into the collective choose the membership package that best suits their individualized needs and can switch membership types annually.
