Quincy After School Child Care (QCARE) accepts child care vouchers. Please contact Community Care For Kids to see if you qualify.
EZ-EFT PROGRAM -The EZ-EFT program is the required form of payment for all after school program families enrolled in care who do not have a child care voucher. However, EZ-EFT is suggested for all families, including those with vouchers. It is free to enroll in EZ-EFT. EZ-EFT is designed to take a tuition payment directly from one parent/guardian’s checking or savings account every other week (biweekly). This is an electronic transfer of funds. When a parent/guardian fills out the child registration application a registration fee of $50.00 is due. The parent/guardian will be required to enter a bank account and routing number to pay the registration fee. The parent/guardian agrees that the entered account information will be used for the EZ-EFT program for after school and summer tuition.
If at any time you need to change your bank account information on file or have questions about the EZ-EFT billing process, please contact the QCARE Billing Coordinator at our main office.
EZ-EFT is a biweekly, automatic payment program. The first payment is due the Friday before school starts and then bi-weekly every other Friday thereafter for the remainder of the school year. A PDF invoice with your tuition balance will be emailed to the email address provided approximately five days prior to the start of the two-week billing period (including any changes incurred during the two-week period such as late payment or late pick up fees).
Lump Sum Payments –Parents/guardians who are not able to enroll in EZ-EFT can make their payments in two installments. One installment for half the year is due in August and the other installment is due in January for the remainder of the year.

Tuition Scholarship Program
QCARE works hard to raise funds to offset tuition for those in need. If you feel your family may qualify for financial assistance, please complete the Tuition Scholarship Application and email it or drop it off at our main office with supporting documents. QCARE encourages all families who are struggling to make tuition payments to apply for a Tuition Scholarship Grant or to contact the QCARE Billing Coordinator to discuss payment options. Tuition Scholarship Grants are given on a first-come, first-served basis, pending funding. Once a scholarship application is processed the parent/guardian will be notified of the outcome and grant amount.
Schedule Change or Withdrawal From Program
The Quincy After School main office must be notified in writing or by phone if you intend to withdraw your child from the program or to change your scheduled days. A two week notice is mandatory. Notice cannot be given at the program site.
QCARE welcomes the feedback of our program participants and the general public. For more information about how to address concerns or leave feedback, please visit the Parent Handbook (PDF) or fill out an Online Contact Form.
