Parents are responsible to pay their child care providers for any costs above their child care subsidy payment. Providers need to set up a DWS Provider Portal in order to receive susidy payments. To set up the DWS Provider Portal email or call Care About Childcare @ Five County: 800-543-7527.

How would you handle this situation if it came up in your business?

A new family child care provider in your area calls and says, "I don't know what to charge parents. What do you charge for fulltime infant and toddler care?" How do you respond?

Answer: It is against federal law for competitors to discuss their rates. You should respond, "I cannot share any information about my rates because to do so would break the law. If you want to know what the average rates are for providers in this area, call our local child care resource and referral agency. They can give you some helpful information." (From Legal Hypotheticals, Nov. 2004, Redleaf National Institute)
