The Blue Springs School District’s Prime Time Program provides high quality before school, after school, and full-day service in a safe and nurturing environment that supports children, youth, parents, and the community. To assure sustainability, the program is fee-based with weekly tuition covering all operating costs, including field trips and special activities. As a result of being fee-based, scholarships and/or subsidies are not offered. Service is available August through May at the district’s 13 elementary schools and during the summer at designated locations. Prime Time expands and enriches learning opportunities through social, recreational, and personal life skills development. Prime Time partners with the home and community, offers a wide variety of experiences, and affords families service within the convenient confines of their resident school.

Beginning February 1, 2021, there will be a change regarding fees associated with electronic childcare payments.  In lieu of the current $3.00 processing fee adjustment for electronic payments, Eleyo will automatically charge a 3.69% programming fee.  This fee will only be applied to payments made by credit card, debit card, or those deducted automatically from a bank account.  Because this fee is paid directly to Eleyo, the fee will not show on the Prime Time weekly invoice but will show directly on the receipt once payment is made.

BSSD Prime Time will continue to offer the flexibility of paying by check or money order without an additional fee, or the convenience of paying electronically with the above mentioned fee included. 

In summary, all electronic payments will be charged an automatic 3.69% programming fee that will only show on the paid receipt.  This will replace the current $3.00 processing fee adjustment shown on weekly invoices. 

Please contact your site lead if you have any questions.
