What are credits? 
Credits are the currency we use at the Wishing Tree to provide flexible child care options at affordable rates. Members prepay for credits through the monthly plan of their choice.

Can you explain the credit system in 5 easy steps?
Step 1: Determine the number of credits needed monthly
Step 2: Prepay for credits through a monthly autopay
Step 3: Use our services
Step 4: Credits auto-load monthly
Step 5: Cancel at anytime

Can Wishing Tree save me money? 
Definitely! The more credits you purchase through recurring payments, the cheaper each credit costs. Credits are as low as $5 each! That’s a $5 car ride or $15 for 3 hours of child care! We also sell gift cards here. 

Credit Plans Monthly Fee
6 Credits  $60 ($10 per credit)
12 Credits $96 ($8 per credit)
24 Credits $168 ($7 per credit)
60 Credits* $360 ($6 per credit)
200 Credits* $1000 ($5 per credit)

This is a recurring monthly fee. Cancel at anytime through your online profile. Credits expire one year after purchase or when you cancel your membership.

*The 200 credits or 60 credits can be purchased as a one-time purchase (not on a recurring basis) at any time for $1000 or $360, respectively. This must be done in person or on the phone. Please call 703-687-3841 for more details.

Can I use credits later?       
Credits are valid for up to one year after purchase. This is flexibility at its finest! Per our terms and conditions, credits are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Need extra credits?   
Members can buy a single pack of credits in addition to their monthly credits at the member rate. For example, the Smiths use the 12 Credit Plan, but need extra credits over the summer. They purchase a one-time 80 Credit Package for $480.
