EFFECTIVE February 1, 2018

Due to the increase in minimum wage (and in preparation for the next increase) and to ensure all of our staff are paid according to their level and experience – which we believe they should be; we are forced to increase our childcare fees effective Feb 1, 2018. Parents who currently have children registered in our program will see this increase take place July 1, 2018.
