To All Enrolled Families,

This letter is to thank you for your continuing support of Creative Learning Childcare.  It's been a pleasure to work with you and your child(ren) over the years.  Thanks so much for the opportunity of letting us care for your child(ren).

Due to the rising cost of doing business and the fact that I have not raised childcare rates since 2007, a slight rate increase will occur on June 30th, 2014.  All hourly rates will increase by .15 cents an hour.  With that being said, the new rates will increase to the following: 

  • Infant - $3.60
  • Toddler - $3.45
  • Preschool - $3.70
  • School-Age - $3.10

The catered lunch rates will also increase by .25 cents per lunch.  The lunch prices will now be:

  • Toddler - $2.75
  • Preschool - $3.25
  • School-Age - $3.75

Please keep in mind that all catered lunches are well balanced meals that come with milk.

Also per our Handbook, I will now be charging the annual enrollment fee of $20 per family.  This fee will now be charged annually, beginning in July of 2014.  Please refer to the Handbook, received upon initial enrollment, for more information.  Once the renewal fee is paid, you are welcome to ask for another Handbook.

Thanks for your patronage at Creative Learning.  We are committed to providing you with excellent childcare and preschool service and we look forward to serving you and your child(ren).
