We would like to remind parents of the importance of signing in and out properly. Please, fill in the time AND sign it. We realize it takes a few extra minutes. It is, however, required for licensing and for the protection of your child. The sign-in sheets are used to make sure that every child is accounted for after field trips, during fire drills, and when participating in special activities.
Most of you are very good about reading the calendar and checking your child’s box, if you have not been doing this, please make a point to do so. Research shows that children who have parents who interact with and reinforce the child care program receive much more benefit from the program than children whose parents look upon the center as just a place to care for their child’s physical needs.
Updated Tuition Schedule
TTLC is a totally fee supported school… no big corporation, no government funds… just the fees paid by our parents. Each year a small increase in tuition fees is necessary to meet our rising costs and to give our many returning teachers a well-deserved raise. Your Center Director will provide a copy of the 2019 – 2020 tuition schedule effective September 1. We will continue to work hard to stretch each dollar and keep fees as low as possible while still providing high-quality care.
Please be aware that this year the fees will have to be adjusted more than usual because of the significant raises being made to the minimum wage by the State of Illinois. All of our assistants and seasonal workers will have to be brought up to the new minimum wage and our dedicated, well trained, educated classroom and program teachers will have to be moved up so that they do not become minimum wage employees. We want to assure you we will do our best to balance the cost of the new minimum wage with the need to keep costs for parents as economical as possible.
