As 2020 comes to a close all I can say is…….THANK GOODNESS! What a crazy and let’s face really difficult year this has been but we have made it through and are ready for 2021. In the new year, some things will remain the same, at least for a while longer, we still have to wear masks at TTLC, we are still in smaller groups, we still have increased staffing required by the state and parents are still dropping off at the door. We are hopeful that these things will end in 2021. Beginning on January 1, 2020, the next planned minimum wage increase takes effect and in order to attract and retain the most qualified staff at TTLC, we have to adjust our pay scale for our employees. This combined with the dramatically increased costs of operating in our current health crisis will necessitate a larger than normal rate increase. We are in the process of working out the smallest increase that will allow us to maintain the highest quality care and new tuition schedules will be sent home next week with the new rates that will take effect January 1st and we remain committed to locking in these rates for the entire year. I hope you have a fantastic, but safe, holiday and look forward to getting back to normal life soon.
