Family Child Care
"Special Care for Special Kids"
* * * YOUNG STAR RATING 3 STARS * * *
Here is an example of how I break down my age groups and worked out the rates. I use the county rates that they publish as the minimum. I use a 40 hour wk and go from there. We have not had any pay increase in our county for 2 years, so I have increased my rates and now have decreased them to better help out the families.
*Rates effective February 1, 2012 thru August 31, 2013
Because of the hard times clients have been having and wanting to help; I have adjusted my rates to better meet their needs. I hope this helps.
