Happy Friday! A third year of minimum wage increases in Washington State has significantly raised our center’s operating expenses. In order to accommodate these changes, and to continue aligning with comparable childcare rates in Shelton, GCCC is implementing a private pay rate increase, effective May 1. This increase will not affect copayment rates for families receiving state assistance, and our annual registration fee will remain at $50 per child. For more information, please contact the Childcare Office. Have a great weekend!
