To keep up with the ever rising costs of items needed to provide quality child care, Apple Blossom is finding it necessary to introduce a modest fee increase, effective July 1, 2016.
The new agency suggested rates are as follows:
0-50 hours: $6.80 per hour
50-99: $6.25 per hour
100-180 hours: $600 per month
Overtime: $600 + $6.25/hr over 180
We appreciate your understanding and patronage!
We greatly appreciate all the hard work, love, and effort our providers put into their day homes. From the bottom of our hearts; thank you.
We had a request from a provider asking for feedback from you! This provider has an infant who spends lunch time preparations in the high chair. Does anyone have any ideas how to keep this child entertained? Toys are not cutting it as they just end up on the floor. Please comment below with your suggestions! Thanks.
Thank you to all of the providers who attended the Love and Logic seminar. A big thank-you to Bruce Kristianson for putting it together for us and giving us such an engaging overview. There was a lot of interest in getting the power point. As soon as Bruce makes this available to us we will pass it along to those of you who attended and are interested.
Police Point Park contacted us to let us know about a program they are running right now:
Police Point Storybook Offer
It sounds like a lot of fun. I did ask if the city bus went into Police Point Park – it doesn’t. The closest stop is near the Unity Lutheran Church off Palliser Place NE.
If you have any questions or would like to book a program you can contact the Nature Line at (403)529-6225.
Or rather, the vegetables of our garden – check out what we have growing at the office garden! (Yes, that is a purple carrot). Our pumpkins are coming along nicely as well and trying to take over the rest of the garden.
Providers – please keep sending in your great craft ideas to share with everyone else! firstname.lastname@example.org
