Now, more than ever, it is important for children to be in a safe environment with caring teachers who help them learn, grow, laugh and love. Because of the mission and generosity of First Lutheran Church, together, we are able to support families and children. As the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cost to provide quality child care has gone up substantially, but it is imperative we continue to provide a caring and safe place for children.
In order to adhere to the Health Department guidelines, we have had to make changes that have impacted our budget. It was necessary to reduce the number of the number of teachers to cover door monitoring, cleaning and subbing. In addition, our costs for cleaning and hygiene supplies have increased tremendously due to quantity needed and large price increases.
